Enterprise Solutions, commonly known as ERP solutions (Enterprise Resource Planning), have existed for over 30 years. Yet, many organizations find themselves with fragmented information, disparate and obsolete systems and a reliance on external unsecured spreadsheets to run their business.
Today, leading vendors like Microsoft deliver easy-to-use, flexible and modern solutions so that organizations can once and for all put these challenges behind them and focus on operating and growing their business with the confidence that they are supported by a solution that will enable them for many many years.

Today, organizations in many industries compete with similar products and use comparable technology. The ability to differentiate from the competition rests in many cases with the ability to execute high performance business processes with the maximum efficiency and effectiveness, making the smartest business decisions possible.
Business Intelligence provides organizations with information when they need it and in the right format, enabling better decision making. From Decision Support Systems with Dashboards and Analytics to Corporate Performance Management, Business Intelligence delivers insight into an organization’s business.
ThinkMax believes that to achieve high performance business processes, an organization must clearly identify how it will measure its performance and then make this information available to all. Business Intelligence should be accessible to all. Today’s tools are easy to use which means that people spend less time looking for information and the IT staff spends less time supporting them.

Business Process Improvement
To remain competitive, organizations must continue to innovate and introduce new products and services and they must also align and improve their business processes. It is quite common for business process improvements to be addressed with new information technology. Unfortunately, many information technology implementation projects fail to capture the benefits of improved business processes. While these projects are justified and initiated with the right intent, they are commonly managed as an information technology project and fail to keep the focus on the business process improvement benefits. In other words, the focus is more on the technology than on the business process.
This is why, with our MethodMax approach, we start all projects by first identifying the key drivers and the key areas of improvement, defined as metrics so that the benefits can be measured. This approach elevates the importance of achieving the benefits and elevates the focus on improving the business processes.
Our approach and our team’s experience ensure that the focus on improving the business processes will not be lost. Our consultants leverage their experience in industry and in consulting to assist organizations in streamlining processes in Financial Management, Supply Chain Management, Customer Relationship Management and Manufacturing.
