  PRACTICE AREAS  

Information Technology (IT) Practice

  Supply Chain Consulting  

The objective of our IT Practice is to offer our clients programming and systems integration services for their IT needs.  Some of the services we offer as part of our IT Practice include:

  • Systems Integration - 4SIGHT resources have experience integrating commercial software applications with client-side legacy HOST applications so that information can be shared by mission-critical applications such as ERP, CRM, OMS, WMS, TMS, material handling systems, and also visibility applications that provide executive information portals.  Our resources have helped clients design, build and deliver “custom” integration platforms between legacy applications and leading best-of-breed SCE solutions.  Our resources have developed these integration layers through various development platforms, some of which include RPG, .Net, Java, WebServices, ASP.NET, IIS, Visual Studio, C#, and others.

  • Business Process Management Suite (BPM) Integration – A few of our resources have integrated best-of-breed Supply Chain Software solutions with some of the leading BPM suites.  We offer skilled Business Analysts and Integration Specialists that can assist with your BPM deployments.  We not only focus on the technology, but we also focus on the continuous process improvement as part of your business strategy.  4SIGHT's BPM integration specialists help unite business strategists and technologists together with a methodical approach, integration experience, integration strategies and shared set of tools to accomplish common goals.  Some of the BPM applications we’ve worked with include Software AG (formerly WebMethods), TIBCO, IBM’s WebSphere, Microsoft BizTalk Server, Gentran from Sterling Commerce, SAP’s Netweaver, and Oracle’s SOA & BPA suites.
 
  • Material Handling Equipment Integration (MHE) – AS/RS, Conveyors, Carousels, Tilt-Tray Sorters, Palletizers, Robotics – have gained considerable momentum over the last decade, improving the speed and accuracy of operations by automating a broad range of business processes.  Our resources can help your business with MHE integration strategies and specifications, whether it’s point-to-point – Conveyor to WMS – or tiered, – AS/RS to WCS to WMS.
 
  • Integration RoadMap – Software Vendors today offer their own integration capabilities to connect their product suite of applications with your legacy HOST systems.  However, the majority of work to integrate their applications within YOUR enterprise is YOUR responsibility.  They give you the tools to get the job done, but that's where they stop.  The responsibility is yours to figure out how to integrate their point solutions with potentially dozens of disparate applications on your end. From years of integration experience, and countless deployments integrating disparate applications, 4SIGHT has developed a methodology to assist clients with their integration project needs.  Our Integration RoadMap addresses the Business Architecture and Systems Architecture needs prior to interface development.  Steps in our process include collecting interface file formats, identifying all associated transaction sets, reviewing current-state architecture, document future-state architecture, create WBS of interfaces & associated transaction sets, create use-case flows and sequencing for associated business transactions, and producing estimates for completion of interface designs. 
     
  • Custom Programming – From years of integration experience, we also offer resources that can provide custom programming to our clients.  4SIGHT resources have augmented client’s IT staff by offering programming assistance either ad-hoc, or through large custom programming initiatives.  We offer resources that have experience programming in RPG, .Net, Java, WebServices, XML, ASP.NET, IIS, Visual Studio, C#, C++, PowerBuilder, Crystal Reports, COGNOS, and others.
 
  • Vocollect Systems Integrators 4SIGHT is currently in the process of becoming a certified Vocollect integration partner.  The process got kicked off in February 15th, 2010.  We are 50% of the way there and have already achieved the status of Vocollect Implementation Professionals. We are now focusing on the other half, the Development Certification, to become certified Vocollect Systems Integrators. As part of this certification process we are building out our integration capabilities with Vocollect’s Voice-Directed Distribution and Voice-Link, giving you real-time, voice-enabled communication with most voice-capable applications.
 
  • RFID Assessment / Integration – Today the constraint with real-time data capture is not technology.  Over the last few decades we’ve seen significant advances with Automatic Identification and Data Capture (AIDC), and many clients/prospects want to know if RFID makes sense for them.  As part of our RFID integration offering, we help clients/prospects learn the basics of an RFID deployment ranging from tags, to readers, to the Electronic Product Code (EPC), to the Uniform Code Council (UCC), to the EPC Network.  There have been some notable innovations in RFID, so we can help you determine if RFID is right for you, and if you’re even ready for RFID.  There are Process questions, Technology questions, and Hardware & Software questions we help answer to give you the big picture and how it all ‘fits’ together.  We’ll help give you an understanding of Investments costs and Recurring costs and identify what are some of the potential benefits to deploying RFID in your operations, if any.
