CS&S is a group of professionals with over 30 years of experience in software design and support, systems management and consulting. We have a customer base across the country, with a focus on giving the customer tools to help them make business decision to direct their future. CS&S’s primary goal is to work with client’s management team and take an active part in identifying their needs, and find solutions, not only to fit their needs but their budgets as well. We pride ourselves on working in the client’s best interest by working with them, and giving straight answers, with both pro’s and con’s, so the client has a clear understanding of the direction they choose to take. Unlike many other consulting firms out there today, whose primary goal is to bill constantly. It has been our experience, that having a good mutually beneficial relationship, working in the best interest of client, not worrying about billing for every minute of every day, but have an open relationship where both customer and consultant can talk freely to develop ideas and paths which will carry the relationship for many years, is the best way to proceed.
CS&S, has many clients that call to just bounce ideas off, in which they can resolve problems or add enhancements to their system to make them more efficient. Because CS&S welcomes this interaction, the consultant will have open conversation and not bill the client in most cases. This is because, in the bigger picture, CS&S usually will give outline of a plan of attack which will result in both parties working together. On some occasions, if required, client and consultant will decide it should be a more formally meeting or call and schedule time, which the consultant will then decide if it will require billing or not. CS&S does not require service contract, or long term commitments. Clients make the decision of how much or how little they want to use us.
CS&S, is sensitive to many clients long term cost invested in legacy systems. For years clients have invested years of time, and dollars to customize their software to better run their company. That investment does not have to be sacrificed just because their hardware is outdated, and it lacks the current business tools to perform adequately. CS&S has helped many client bring their old legacy business basic* systems to current day hardware and language platforms, and added on current business tools such as; on demand email, fax, direct export to spreadsheet, business intelligent exports and inquiries, laser forms, bar coding, data mining, report generators, print to fax/email and much more. Many current day business tools can be integrated to legacy systems by migrating to a new compatible environment. Deciding to rewrite existing character based applications to make them graphically with a ‘windows’ look and feel, adding functionality, data verification to maintain a clean data source.
