Steam Software is an Innoware Group company specializing in modular, browser-based software tools called "Business Builder" to drive business improvement. We quantify this with you as agreed ROI (return on investment) improvements within a timeframe to drive improved levels of free cash in your business.
Steam's best of breed systems are underpinned by business development and process management consultancy as required. In this way tangible business improvement and a fast ROI can be delivered: we do not just sell you a system and leave you to get on with it. You would expect system implementations to be managed by Steam staff and delivered in every case to a detailed specification, using proven process methodologies such as Prince 2 or Six Sigma if appropriate.
As the author and primary vendor of Business Builder the Company is ideally suited to deliver either SaaS (out of the box) solutions to specific problems or more custom solutions dependent upon business need. Business Builder ITG is the flagship product, delivering a cost effective single view of multiple legacy databases with detailed graphical analysis but without the need for expensive data migration to a new system. This makes your business performance information available in one place, accessed from anywhere in an easily understandable format.
The business is profitable and has tripled in size since 2007. It is forecast to double again in the financial year 2010 - 2011. Performance has been driven by a strategy of being the vendor of choice in specific mature vertical markets, where complex business growth issues exist and it is accepted that an off the shelf MIS system may not be appropriate. This approach typically drives return on the investment, or value for the client, by combining into a single solution Business Builder modules including a strong industry specific CRM core, with in depth business development understanding and Innoware’s custom writing resource as and if required.
Depending on the problem, this value improvement can been realised in reduced operating costs from process automation or improvement, improved stock turnrounds, better staff performance to KPI’s, or increased sales of a better quality.
Clients past and present include Kemira Oy of Finland, Continental Tyres, WH Smith, Toni&Guy and local Government, although most sales are to the SME marketplace in our chosen market sectors.
