Bespoke Software Development Insight – ERP 9th March 2021
ERP, or Enterprise Resource Planning, is the integrated management of main business processes, mediated by software and technology.
An essential system for growing businesses, this key software is essential for maintaining and managing every single aspect of a business without the need for more and more staff. This of course lowers costs and drastically improves efficiency.
We have considerable history in producing bespoke ERP systems for clients and, despite the pandemic, we have been busy working with some clients to produce some exceptional results. Rather than a ‘one size fits all’ off-the-shelf software, we create a truly bespoke system using both best industry practices and the knowledge of our clients, as well as their employees. This enables us to create a system that is not only user-friendly but incorporates all aspects of their business in one seamless flow.
The key to our success and what really sets us apart from other developers is how closely we keep the client to the design processes. Each industry, each niche in that industry and each individual business can be exceptionally different. While most work with good business practices, these differ in interpretation and implementation; which highlights how difficult it can be to force changing entire work flows and practices to fit an expensive off the shelf solution.
As clients have differing history with software and technology, we also design the GUI and flow around them – as this is the easiest way to ensure rapid competency, understanding and ease of use with their ERP system. The learning curve shortens dramatically and everything feels much more practiced and natural, even if the system is brand new!
We take this approach with each individual module and ask, who will be using this, how would they like to use this and what can be automated to make this easier? Feedback is an important part of development and with our rapid prototype construction we can ensure that employees can also be a part of this discussion and development, without impacting our delivery times.
Working with businesses and understanding them is important to us, as it allows us to deliver solutions in the best and most efficient way for the client. After all, your success is our success.
