the last seven percent?

Deacom builds the last seven percent of requirements into its base code to handle all unique requirements through a single software solution, eliminate the cost of customizations, and increase business efficiency.

Deacom customer - California Custom Fruits & Flavors



Customer Insights

Jim Fragnoli, CFO of California Custom Fruits & Flavors, speaks to the reasons why Deacom does not customize its ERP software and instead focuses on developing enhancements that meets the business needs of all its customers.

No duplicated code means rapid new development.

Traditional ERP software systems have multiple applications within their ERP "suite" that span the business logic and user interface layers within their technology. This results in duplicated code for their business logic and slows future developments. As changes to logic need to be developed and tested in multiple interfaces, there is a higher likelihood for inconsistent user experiences across the application. With DEACOM's centralized business rules we can rapidly push out new features and functions in the ERP software while providing a consistent user experience across all applications.

Adaptability to keep pace with new technology.

With thin user interfaces and centralized business rules, DEACOM ERP software is well suited to continue to evolve with the rapid pace of technology growth. The traditional ERP offering is going to be slower to react because of the lack of centralized business logic and the thick user interface that need to be developed as a result. Who knows where technology will be in the future - the only certainty is that DEACOM will continue to adapt and evolve rapidly.

Scalable ERP software for all sizes of companies.

System performance starts with a strong foundation. Systems that are bolted together require a data footprint that spans multiple systems, with multiple bridges. Deacom's single-system approach has provided tremendous performance advantages by allowing the data footprint to be reduced to its lowest possible level. The small data footprint and single-system strategy drives system performance and allows DEACOM to handle larger data sets to scale with companies as they grow.

Deacom's Kaizen Development Philosophy

How the Kaizen philosophy benefits customers.

Deacom operates under the Kaizen philosophy, committing to continuous enhancements and improvements to the ERP software. Staying true to this renowned Japanese approach to management, Deacom has created a development methodology that promotes gradual and constant improvements. As new features are added to the system, they are simultaneously made available to the entire customer base. This enables companies to take advantage of new DEACOM ERP features faster than traditional ERP platforms. Like the International Olympic motto of "Faster, Higher, Stronger", Deacom uses this learning cycle to create a culture of gradual and constant improvement to get better every day.
