    Targeted, High-Value Apps in the Context of an End-to-End ERP Vision

    posted on 15-01-2014 05:39 by Luciano Cunha

    In addition to solution suites to support certain industries, systems integration, or business process management, To-Increase creates apps, targeted solutions that address critical business issues. When we do this, we always maintain the end-to-end context of the entire operation and a full-fledged ERP infrastructure that customers can evolve and complete at their own pace. Companies are not compelled to invest in solution features they do not need, and neither will we leave them stranded with stand-alone solutions that cannot connect within the framework of a comprehensive business management system. We enable them to make use of the functionality at the time it is of value for them, and they can add to it when they need more. Read the full story
