Cross Products, Inc. offers the following services to meet your computing needs: business analysis, custom sofware development, system integration services, data conversion, web development and support services.
Business analysis is the process of discovery, translation and documentation of system requirements. The discovery process involves interviews with future users, evaluation of current business practices and discovery of future business needs.
CPI offers complete lifecycle support for software systems and assists in bridging the gap between business users and technical teams. Analysis, design, development, testing, implementation and migration, training, maintenance and support...
At CPI, we understand the difficulty business users have when trying to describe software requirements. Since pictures are worth a thousand words, we use a prototyping process which involves frequent prototyping of the system under development. This gives the users frequent opportunities to provide feedback and we've found that this ensures a strong sense of ownership from the user community. Resistance to new software implementations is minimized and scope creep problems are controlled.
Inevitably, software solutions in the modern world are composed of multiple systems that need to communicate. We provide evaluation and integration services to ensure optimal solutions for the integration of systems.
There are many reasons why software conversions become a necessity. Business growth may require more robust databases or better user interfaces handling more concurrent users. Government regulations may demand higher quality security. Software tool providers may 'end-of-life' a tool - meaning the platform on which a system is built will no longer be supported. There are many reasons for converting software systems to different tools and environments. CPI provides conversion services to address these needs.
A Web presence is considered a business requirement by customers. There is no better way to provide customer service, shareholder information and publish corporate credentials. CPI can provide Web development services to meet this business requirement. Some of the websites we have authored are custom solutions, but for customers needing more of an 'information only' presence, we recommend an open source content management solution called DotNetNuke. The following is an excerpt from the DotNetNuke website:
DotNetNuke® is the most widely adopted framework for building websites and web applications on Microsoft ASP.NET. Using DotNetNuke, businesses can quickly develop and deploy interactive, dynamic websites, intranets, extranets and applications.
With hundreds of thousands of deployments around the world, a thriving user community and a huge array of available third-party extensions DotNetNuke is the smartest way to develop and deploy Internet applications.
DotNetNuke installations can be readily customized to meet your unique business needs. A significant part of the total cost of website development is the graphic design. With DotNetNuke, many free "skins" are available to reduce startup costs. Your website can be upgraded very easily with a professional, custom skin when your budget permits.
In addition to Software and Disaster Recovery solutions, we offer short and long-term software support services as well as on demand emergency services. We can be your de facto IT department. We specialize in Microsoft operating systems, products and development tools, but also have extensive experience in other environments.
