Is cost efficiency on your organization’s agenda? If so, you’re not alone. A survey of Fortune 1000 companies revealed that 76 percent of respondents expect their companies to reduce costs over the next 24 months.

Driving down costs supports growth, delivers significant competitive advantage and helps companies stay the course should demand decline. While cost management is a long-time focus for business health, the flipside is that there’s often a cost to pay for reducing costs. Some strategies may be more costly in the long run or result in a decline in service levels.

Recognizing the need for flexible delivery options that help organizations achieve cost management goals without compromising quality, Avaap established the Center of Excellence (ACE) in 2007. Headquartered in Chennai, India, ACE performs all types of Infor Lawson S3 projects from installation to support as well as developing dashboards and turnkey solutions such as Avaap Test Automation and Avaap Security Dashboard, designed to deliver value to organizations that rely on Infor Lawson.

A “follow the sun”  service model provides around-the-clock support for European and EMEA operations, enabling clients to take advantage of anywhere, anytime service and faster time to value. Avaap clients benefit from world-class capabilities and ability to leverage local labor rates for superior cost-effectiveness.

“Avaap’s Center of Excellence helps organizations achieve high levels of service at a cost-effective price point,” said Saravana Babu, Avaap product and services manager. “Our senior members started their careers at Lawson in 2005 and bring decades of technical and functional application experience and subject matter expertise to our client engagements.”

The ACE team has extensive upgrade experience and knowledge on Lawson version 8.x, 9.x, 10.x as well as Landmark environments in Windows and AIX operating systems; the team can also migrate existing customizations in 4GL as well as screens to 10.x and flows to IPA while upgrading the Infor Lawson System. Additionally, the ACE team has collectively been involved in 6+ Infor Lawson version 10 upgrades. Other recent successes include developing a custom solution to help managers and leaders analyze salary details and perform changes; automating employee expense data entry and approval processes for a leading pediatric hospital in the U.S. and completing a complex Infor Lawson upgrade for a chain of fast-food restaurants.
