Bespoke Development:

Integrated Future have a wealth of experience creating custom solutions that either seamlessly integrate with your existing ERP, or stand alone to solve a specific problem. By using the latest technologies from all major development platforms, we are not constrained to any specific technologies.  Having worked with most of the major ERP systems currently available from SAP; IFS; Dynamics; JD Edwards; etc. you can be sure that ideal solution is realised.

Whilst Bespoke development may be view as a luxury or unnecessary expanse, in almost all applications a real ROI can be demonstrated within a short period. One major benefit of bespoke development is, under most circumstances the solutions delivered are license independent thus significantly reducing your TCO.

 

Some examples of custom developments worked on by our team include:

CTI: Computer Telephony Interface, by integrating you telephone system* with your ERP a whole host of benefits are open to you. Dial a contact straight from the screen; pop-up a contacts details on an inbound call; attach a copy of the call recording to the contact record; automatically route calls based on the inbound calling number; transfer the contact details along with the call. These are just some of the benefits of CTI.

 

Custom screens: If the functionality you require simply is not achievable within your current ERP system, IF can create brand new screens driven directly from the underlying data source, screens can even be designed to mimic current look and feel. This gives you the ability to extend usability far beyond limitations whilst retaining profile and security configurations and continuing to utilise current business processes and workflows.

 

Systems Integration: You may require to ingests or output data from a 3rd party supplier or customer. IF can create a server application that translates and communicates between the two systems allowing you to seamlessly perform business processes within your existing ERP.

 

Cross-platform Integration: Many organisations utilise products from multiple vendors, whilst this has the benefit of providing the right tool for the job it can have a detrimental effect on productivity. The most abundantly observed example of the is double input. Administrators and operators often must re-key information between the various products. Whilst re-keying represents the obvious example of unnecessary duplication of effort, other examples include: Collaboration between external organisations; aggregation of information from multiple vendors; quotation panel selection; website interactivity, to name but few.

 

EDI: Electronic Data Interchange, whilst Systems and Cross-platform Integration are examples of EDI. There are more and more standardised EDI schemas appearing all the time. Often EDI is driven by demand from a specific customer or vendor, however IF can assist in working between parties to agree, develop and deploy a chosen EDI solution. IF can provide interfaces between your Current ERP and a third-party EDI system from suppliers and customers. Beyond that IF have experience in implementing custom EDI’s from the ground up.
