Amethyst Systems, Portishead
Amethyst Systems are an established business software company based in Portishead, North Somerset, specialising in bespoke solutions for logistics and mobile workforces.
Over the past five years, Amethyst Systems has worked with a range of businesses around the UK, developing innovative applications to tackle a range of business problems.
Tony Fifield, Director and Principal Developer at Amethyst Systems, says: “Ever since first establishing Amethyst back in 2008, we've always sought to work directly alongside our clients to find solutions that are tailor-made to their requirements, and which specifically fulfil the function required by the business.”
“For example, we worked alongside Tailored Recruitment Services (TRS) to build a completely bespoke web application, the result of which was a simple portal for clients to submit and approve timesheets, and a powerful management and invoicing tool for TRS. This portal made all existing paperwork and spreadsheets redundant for the business, provided for flexible and efficient invoicing, and improved the visibility of costs against charges for the business.”
“Being previously based in Bristol we found the ideal office at Pure Offices, Portishead, which allows for flexibility and growth.”
“Portishead in North Somerset is a great place to live and work, and has good access to the M5 Motorway.”
TRS' bespoke web application is just one of many examples of Amethyst projects that have aided their business partners since the company's foundation. Another Amethyst success story is the work that the company did to support OfficeScape, a leading supplier of business products for offices. The company required a comprehensive database application to assist with the management of its busy call centre, which makes and takes over a million calls a year. Amethyst developed this new system within just six weeks, allowing OfficeScape to benefit from offering remote working to its staff too.
Here at Amethyst, we can develop a range of solutions for businesses - from traditional web and Windows database applications, through to Rugged PDA solutions.
A recent example of Amethyst’s work in the logistics sector is the complete warehouse management system with barcode scanning developed for Freezeserve. The new system has already enabled Freezeserve to break their logistics records and in its first full month of operation it facilitated an incredible 23,401 pallet movements.
