Business Information Systems
Design. Implementation. Support.
The Blue Sun approach to Business Information Systems offers your business a range of packages specifically designed to add immediate value to your business recognising the need for genuine global access, operational simplicity and true low cost. We offer cloud-based solutions freeing your business from unnecessary hardware purchases, installations and on-going maintenance. At your option we will either train your IT crew or we’ll completely take over operation and maintenance enabling your team to concentrate business targets.
- Global Collaboration. Our Global Collaboration package will transform your business providing a globally-accessible, fully-secure workspace for your distributed and mobile workforce to collaborate, communicate and archive institutional knowledge.
- Business Instrumentation. Manage your business by measuring its performance. This package provides you and your business leaders with insight into the performance of your business. We work with you to determine your critical business performance data and then develop clear, real-time instrumentation.
- Robust Access. A fully global workforce requires robust internet access. Publicly available wireless internet points may not always provide secure access. Some countries and territories provide unreliable internet access. The Robust Access package solves both of these problems providing secure, robust internet access for your mobile team.
- Reliable Email. While our Global Collaboration package drastically reduces email traffic as a principle means of communication, email is still an important communication tool. The Reliable Email package offers a highly reliable, secure email solution for desktops (Windows, Mac and Linux), mobile (iPhone and Blackberry), and internet (any modern web browser).
- Web Presence. We design and implement a high quality web presence for your business. We work with you and your team to determine the design and content of the site and then build your website using a content management system to allow on-going maintenance.
- Integrated Management. Allow us to take charge of the operation and maintenance of your Blue Sun Business Information Systems. The Integrated Management package provides your team with a single, always-on helpdesk to raise issues and support items with our support crew.
Our project management professionals join your team to provide your projects with project management leadership and drive to successfully deliver the results you need. We have successfully completed projects of all types with project teams of all types and have particular expertise in managing projects with teams distributed across timezones and cultures.
We offer four types of packages to meet the project management needs of your organisation:
- Training. We offer short courses, workshops and intense training programs covering all aspects of project management from project initiation through to project close. We have courses aimed at project managers and project teams as well as other stakeholders.
- Guidance. When you have a project manager already in place, we are able to provide guidance and support. We can fill a gap in your current capabilities or provide additional strength where necessary. Many customers find this a natural hands-on follow on from one of our training programs.
- Turn-key. This package has us run your project for you so that your team can concentrate fully on execution. We provide cradle-to-grave robust project planning, executing, monitor and reporting.
- Rescue. For broken projects that need resetting on the right course. We’ll embed ourselves into your project team to get your project back to good health and then guide your team for as long as required to ensure success.
