Bespoke Development & Systems Integration
Innovative add-ons to your ERP solution
To ensure that you get the very most out of your ERP investment, sometimes add-on applications or customisations are required. These can be designed to improve system processes to save time and money, gain additional functionality and generally make life easier. Our talented in-house engineering team have developed hundreds of solutions for our clients covering a number of key areas. We will work closely with you to understand your requirements in order to develop innovative, bespoke solutions.
Here we explain why you can build bespoke elements into your ERP Implementation.
Rip and replace or integrate? We'll show you why integration is a great option.
We have built a number of powerful tools to help us to develop apps and integrate systems.
We have successfully developed and delivered hundreds of individual applications for our customers across many diverse industry sectors. Our solutions integrate seamlessly, securely and in real-time with existing ERP solutions and have enabled our customers to maximise the value, flexibility and effectiveness of their solution.
Bespoke Development in an ERP implementation is often discouraged. It is believed that it can slow down an implementation or cause, rather than solve issues. However, there are many situations where bespoke development is essential to configure an ERP solution to meet the needs of the customer. Due to our extensive experience of developing products and building bespoke apps for our customers, bespoke is not only possible but a positive addition to any successful implementation or upgrade.

Following their successful takeover of global engineering firm, Hamworthy, Wärtsilä were rolling out the SAP ERP solution across their business, moving away from their legacy ERP solution, IFS.
