Bespoke solutions

An off the shelf package doesn't quite provide everything you need? 

You may have invested time and effort looking for an off the shelf package and found that there isn't really one out there that quite fits the bill. You’re not alone - we often find that this is the case, when we talk to prospective clients.

Having taken a good look at some off the shelf systems that are out there on the market, you come to the realisation that only parts of would fit what you do and there are other elements that you’d be paying for that simply wouldn't be used within our organisation, while there are other key elements that are missing completely.

Considering a bespoke system could be the right option for you. If so, please contact us and let us help you plot a cost effective route to the system of your dreams.

Perhaps the way you're working may not be as efficient as it could be?

Have you been 'making do' with the way you have to do things? Are your staff re-keying data from one source to another – even if only from emails into your order processing system? Are you working manually or working from (hand-annotated) printouts? Are your spreadsheets getting more and more complicated and do you dread something happening to the person who looks after them for you?

To a larger or lesser extent, we all live within organisations that are the product of “making it up as we go along” - which is fine, except it is also sadly true that temporary things have a habit of becoming permanent. Then they get built upon with other temporary fixes, which themselves become permanent.

The chances are you’re not a specialist in process re-engineering and workflow optimisation but then again you don’t need to be to know that there’s a lot of room for improvement – cost reduction, error elimination, speed of operation and improvement in reporting.

The good news is, you are exactly the type of client we have the greatest success working with – we can help you transform your organisation’s systems, unlocking efficiencies, empowering your staff, and delivering improved customer service. Please contact us to discuss how we might be able to help.

Using various services, here, there and everywhere can often be a bit messy - having things fit together much more seamlessly in the one system can make life so much easier.

We're all human, things can easily be missed when you're trusting that people will remember to take action at the right time when using their own methods. Using this as an example, including a notifications module for example might be a great addition within the solution you're looking for.

You may need to add more control to your processes. Having a permissions structure could help.

The options really are endless, it's just a case of taking the time to really focus on how a system could work for you and your business, encouraging change and allowing innovation.

A modular approach tailored just for you

Bespoke systems don’t have to start with a completely blank piece of paper. Because of our extensive experience of creating systems for clients over the years, we have a pre-developed set of modules which can be used as foundation stones for building unique, bespoke systems. We also make use of third party services where applicable – why reinvent the wheel when you don’t have to?

However, if you have more specific needs, we can build elements specifically to meet your requirements, bespoke to you.

It's about fitting it all together in the right way to suit your organisation, your processes and your users.

So, if you already have an idea of what the foundations of your system need to include from the offset, built in permissions for example, an email module, a full accounting suite, or a content management system (CMS), contact us to discuss getting your new system off to a flying start.

Integration & Data Sharing

If you need an API to connect to an existing system that still has an important part to play within your organisation’s infrastructure, or multiple API's for multiple systems for that matter - we can help with that too.

Our systems are often required to interface or integrate with other associated systems & hardware, such as specialist scanners, labelling machines, accounting systems and more.

On the other hand, if you are planning on returning an old system and replacing it with a new one, we also provide extensive data conversion facilities, allowing your data to be migrated to your new system, making it up to date and fit for use from the moment you start using it.

Here at Strategic Software Solutions, we have years of experience in customising data and updating processing logic to provide a system that works just the way you need it to.

Our aim is to build the exact, right solution for you - we would love to work with you and hear about your potential project or ideas. Please contact us today.
