SOUR SERVICES

Our consultants have been crafting (yes crafting), beautiful SAP experiences across desktop, tablet & mobile devices. For us, every SAP project is a unique experience, from ERP implementations to delivering enterprise mobile solutions, our agile and collaborative approach helps customers maximise the true value of their investment in SAP technology.

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.

Whether you’re on premise on interested in cloud we can deliver value through Blueskyx services utilising our services and SAP Cloud Platform.

Partner Managed Cloud – SAP Cloud Platform

We utilise SAP Cloud Platform for Fiori apps, SAP Screen Personas cloud edition, Co-Pilot, new technologies such as IoT, Machine learning as well as other UI5 agnostic applications. Imagine a world where all your applications are residing in the same unified user entry point (The Fiori Launch Pad) giving non SAP users the same consistent look and feel? Ever considered replacing a myriad of databases using the SAP cloud platform where we can build you /replace old databases with beautiful UI’s.

We have certified SAP consultants that deliver digital transformation programmes enabled by next generation SAP HANA & SAP Cloud 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 Centre – 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.

    • The Future of UX - 2018

      New technologies emerge around user experience and we are on top of it. Whether it be plug and play UX in the cloud or on premise we can deliver our new UX transformation via ‘Blueskyx’ our new service offering.

    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”
