Enterprise Resource Planning
Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems integrate internal and external data across your entire business and as such many of the projects could conceivably be referred to as ERP solutions (although the public perception is that ERP solutions are large and expensive!)
ERP systems usually encompass the financial and accounting, manufacturing, sales and operations, customer relationship management and other functions within a business and automate activities within an integrated solution. Their primary purpose is to facilitate the flow of information between all the business functions inside the confines of the organisation and manage the connections to external stakeholders.
There are a wide variety of applications that we have developed for clients, which are responsible for the majority of data processed by their businesses. Two recent examples include JDB Industrial Roofing Limited and Ribeye Limited as both systems encompass the business processes from enquiry to invoice.
We have developed a solution for a national roofing conbtractor that provides an on-line application that enables them to manage their enquiries, pre-contract, contract and post-contract procedures. The system uses information collected for quotations to generate a Bill of Materials (BoM) that can be used to purchase materials, plant and equipment for contracts as well as a project management tool for the contract labour. The system has been integrated into their accounts package (QuickBooks pro 2012) as all purchase orders and sales invoices are generated on the system.

We are currently working on a system for Ribeye Limited - a rigid inflatable boat manufacturer, based in Dartmouth - that will cover the manufacturing process from start to finish and will be integrated with their accounts package (SageLine 50).
Both of these projects represents a new generation of solutions we are developing that use the latest version of our code base. It incorporates a tabbed interface, enabling users to access related data quickly and efficiently and is extremely intuitive to use.
