ERP Integrations

 

In today’s connected world, the term integration means a lot more than just connecting systems. For the modern enterprise, integration means orchestrating many systems into value chains, spread across different domains, internal as well as external in the Cloud. This means, integration is no longer a trivial discipline – it is a major challenge.

 

BlueTree’s enterprise resource planning (ERP) consultants’ experience and expertise help organizations to select and implement the solution that best fits their unique requirements. Our experts start by identifying the business processes and systems that need to be integrated, with an eye on delivering an optimal user experience. Our services include

 

  • Assessment of your ERP integration strategy and landscape
  • Developing a blueprint for a future-proof ERP integration strategy for your enterprise. 
  • Assistance by experienced ERP integration professionals for your ongoing integration efforts, to help you develop a project-specific integration architecture and to implement the architecture together with your key stakeholders and vendors of choice

Implementation

 

At BlueTree, we have always understood that each organization is unique; each organization has a unique culture and processes that sets them apart. For this reason, we know that no two implementations are the same. Each project must be designed to meet organizational goals, with the resources available.

Our Implementation Consultants have developed a proven approach that delivers implementation success. Our implementation consulting methodology involves piloting different areas of the business system application with your key users, and developing an implementation road-map and end-user training strategies. We understand that every implementation is different, and that each business has separate needs when compared to others. Our implementations follow a customized phased process, allowing our Implementation Consultants to work across enterprise.

Our Implementation Methodology ensures the correct resources are brought in to deploy an enterprise system. Our consultants help organizations select the best method of implementation after helping them analyze their resources, current systems, scope of deployment and management goals.
