Every high-growth business grapples with decisions around the best business system to manage its expanding operations. Proper planning of an integrated business management software system often takes a back seat to short-term revenue acceleration goals.

As a consequence, various disparate applications are installed at different points in time in various functional areas, resulting in business process inefficiencies and software integration challenges.

For Profitable Growth

Every high-growth business grapples with decisions around the best business system to manage its expanding operations. Proper planning of an integrated business management software system often takes a back seat to short-term revenue acceleration goals. As a consequence, various disparate applications are installed at different points in time in various functional areas, resulting in business process inefficiencies and software integration challenges. But how did these problems arise in the first place, and how can they be avoided?

Businesses that evolve their systems over time in this manner can find themselves with a poorly planned architecture that handles short-term tactical needs sub-optimally while holding the company back from scaling efficiently over the long term. This tangled web of siloed business software systems, often referred to as a “software hairball”, inhibits flexibility, productivity, and ultimately slows down the company’s ability to grow.

Successfully integrated business software suites are transforming how companies run, and enabling them to transcend growing pains that previously were holding them back from taking their business to the next level of profitable growth.

Our Proven Four Step Methodology

As your business grows there comes a point where the technology you are relying on can no longer handle what you need it to do. At this stage, you may, therefore, be thinking about the different options available. Whether to go for an off the shelf product or if you need something that is tailored exactly to your business. Although the thought of custom software development may sound a little daunting, it doesn’t have to be. By choosing the right collaborative partner and working closely with them you can achieve an excellent solution that works exactly the way you need it to.

With more than twenty years’ experience partnering organisations to deploy digital initiatives, Arrk continues to lead the way in helping companies develop digital platforms that drive transformative business change. Our extensive experience enables us to take pragmatic approach, whether you are looking to introduce a tactical solution into your business or implement strategic business change. Our user first approach centres our delivery methodology, which is a developed, proven and refined approach to solving complex business and technology problems, FAST.

Our broad, flexible methodology and toolset are capable of being adapted and shaped for a wide range of different customer needs, whilst retaining at their heart a set of consistent, fundamental core principles.

We can help organisations address strategic change through our trade marked delivery pillars:

Discover & Design

Using our EmbArrk™ discovery methodology we comprehensively define and document the business requirements, which are then used as our guideline to scope and shape the required customer solution.

Build

With our Agile@Arrk™ development methodology, we combine flexible software engineering practices and expertise to deliver as fast as possible using our distributed development teams.

Release

Our software deployment services reduce the release time and makes the process error free. During this phase we consider not only the installation and configuration but also the environment we are deploying to.

Support & Evolve

Maintenance and evolving development ensures solutions are kept healthy to deal with changing technical and business environment and fines tunes all elements to improve system performance and to address vulnerabilities.

A Modular Approach Offering Flexibility and Scalability

Rather than building one monolithic application, we create individual components which utilise common libraries and communicate with each other using APIs. This ensures each component can be independently scaled, reduces code complexity and promotes a considered development path.

From the outset we plan for change and factor adaptability into the core platforms we construct. We typically prefer to create tools and interfaces which let user(s) internally manage business logic, configuration, workflows and content. APIs are defined and exposed internally and externally (with appropriate permissions) so that third parties can interface and integrate as required.

We provide real value as soon as possible by breaking up large projects into multiple stages. Each stage brings tangible benefits so that value can be realised by the users and stakeholders. This avoids the riskier “all or nothing” approach and allows for adjustments and flexibility in the overall platform strategy.
