System Integration and Legacy Software Systems Development

YorkApps are proud to offer the development of bespoke systems integration solutions so if your business would benefit from the automated sharing of data between your different departments and disparate software systems then contact York Apps and put the kettle on (coffee, black, no sugar… thanks!).

As businesses have computerised over time this has often been done in incremental stages to solve specific operational issues e.g. a paper-based system becomes a spreadsheet system… a spreadsheet system then becomes an Access database system and so on with improvements and benefits yielded at each stage. However, as the years have gone by many businesses like yours find they have a bunch of these stand alone systems that do the job but nowhere near as efficiently as they might and they haven’t evolved with the business as the business has changed over the years.

Another situation we often see is where systems have been installed for use by different departments (i.e. with different goals and business functions in mind) e.g. Sage Line 50 in accounts, some back stock control system to manage inventory and an online ecommerce system to take orders and perhaps some other legacy systems to boot. These ‘silos’ of automation are justifiable and completely understandable given how the needs of the business have grown and morphed over time but now they only serve to constrain the business and hamper your efforts to ramp up efficiency further and improve profitability. A bit of joined up thinking and systems integration may be the tonic your bottom line needs… and we would like to help.

What is needed is to take a step back and revisit what you are actually trying to do from a business point of view and to translate this into considered and appropriate systems and workflows that effectively support the way you do things today (and tomorrow!) and yield the associated efficiencies and other benefits. The process then of mapping what you have now onto what your business needs can be undertaken and the business case can be made for undertaking a system integration project and / or a bespoke software development system.

York Apps are specialists in systems integration and bespoke software development, we enjoy solving problems and helping businesses like yours leverage their data and know-how to help you get to the next level as painlessly as possible!
