SAP User Experience

User dynamics & human interaction with SAP enterprise technology has recently placed itself at the forefront of SAP topics, under the new heading “Run Simple”. From our perspective, SAP interaction has too often presented business users with a myriad of daily operational challenges in a modern enterprise working environment where users are often time constrained by over-complex workflow tasks. We use design thinking to improve your User Experience through tools like SAP Fiori and SAP Screen Personas.

If your organisation needs a quick response to technical change requests or SAP projects then we can react with expertise across all core ERP areas. We have certified consultants that deliver business transformation programmes enabled by SAP applications. The team consists of experienced process and technology practitioners, with skills sets extending into areas including financials, logistics execution, procurement, sales & distribution, solution architecture and SAP programme governance.

SAP Digital Transformation

We have certified SAP consultants that deliver digital transformation programmes enabled by next generation SAP HANA technology.

    COur Company Timeline

    • Where the journey began - 2012

      We were always obsessed with 'user experience' but back then we called it different things. The founders have lived long in the frustration of ERP systems and played a lot with user interfaces whilst trying to educate on carving out the most value from enterprise software.

    • ‘Stick to what your good at’ - 2013

      Its easy to get sucked into following the fashion and not trying to break the mould. We found the challenge a tough one but believed in what we did. The feedback from customers confirmed what we believed in. A few small wins but Design thinking, Innovation and UX was going to be here for a long time.

    • 'Green shoots - 2014'

      We started growing the company slowly but surely…carefully nurturing what we had started by investing in people (the right people). A new breed of SAP consultancy with a flair for design & a touch of pragmatism. We strived to bring these two sometimes contrasting skills to the SAP market. It is working. It is growing.

    • ‘Out with the new, in with the old’ - 2015

      Our Innovation office in the UK began. Sometimes developing on old technology but delivering a new user experience. A unique and simple solution to a very complex problem. ‘Don’t take this the wrong way but it is too simple’ was one comment. We thanked them very much for their observation.

    • ‘Pastures new’ - 2016

      We move into new areas of digital innovation and new industry sectors using design thinking to break down the barriers. We continue to grow our team and embrace new digital SAP technologies.

    • Design & Innovation Center – 2017

      Our new design and innovation center ‘The Church Offices’ in the heart of Shropshire. A refurbished old baptist church with the space, light and architecture to inspire customers and developers when working alongside us.

    Malcolm Hamilton – Arla UK Customer Services Manager

    "We engaged with Bluestonex Consulting because of their deep knowledge of SAP ECC, especially SAP logistics. They responded very quickly and have resolved the issues we were having following a comprehensive root cause analysis. We will now look to use their knowledge to transfer to our own in-house customer service team via the BluestoneX training programme.”

    Chris Whinfrey - Brakes Network Implementation Director

    “We engaged with Bluestonex as we required user experience advisory services regarding supply chain process execution. Their design thinking approach coupled with a deep understanding of SAP logistics helped us realise the value of user experience & how to improve our existing SAP solution”
