The Solus Partnership has chosen the Softworld spring exhibitions to unveil its service capability and announce its founding members and new clients.
Founded in 2004 by HR and accounting solutions and services companies, Solus adopts a best-of-breed approach to delivering complementary HR, payroll, financials, e-learning and e-recruitment solutions coupled with consultancy, networking and infrastructure services to give organisations a one-stop shop for their business application needs.
The consortium was formed in response to a growing market demand to enable organisations to select key business solutions from a single source and benefit from the resulting economies of scale.
Solus underpins its business proposition with a solid business charter that trademarks its members’ service levels, offers a product development roadmap, project management methodology and technology platform, and incorporates a mission statement and goals.
Consortium members are committed to embracing Microsoft’s .net development platform. Each member also positively embraces an ASP deployment model and will further develop integrated propositions to deliver hosted services to customers.
New members need to satisfy the demands of the charter and commit to Solus’s service levels and software development standards.
Founding Solus members are Infosupport, PS Financials, e-Learning WMB and ESG Technical Services.
“It can be a daunting task for any organisation to embark on a project to adopt or replace key HR, payroll or accounting solutions,” says John O’Neill, managing director of Infosupport. “Simply differentiating between suppliers is a minefield and the problem is further exacerbated if you are looking for integrated business solutions.”
