Problems We Solve for Companies

Digitally Transforming Their Businesses

The companies at a growth inflection point require a complete transformation of their operations to reach to the next inflection point in their journey.

As well as in defining your digital roadmap and planning your operations.

Our Case Studies for

Digital Transformation

How is ElevatIQ different?

from Other Digital Transformation Consulting Firms?

Unlike other digital transformation consulting firms, ElevatIQ’s expertise is not just limited to technical and architectural needs. ElevatIQ has much deeper capabilities with process transformation, reengineering, and post-merger integrations.

When it comes to business models transformation initiatives such as new channels or business models, you need to analyze your current processes and systems comprehensively. Other technical consulting firms lack the process and transformation expertise, much needed for the business transformation initiatives to be successful.
While most other consulting firms might focus on one or a couple of systems such as ERP, WMS, or eCommerce, they lack the wholistic perspective to build the enterprise architecture. Not to mention the technical risks because of technical biases.
While most other ERP consulting firms specialize in only a couple of systems, ElevatIQ works closely with over 200 systems and tracks them on a regular basis. This allows them to find solutions with the highest ROI exhausting all the possibilities in the market.
Building a vendor-agnostic architecture requires you to draw data flows between different warehouses, channels, processes, and systems. It also requires you to identify the source of truth for each shared dataset. Finally, you need to design master data governance process flows and how you will maintain the integrity of architecture through the process and data controls. There are very few firms like ElevatIQ that have deep expertise in building enterprise architecture that scales.
Most web development agencies don’t have the operations and finance background to understand the ERP data models and create integration flows around them. In most cases, they end up overengineering the web layers, which results in significant challenges for customer experience, such as inconsistent pricing experience or lead times higher than the industry. ElevatIQ can help avoid these challenges through its ERP data model expertise.
Understanding and negotiating software licenses and contracts require you to have an understanding of transaction and integration flows. Your decisions could fire back if you didn’t understand the licensing model of the underlying systems. We have dealt with the licensing of one of the largest enterprise software and understand different architectural patterns and licensing models deeply.
