how little time needs to be saved on a small but repetitive
task to generate significant savings for a business. Selecting
the right software package for your business can repay the
costs in a very short timeframe, and soon start translating
directly into profitability.
One of our clients had a system
that took around 50 seconds to do a lookup, and this was done
on average 20 times a day. The replacement system took just
2 seconds to do the same task – a saving of 48 seconds,
or 16 minutes a day, or nearly 70 hours a year. At £10
per hour, that’s over £700 a year.
Along with similar savings
in other parts of the system, and new features that gave better
information about the business, the system paid for itself
in less than 3 months.
And don’t ignore the
fact that your employees now have more time to be concentrating
on other more worthwhile activities.
Another important aspect of
our bespoke systems is that your code becomes your property.
Some companies view this as their IPR, meaning that you are
tied to them indefinitely for upgrades and support. Blackdown
Systems delivers the code, design documentation, technical
specifications and test code to you at the end of the project.
You are free to take the entire project to another provider,
or even to make ongoing enhancements in-house if this is your
Support and Training
Blackdown Systems doesn’t
simply deliver your system and walk away. We offer support
contracts tailored to meet your needs. There is generally
a higher degree of support required for the initial period
after the solution is rolled out, tapering off thereafter.
We also provide training on
any systems that we deliver, and again the scope of this training
will be tailored to the solution that has been provided.
Blackdown Systems operates
a web based fault tracking system that you can access to log
and monitor issues through.
