Now that you have decided you want a website or information system, you need to decide what you want to accomplish. Do you simply want to display your company’s information as a resume, or do you want something that will increase productivity? From a software perspective we can build you anything you want. Here are some of the types of systems we build.

Transaction Processing Systems (TPS)

These systems handle the daily transactions of an enterprise, such as sales, receipts, cash deposits, payroll, credit decisions, and the flow of materials in a factory.

A common use case for transaction processing systems (TPS) is in the retail banking sector. Here, a TPS is used to handle daily transactions of customers such as deposits, withdrawals, transfers, and balance inquiries. Each transaction is processed in real-time, ensuring that account balances are always up-to-date and accurate. This real-time processing capability is crucial for banks, as it allows customers to access their funds from ATMs, online banking platforms, or physical branches without any delay. Moreover, the TPS ensures that all transactions are recorded, providing a reliable audit trail for both the bank and its customers, enhancing security and trust in the financial system.

Management Information Systems (MIS)

MIS provide managers with reports and, sometimes, online access to the organization’s current performance and historical records. These systems are primarily used for monitoring and control.

Management Information Systems (MIS) are pivotal in the decision-making process of educational institutions. For instance, a university might employ an MIS to track and analyze student data, including enrollment figures, academic performance, and course completion rates. This system enables administrators to identify trends, such as which courses have the highest demand or the areas where students may need additional support. By leveraging this data, the university can make informed decisions about resource allocation, such as hiring more faculty for popular subjects or offering extra tutoring services. Additionally, an MIS can facilitate strategic planning by providing insights into the long-term academic success rates, helping the institution to adjust its curriculum and policies to better serve the student population and maintain a high standard of education.

Decision Support Systems (DSS)

DSS assist managers in decision-making processes when dealing with problems that are unique and rapidly changing. They are used to evaluate and compare various courses of action.

Decision Support Systems (DSS) are invaluable in healthcare management, particularly in emergency departments (EDs). In this high-pressure environment, a DSS can assist clinicians in making rapid and accurate decisions regarding patient triage, diagnosis, and treatment plans. By integrating patient data, clinical guidelines, and predictive models, the system can provide recommendations on the most critical cases to attend to or suggest the most effective treatment protocols. This not only improves patient outcomes by ensuring timely and appropriate care but also enhances the overall efficiency of the ED by optimizing resource allocation and reducing wait times. Moreover, the DSS can analyze historical data to predict patient influx trends, enabling the ED to prepare adequately for busy periods.

Executive Support Systems (ESS)

These systems help senior managers address strategic issues and long-term trends, both in the firm and in the external environment.

Executive Support Systems (ESS) are particularly beneficial for senior executives in large corporations who need to make strategic decisions. For example, an ESS can be used to consolidate data from various departments such as sales, finance, and operations to provide a comprehensive view of the company’s performance. This holistic perspective enables executives to identify areas of growth, potential risks, and opportunities for cost savings. With an ESS, a CEO can quickly assess the impact of external factors like market trends or regulatory changes on the company’s future and make informed decisions about entering new markets or investing in research and development. The system’s ability to simulate different scenarios also helps executives to forecast long-term effects of their strategic choices, ensuring the company’s competitive edge in the market.

Knowledge Management Systems (KMS)

KMS support processes for acquiring, creating, storing, distributing, and applying knowledge in organizations.

Knowledge Management Systems (KMS) play a crucial role in the consulting industry, where the ability to harness collective expertise and experience can significantly enhance service quality. A consulting firm might use a KMS to capture, organize, and retrieve knowledge from past projects, expert insights, and industry research. This allows consultants to quickly access relevant case studies, best practices, and solutions that can be adapted to current client challenges. By leveraging this accumulated knowledge, consultants can provide more accurate and effective advice, reduce the time spent reinventing solutions, and foster innovation. Furthermore, a KMS facilitates collaboration among consultants, enabling them to share insights and learn from each other’s experiences, thus continuously improving the firm’s knowledge base and competitive advantage.

Customer Relationship Management (CRM)

CRM systems are used to maintain customer contact information, track customer interactions, and segment customers into categories based on their interactions with the business.

Customer Relationship Management (CRM) systems are essential in the e-commerce industry, where understanding and improving customer interactions can drive sales and loyalty. An e-commerce company might use a CRM to track customer purchases, inquiries, and feedback across multiple channels. This data enables the company to personalize marketing efforts, recommend products, and provide targeted promotions that align with individual customer preferences. By analyzing purchase history and customer behavior, the CRM helps in identifying high-value customers and creating loyalty programs to retain them. Additionally, the CRM can streamline customer service processes, ensuring that customer issues are resolved quickly and efficiently, thereby enhancing the overall customer experience and fostering long-term relationships.

Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP)

ERP systems integrate all departments and functions across a company onto a single computer system that can serve all those different departments’ particular needs.

Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems are integral to the manufacturing industry, where coordinating complex production processes is vital for efficiency and profitability. A manufacturing company might implement an ERP to integrate all facets of the operation, from supply chain management to production scheduling and quality control. This centralized system enables real-time visibility into every stage of the production process, allowing for better resource planning and inventory management. By analyzing data from the ERP, managers can identify bottlenecks, forecast production needs, and adjust workflows to meet demand. Additionally, ERP systems facilitate compliance with industry regulations by maintaining detailed records of manufacturing processes and product quality, ensuring that the company adheres to the highest standards.

Supply Chain Management (SCM)

SCM systems manage the flow of products, information, and finances related to a product or service from the acquisition of raw materials to the dedetailsvery to the end consumer.

Supply Chain Management (SCM) systems are vital in the fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) industry, where managing the flow of goods from suppliers to consumers is critical for success. An FMCG company might use an SCM to optimize its supply chain operations, ensuring that products are delivered to retailers and customers efficiently and cost-effectively. The SCM system can track inventory levels, forecast demand, and plan logistics, helping to prevent stockouts or overstocking. By providing real-time data on the movement of goods, the SCM enables the company to respond swiftly to changes in consumer demand or supply chain disruptions. This agility not only improves customer satisfaction by ensuring product availability but also enhances the company’s ability to adapt to market changes, thereby maintaining a competitive edge.

Since you have a good idea about what you want, what about application availability? For a static hosted site, you are just hosting files that are read by the browser. But for processing intensive operations you will need an application server, or cluster of servers. We offer on-prem and cloud solutions to meet your needs.
