System & EDI consulting at menten GmbH
The services delivered by menten cover three major areas: Infrastructure services, services catering to i‑effect as well as individual software development not related to i‑effect®.
This service allows small and mid-sized companies to effectively outsource their entire IT department (hardware and software selection, installation and maintenance, client and server support, etc.) to menten. We tend to IT and communication infrastructures and provide assistance with daily system administration and support tasks.
Services for i‑effect®
Services provided for menten’s i‑effect® core product include customer EDI consulting, EDI implementation, the setup of EDI mappings and special EDI training sessions.
The initial goal of EDI consulting is to analyze existing documentation and partner constellations to identify the solution that best supports the customer’s communication with partners. The next step is EDI implementation, i.e. the complete design and implementation of electronic business processes for data exchange: product installation, customer-specific configuration, connection of the partners, complete automation and process control.
The EDI mapping process is about creating individual assignments between international standards and/or databases or adapting them to the specifications agreed with partners. menten’s EDI training sessions make future users familiar with the daily use of i‑effect® functions and the application. Training sessions, such as e.g. for the graphical mapper, can be held on site at the customer or on menten’s business premises. The number of participants is flexible.
Individual Software Development Beyond i‑effect®
This service provides customer-specific programming that cannot be implemented using i‑effect®. menten develops customer-specific client/server applications for IBM Power Systems under IBM i (Java, PHP, ILE-RPG, RPG, CL, C, shell scripts) according to detailed specifications (performance and technical specifications). We design and create databases, applications and websites to accommodate new and existing business logic.
We advise you strategically and determine the prerequisites and requirements on the basis of available documentation and partner constellations in order to find the best solution for your company.
We take over the complete setup and implementation of your electronic business processes for data exchange: product installation, customer-specific configuration, partner-side connection, complete automation and control of the processes.
We train you and your employees in the daily use of the i‑effect® functions and the application. The training e.g. for the graphic mapper is possible both at your company and the Menten offices with variable number of participants.
We create individual projects with international standards and/or databases and adapt them to the specifications agreed upon with your partners.
We support you in the daily tasks of system administration and look after your IT and communication infrastructures.
