Software needs to be able to handle different language versions and local legalities without major engineering changes. Some packages – while technically brilliant – may lack the functionality for the specifics of contract management in a given country. A lot of extra coding is then required during implementation.
Other packages may have the requirements of many countries built into the core of the software package, which also makes implementations unnecessarily complex. You may only need the specifics for one country, but you’re forced to implement the software for all of them. This takes time and increases the risk of something going wrong.
We’ve created a worldwide version of Foqus Finance as a foundation upon which we can then apply local functionality in the form of different software extensions for various markets.
With these extensions, we can separate country-specific functionality from the core solution – making the system easier to install and thus speeding up our onboarding of new customers.
