Business Process Meets IT

As Solution Architect, Program or Project Manager, we are the linking pin between business and IT.

We are the linking pin between business and IT. Excited about large, complex projects that require alignment between business & IT in the field of supply chain & shop floor. Translating business requirements into sustainable solutions. Although we focus on business process standardisation and best practice, we challenge the IT solution to its limits to provide automated & efficient solutions.

Creative, quick and not afraid to make our hands dirty to get the job done.

Horizontal integration means connecting to your suppliers and customers to improve the flow of data, information and products. To better align your processes to your customer.

With vertical integration you connect shop floor to top floor, ensuring real-time information throughout the company.

If you do both, you’re best practice. Curious? Give us a call. We focus on integration. Making sure everything fits together, reflects the company vision and is best practice.

When business meets IT, tension rises, and misunderstanding prevails. And projects fail. We operate on the intersection between business and IT. We understand both, speak the language and believe both can do better. Embarking on a major implementation? Or stuck somewhere in the middle? Let us know, we can help. Bring the focus back to the process, take a deep breath and go for it.

Yes you can love both. And we do!

As SAP enthusiasts we have a large experience with SAP implementations (SCM, ECC, MII) in various industries. We focus on standardisation and best practice. Interested in integration with Microsoft to enable business process improvements.

As Microsoft fans we have an extensive knowledge on Microsoft’s productivity tools to help manage our projects in the most efficient way.
