TransSys Solutions: Delivering Transformational Outcome through Consultative Approach

CIOReview Team

Businesses today, after implementing new ERP systems, are on the edge when looking for new technology solutions that transform previous economic inefficiencies into a streamlined operation with smoothly flowing processes across the world. As business objectives and market conditions change, companies customize their ERP systems to adapt to increasing demands. This provokes the predicament by adding to the complexity in companies’ ERP landscapes, with pervading effects on multiple business processes, and makes adaptation of ERP further challenging. 

However, companies try monotonously. They spend billions annually on upgrading, maintaining and consolidating existing applications to ensure that they keep up with the business’s needs. 

In most cases, the consultants do custom development and the customer ends up getting an expensive automation solution. Hence, what starts with a transformation exercise results in an automation engagement and the transformation aspect often gets ignored as the organizational niches or uniqueness is lost in this process. 

TransSys Solutions, headquartered in Chennai, aims at the ultimate objective of transformation and consciously incorporates a 'consultative approach' to help customers adopt Cloud solutions effectively and realize their transformational expectations.

“We focus on helping our customers by re-looking at their business processes and realigning them to help customers adopt embedded best practices. In every engagement that we do, we help customers retain their focus on transformation and not automate,” says Prabu Balasubramanyan, Executive Director, TransSys Solutions. 

TransSys has worked with nine Airlines, seven Banking & Financial Services customers and more than five Real Estate industry customers. In a short span of five years, the company has worked with over 75 customers and it has grown to strength of 250 consultants. TransSys has been well recognized by Oracle and is now a Platinum Partner with specializations. Oracle recently awarded the company with 2014 Oracle Excellence Award for Specialized Partner of the Year – EMEA in Applications. 

Design Driven Delivery 

When compared to a market that believes in ADMS (Application Development Maintenance and Support) based on a requirement driven model, TransSys helps customers adopt its ‘Design Driven Delivery’ model. The exponential growth and phenomenal recognition of TransSys can even be attributed to this model. 

Through ‘Design Driven Delivery’, the customers realign their business processes, leverage embedded best practices and shorten the cycle time for implementation significantly. “When it comes to cloud adoption, even the large enterprises today are including cloud as part of their strategy. The typical boutique firms that follow a commoditized approach to implementation on ‘Do-It-Yourself’ models fail to fulfil their transformational objectives. The commoditized approach does not work for large scale enterprise customer. So, we are bringing a consultative approach focused on delivery,” adds Prabu.

The explosive growth of Cloud solutions has largely been based on point solutions than a truly integrated end-to-end solution that covers all aspects of an enterprise so far. TransSys believes that the hybrid model of solution adoption is here to stay and significant number of customers would increasingly adopt Cloud solutions for niche areas while retaining the on-premise model for many operationally critical functions and inward looking functions. 

TransSys understands the customer expectations very well and works with them closely in their cloud adoption for niche solutions in a hybrid model. It also helps allay fears of security and vulnerabilities through effective adoption of technologies such as encryption, single sign-on based authentication models etc.

Enterprise-wide Mobility 

With businesses leaning more on technology, mobility might be one of TransSys’ strongest pursuits. The growing need to capture real time data and the importance of ease of use is driving the need to bring in mobility. Mobility also assumes critical importance in the context of select functions of ERP that are widely utilized by people constantly on the move. TransSys besides being a partner for a leading HCM, ERP and CXM Cloud solutions provider, has built its own mobile enabling platform 'TransMobile' that renders many functions of ERP such as Order Management, CRM, Maintenance Management and Procurement Management besides HCM on iOS and Android devices. Built on the latest Oracle technology - Mobile Application Framework (MAF) and leveraging the BPEL component of the SOA suite, TransMobile intends to deliver better user experience in a secure way, enabling organizations to deploy enterprise-wide mobility solutions. 

As a devoted system integrator, TransSys indulges in its every engagement with the intention to transform and not automate. Its proven methodologies and its focus on some of the niche solutions enable the company to help its customers adopt enterprise solutions successfully.
