Departments

Development

Foresiight conducts all development in-house to ensure the integrity of our software is managed as closely as possible. This allows the in-depth knowledge of the product to remain within our organisation as well as allowing custom development and industry-specific features to be integrated seamlessly.  With a local team comes local knowledge – our Development team understands the needs and trends of Australian business and these needs are at the core of our development path. The result is some of the best business management software Australia has to offer.

Implementation

Foresiight understands that implementing a new software package can be daunting and our transition plan is designed so that we encompass all that is required – including data conversion, software customisation and user training. Our very experienced team will hold your hand through this entire process to ensure a smooth transition.  With a full implementation and rollout plan customised to your business needs, you will always have a full understanding of how the implementation is progressing.  Our experts take everything they have learned across many industries, and use that knowledge and those processes to help your business become more efficient and more profitable.

Software Support

Foresiight understands the importance of speaking to a real person when it comes to customer service. We have retained our ‘old-school’ mentality to support, which allows your issue to be dealt with quickly and precisely. Using remote help, we can see your screen and guide you through troubleshooting any problems as well as training sessions, as though we were right next to you.  We also offer both remote and on-site training, for those looking to improve their processes and take their business to the next level.

Technical Support

Foresiight takes pride in their software offerings and never want to see poor customer experiences through inadequate or poorly setup hardware. That is why we have our own experienced tech team to help with initial setup, and to point you in the right direction when it comes to your network and IT equipment configuration. Whether you’re looking for ERP software for wholesale, retail or pharmacy – we’ll ensure that you have the technical support you need.
