The World Is Your Oyster*

As a company in the wholesale distribution sector, the world is your oyster, and your oyster is our oyster! So, if you want to be prepared to open those oysters (also known in this analogy as opportunities) and reap the rewards, you need a world-class ERP designed for your industry.

And you need Strategic Systems Group (SSG) to guide you every step of the way.

Quote by Brian Iinuma, SSG President

The term “white glove” came from the literal white gloves worn by a classic English butler. Today, white-glove service refers to the special attention and care given to fragile and expensive goods when moving them from a seller to a consumer. White glove is essentially an elite service.

Brian Iinuma, Strategic Systems Group President, explains: “As I think about the ERP software systems that we implement, maintain, upgrade, and support for our clients, the phrase ‘white-glove service’ comes to mind. Because that’s how we deliver world-class ERP to each and every one of our clients.”

We want to be 100% sure that we have provided each and every one of our clients with the software, the apps, the tools, the infrastructure, and the security they need to pursue every business opportunity that comes across their desks. So, it is not just about excellent service but about every aspect of the technology. We package it all together, tie it virtual up in a virtual red ribbon, put on our virtual white gloves, and deliver world-class ERP to you on a silver platter.

Technology at its Very Best: Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central

We do not sell you software and services separately. As a cloud-based ERP system, Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central IS effectively what is known as Software as a Service (SaaS). You do not get one without the other. And that just makes so much sense to us here at Strategic Systems Group. When the SaaS model was first introduced around 1985, we knew it would be a game-changer, a significant paradigm shift away from the traditional model where every company purchased their own software, installed it on their own servers, and employed a team to provide ongoing maintenance and support.

Software as a Service (SaaS) is a software licensing and delivery model in which software is licensed on a subscription basis and is centrally hosted. SaaS ensures that users are always running the most up-to-date versions of the software. What’s more, the SaaS provider, in this case, Microsoft, handles upgrades, maintenance, and support.

SaaS now falls into the category of cloud computing, so in addition to the software, you also get Platform as a Service (PaaS), which in this case is Microsoft Azure, and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), which in this case is a Microsoft datacenter that among other things provides storage and world-class security.

Microsoft, through your chosen Microsoft Dynamics Partner (hopefully Strategic Systems Group 😊), handles everything.

*If you are a word person, you might be wondering where that expression came from and what it means. Well, the phrase “the world is your oyster” is a quote that initially came from Shakespeare’s The Merry Wives of Windsor. It means that you are open to exploring the opportunities that present themselves to you. But oysters have to be pried apart to reveal the pearl (if any) inside. In fact, as the size of the oyster increases, the more difficult it is for the shell to be pried open. In other words, the bigger the opportunity, the more effort will be demanded to reap the rewards.
