The machine does not isolate man from the great problems of nature but plunges him more deeply into them.—Antoine Saint-Exupéry; Wind, Sand, and Stars; 1939.

Some of Our Areas of Expertise

ERP Systems

Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Systems are business management systems that incorporate all aspects of the business, including planning, manufacturing, inventory control, sales, and marketing. Our experience includes developing and implementing custom ERP software applications from start to finish, specifically:

  • Initial needs assessment
  • Process modeling
  • Systems integration
  • Data migration
  • Deployment
  • Documentation
  • User training
  • Ongoing customer support.

Warehouse/Inventory Management Systems

Systems that automate and streamline inventory control, sometimes known as Warehouse Management Systems (WMS) or Warehouse Inventory Management Systems (WIMS), can be indispensible in the workings of an effective supply chain. A WMS is often implemented as a module of a larger ERP system, and if properly designed can give a manufacturor a significant competitive edge over rivals in the marketplace. We are familiar with all aspects of WMS design, including:

  • Real-time inventory control using handheld wireless devices
  • Automated warehouse operations based on management criteria
  • Warehouse activity logging and reporting
  • Inventory tracking and reporting
  • Flexible location systems
  • Cycle counts
  • Synchronization of warehouse operations with manufacturing activity
  • Bar code scanning and label printing functionality

Laboratory Information Management Systems

Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS) are information systems designed specifically to manage the information resources of an analytical laboratory, keeping track of everything from laboratory samples and instruments to work flow, personnel, and invoicing. If an off-the-shelf LIMS solution will not work for you, we can design a system specific to your laboratory’s requirements. Our LIMS designs have featured:

  • Data entry through manual entry and electronic capture
  • Data organization and analysis
  • Data visualization
  • Customizable reporting
  • Instrumentation interfacing

Key Enterprise-Level Architectures We Employ


Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE) is a set of related specifications and documentation that define an enterprise-level computing architecture using the Java platform. Core components of J2EE are Enterprise JavaBeans (EJB), JavaServer Pages (JSP) and Java servlets and a host of interfaces—including JDBC, JNDI, JMS, and JTA—for linking to the information resources of an enterprise. Dedicated to enterprise software development, this architecture simplifies the development of component-based multitier applications and Web services. Using J2EE, applications that are portable, scalable, and interoperable can be built easily.


The Microsoft .NET framework is a software development platform designed to enable rapid application development, platform independence, and network transparency. An environment for building, deploying, and running Web Services and other applications, .NET includes many technologies that can accelerate the development of Internet and intranet applications.
