What software systems are you using to cover your sustainability requirements?

The Software & Systems team at Anthesis focuses on software solutions, solution development, implementation, and defining and integrating business processes. We support IT-oriented employees, working in any sector, who are looking for software coverage, business process optimization and improved data structures across different areas of sustainability.

Most organizations run large ERP systems, like Oracle or SAP, to cover core and standard processes for financials, supply chain management and logistics. On top of these, they operate smaller and tailored systems inside their business units, which can often be simple Excel and Word spreadsheets. To increase efficiency and avoid compliancerelated risks, it is crucial for a company to fully understand the strategy, requirements, process flows, data structures and software landscape of a business unit and its sustainability requirements.

The Software & Systems team at Anthesis offer large off-the-shelf software implementations, smaller point solutions and very small, but hugely customizable solutions, along with business process operations support closely combined with Anthesis’ strategic consulting expertise.
