Inovis Conference and Silveredge

June 11th, 2010

Four of our consultants attended the Inovis User Conference held in Chicago this week. The Inovis folks in attendance were very knowledgeable and our consultants were impressed with the level of expertise in attendance. Key topics included both new and advanced features to the EDI translation software. Upgrades to automated operations are available. The standards presentation was great with much information regarding both XML and X12.

Silveredge has been doing complex EDI implementations since 1991. As a business partner of Inovis, we believe attending conferences of this sort is important to our customer base. We ensure our consultants are well versed in new features and technologies available. By sending our most talented EDI consultants, they can pass this information to others in our firm.

Application Support Outsourcing

March 26th, 2010

After a rigorous vendor selection process, Silveredge was selected to provide PRMS application support helpdesk services.    We were selected over the incumbent firm as well as off-shore vendors.

We have retained this business for the last five years, due to a number of success factors.

  • Clear definition of priority issues.  We identify critical problems early and are committed to the services levels.
  • Year after year budget reductions.
  • Increased stability of the systems, substantial improvements each and every year.
  • Highly defined methodology.
  • Despite budget savings every year, clear service level improvements year over year.
  • Customer enjoys “black box” solution.


We can send you a detailed slide presentation of this solution, which is appropriate to any ERP system.
