SuperConcepts consolidates software systems
SMSF administration firm SuperConcepts will be consolidating all of its administration tools onto one platform and phasing out a number of systems inherited from acquisitions.
Technology company Progress has announced that SuperConcepts will move all of its SMSF administration tools onto the Progress OpenEdge platform.
SuperConcepts inherited a number of systems after acquiring other firms, particularly from SuperIQ, which will be phased out as SuperConcepts consolidates its applications onto SuperMate, Progress said.
SuperConcepts chief technical officer Kurt Groeneveld said after eight acquisitions, the company had a lot of overlapping systems and needed to “consolidate onto the best platforms for the business”.
“Progress has been a long time trusted partner for us, and their vision for the future of applications is perfectly aligned with where we and our customers want to go,” said Mr Groeneveld.
Progress senior vice president of core products John Ainsworth said to stay competitive organisations today need to deliver the most modern and engaging web and mobile experiences, and the mission-critical systems behind them need to offer world-class reliability, security and availability.
“SuperConcepts is a great example of how an organisation can reach new levels of success and growth by offering both systems of record and systems of engagement that enable their customers to acquire, retain and serve customers at world-class levels,” said Mr Ainsworth.
