Professional Services

Our professional services team specialises in IBM, Microsoft and agile technologies. We take a ‘hands on’ approach to delivering structured design for software development, systems integration, IBM i, System i, AS400, application modernisation and migration. Our engagements include Outsourcing Projects, Enterprise Application Development, Integration, Migration, ‘End of Life’ Management, Mobile and eCommerce solutions delivery. Our technology expertise and credentials help companies drive innovation, business process efficiencies and cost savings.

Defining the Project

We adopt a phased approach to defining and ensuring project success. Prior to any engagement we conduct an audit or discovery phase to fully assess the business requirements and existing technology environment. The output from this initial assessment is used to develop a project strategy, technology roadmap, project implementation framework and agreed deliverables. We align the project strategy with budgets, timescales and business process objectives.

Delivering Expertise

Organisations achieve significant cost saving benefits and business continuity by engaging our development and project management resource. Our teams bring breadth and depth of technology and business process experience having delivered successful projects for a wide variety of organisations across multiple industry sectors.

Systems and Application Modernisation

According to Garnter, 80% of company IT budget is spent on ‘keeping the lights on’ representing ‘dead money’. Our modernisation strategy provides a path that reduces the perceived risk and cost of modernisation. We evolve applications into workflow driven rich Windows or Web applications, integrated with other systems and running on both the IBM i and Windows platforms. Our projects include application modernisation for eCommerce, Mobile and CRM integration.

Application Development

Our hybrid development skills and expertise help organisations develop business specific applications as in our SaaS product CMIS, designed to automate committee and eGovernance processes. Our expertise also helps organisations to evolve bespoke applications heavily customised, beyond recognition in some instance or where the original code or documentation is no longer available. Application software packages that we have modernised include BPCS, JD Edwards, Infor, JBA System 21, MAPICS,JDA MMS, E3, WM, Synon2e, and Crystal Reports. The skill set of our team saves organisations migration costs often driven by the lack of suitably qualified in house resource, and knowledge of application development, integration or the latest technologies and tools set.

Integration and Migration

We help organisations gain competitive advantage by staying ahead of the latest technology trends and business user demands by delivering skilled resource. Many organisations have a myriad of computing environments and maintaining business as usual whilst implementing new solutions can often be costly not to mention a drain on existing resources. We have supported organisations to migrate to ERP solutions like SAP or integrate existing applications through modernisation. Our team is skilled in evolving applications that are bespoke or heavily customised. In some instance the original code or documentation is no longer available yet our team has successfully re-developed and modernised the application, saving our clients the huge expense of migration.

Engagement and Delivery Model

Our engagement and delivery model is designed to build close relationships with our clients, address diverse requirements, from application development, project management, remote and managed support, improve collaboration, communication and operational efficiency. We adopt a flexible approach to engaging with companies and utilising our multi-faceted teams organisations can save recruitment costs and retain quality skilled resource on a continuous or ad-hoc basis. We often start by delivering a single project to demonstrate our expertise and the cultural fit with an organisations in house teams, ethos and vision. This approach has resulted in our teams delivering a successful project every time. Proven by the fact we have never lost a client as a result of project failure.
