It can be tempting to purchase an off the shelf “product” which on face value appears to be a lower cost. Often these systems however, remain underutilised as they are either too complex or limited in functionality in some way. This approach leads to a poor return on investment as users often revert to their old inefficient processes rather than take on new systems that weren’t designed for them. In addition we believe based on our experience and detailed analysis of alternate solutions the cost of customisation using these “legacy” on premise technologies can be significantly higher than with our system platform.
To address the needs of our clients, the constant changes in the market and competitive environment, we work with a range of technology providers to bring you the best possible web based or “cloud” solutions under the Streamline Edge platform. Our core requirements from these vendors include the following:
• For databases more than 2,000,000 users on the platform
• For Web – robust, secure, scalable – proven performance
• More than 10 years in business
• Greater than 99% uptime, wide geographic spread, with disaster recovery and hot backups
• Constantly evolving to meet the needs of a changing market
• Low pain upgrades
• No onsite development required apart from initial security access and training
• Can be fully tailored to deliver maximum value for lower proportional effort
• Accessible from anywhere using a modern web browser and internet connection
Whilst the Streamline platform has thousands of features, our collective strength is in applying, simplifying and tailoring these elements to suit the specific needs of our clients. What’s more we are confident of being able to meet your future needs, even those that you may not yet have even thought of. We are that confident because we trust our vendors to deliver innovative features. We also pioneer new solutions every year, and strongly believe there is no technical challenge that cannot be overcome by our team, where budget permits.
We have strong practical, broad and deep experience as business managers, enabling us to add value to your business, to lighten your load, to enable you to get on with the day to day work whilst we do the hard work of building the system around your needs. We do not employ junior staff. With us you will have direct access to mature “hands-on” professionals who can deliver real value to your business.
We come with a deep understanding of what works, and what doesn’t in a broad range of industry. We are less excited about technology for its own sake, but more interested in empowering staff to do their job with less pain and greater satisfaction, to achieve their passion for the community or cause that they are committed to serve. We have a level of maturity that seeks to reduce the stress of change, to take a strategic long term view rather than be tempted to make short term tactical decisions that give a quick fix, but become impediments to success in the long term.
We are committed to your success; we are passionate about taking businesses to the next level and to help people achieve their full potential. For us, technology should be an enabler, but often due to bad past experiences, staff are resigned to accepting bugs/limitations and a level of frustration with “tools” that should help but often hinder. We challenge this belief early in our engagement by showing staff that technology can enable them to do more, need not have onerous limitations, need not be set in stone, but can be dynamic and adapt to their need as they become more familiar with it.
Engaging us has the potential to transform your business, a bit like employing a personal trainer; you will be become fitter, stronger, more agile, and lighter on your feet. We will challenge your thinking, we will remove obstacles to your success and we will go at a pace your budget and capacity can afford.
