A number of our, let's say "older" team members, come from engineering backgrounds where quality and efficiency were goals that had to be delivered in their respective industries. Marrying these two objectives together can often be like a "tug of war". We have team members that immersed themselves in Kaizen methodologies and Just In Time (JIT) systems for utilization in large industrial manufacturing companies. Saving 5 seconds off the production time of a die-cast aluminum heat sink was important.
Bottom line savings was the God. Cycle time reduction was the gift given to that God every day.
Then we have the Quality Assurance folks on the other side of the equation. Checking that reduction in production cycle time didn't actually cost the manufacturer more money due to a higher proportion of sub-standard parts.
Purchasing - well they wanted to use less expensive materials... but to arrive at the same end quality of product.
Health and safety department - wanted to ensure all of this was done in a safe environment and to see that production cycle time improvements and different material sourcing options didn't cause health hazards in the workplace.
The QA folks, the production team, purchasing department and the health and safety overlords all had varying immediate goals that were their primary concerns.... but they all had the same ultimate end goal.
More quality widgets produced per day in a safe manner, at a lower material cost; translates to more money showing on the bottom line for the company.
The reason we go into this detail is to tell a "back story". This experience is the reason we are so successful and effective at developing new applications and systems.
ISOOSI has team members that have been in the trenches; in big manufacturing businesses, in the auto industry, in the healthcare industry, in pharmaceuticals, electronics, logistics and distribution.
That real world production experience is critical. It enables us as a team to see the big picture.
Our Application Development team frequently gets called into businesses and organizations to do Information System Audits as part of a discovery phase protocol. Our goal is to analyze the current status, identify improvements, make recommendations and provide "Proof of Concept" models to show the end results and benefits of our recommendations.
We go into businesses and see systems. We see information flow. We see communication bottlenecks, we see opportunities for improvement, we see potential problems, we look at data security and integrity.... we look at the big picture while honing in on what the client wants to see: Improvements.
Information system and application improvements that result in enhanced information flow, increased productivity, more effective communications and a boost to their bottom line.
The ISOOSI Application Development team has built full-scale world-class business solutions from concept through to completion, all in-house. Many of our applications are in use today at national high street banks, manufacturing businesses, service / retail businesses, hospitals and clinics, charitable organizations and more.
We have also worked on numerous projects, building and integrating application systems with 3rd party ERP, CRM and SCM solutions. We've integrated systems with applications like SAP, Salesforce, MS Dynamics, Sage CRM, SugarCRM, WebLink Chamber of Commerce Software and many more.
If you feel constrained by your current information systems or just feel there must be a better way for your business processes and information flow to work, then we can almost certainly guarantee that we can help. From online businesses with multiple databases and API connections to manufacturing plants with custom in-house production tracking systems, to retail stores using the very latest mobile-enabled POS systems. Time and again we've been able to help businesses break free of the process constraints weighing them down.
