Systems Integration

You did it! You finally bit the bullet and contracted a custom software developer to build a custom application for your business. It has automated your workflow, increased process efficiency, and is saving you time and money. But now you see that if it just had an extra 'bell' here and a 'whistle' there, you could be saving even more. You decide to contact your developer, but he’s working on a big project and doesn’t have time. So you say, “that’s OK, I’ll just get the code and be on my way to another developer.”  But then he says, “no you won’t, because you don’t own the code." Hopefully, you’re reading this article before that happens to you.
In any business, time is money, with the upshot being that labor is money. Nearly every business has looked for ways to save money by reducing the amount of labor required to perform a task. Manufacturing companies have turned this into an art form through a variety of industrial engineering activities such as operations management, ergonomics, system simulations, and ongoing performance analysis of each step in the manufacture of a part. By reducing the time to perform each action, significant cost savings can be realized across an organization. This concept can also be applied to business operations, and the advancements in computing hardware and software have accelerated the adoption of process automation in the office, not just on the factory floor.
No one gets into business with plans to stay the same, year after year. Those goals you’ve been working toward — higher profits, more or better clients, more time for things that matter, stronger reputation — none of it can happen if you can’t increase your productivity, reduce waste, fine-tune processes and metrics, and adapt to evolving market demands. Whether you’re leading a humble startup, have reached profitability with a solid cadre of loyal customers, or managed to mushroom into a high-powered enterprise, sustainable growth will hinge on your ability to scale: that’s what systems integration can do for you.

Since Inverse-Square was founded, we have worked hard to perfect our craft for the benefit of our clients. To ensure transparency, we communicate the progress of each project with weekly reports and updates. Based on our experience and the feedback we have received, we have compiled a list of frequently asked questions (FAQs)...

In most businesses, certain processes are repeatable - everyday it's the same tasks and the same check list being checked off. It may seem like you have the procedures down pat, but how can you be so sure? You've been doing the same for so long, how do you know if that same old way, is the best way? Not executing business processes in the most efficient way means you could be losing out on valuable time; and you know what they say, "time is money". That's why it is well worth it to have someone else take a look at them for you. Review these five tips to see where you might be going wrong, and where you can go right:
There's a saying we like to kick around the office, "always write code like the person maintaining it after you is a homicidal psychopath that knows where you live." Basically, it means write clean code. There are many reasons writing clean code is important, but Technical Debt is probably at the top of that list. While Technical Debt is a topic that is not widely known outside of the software development industry, it's one that can have far reaching effects. 
Imagine your business processes streamlined, no more paper forms, no more repetitive and mindless data entry. Imagine business processes where tracking and notifications occur automatically and free of errors. Now imagine how much time and resources that would save. We can make those savings a reality with Process Automation.

Technological changes move at a lightning's pace; that includes the coding languages we write in and the tools we use to develop software. We know that training is key to staying up to date in the fast paced world of technological development. Our Developers train...

Lose weight and save more money; if you asked someone to name three things that they want, you can bet that one, if not both of these would be on the list. It's pretty much what we did for SANESolution.
