11/07/14 Developing the EMIR Product family - An Overview of the EMIR Open Day
On Tuesday, Solutions In I.T. were pleased to welcome customers from all over the UK to the annual EMIR Open Day, an event this year held at the Harborough Innovation Centre in Leicestershire.
“There is so much that changes in a business year, it’s important to keep our customers up-to-date with innovations that could immediately benefit them.” Gary Downes, the Managing Director of Solutions In I.T. explains. “We write software that gives our customers, a clearly defined differentiation over their competitors. A product that helps them standardise and streamline the flow of jobs and orders through the office and service centre, ensures early identification where profitability can be improved and reduces the amount of time a person spends collating information for important tasks, such as quoting.”

The purpose of the day is, like Gary suggests, is a time to demonstrate the many changes that the EMIR product goes through as a result of a demanding client base of electro-mechanical engineering companies. EMIR is driven by customers that have a desire to be the best in the industry.

In the afternoon, Development Director John Anderson invited the audience to think further ahead. John adds. “This was one of the rare occasions we get as software developers to invite the customer to download all of their ideas about current business practises and future needs in an open forum. This Blue Sky thinking of our User Group has defined the next generation of EMIR Modules and processing features.”
