Content Development from Tailored Workshops to a Managed Service

The development of Content can be complex and time consuming. Ensuring that the developed Content addresses the requirements of the various elements of the Project Team, as well as the users, can be a challenge. As with any Project, experience is invaluable. The Development Teams at Larmer Brown have extensive hands-on experience of scoping, planning and delivering Content Development projects to specific objectives and budgets.

Our Development Projects often incorporate both system and non-system Content, reflecting the end-to-end Project. Our experience spans all business streams including Finance, P2P, HR/Payroll, SCM, CRM, Retail, Talent Management, BI and Reporting.

Larmer Brown has supported numerous enterprise implementations, utilising several different Content Development tools, and each client is a reference. Our Developers have worked with most applications, including those now owned by Oracle, SAP, CA Technologies and Microsoft. Bespoke applications include those developed in ‘fat’ and ‘thin’ client environments, as well as various dumb terminal infrastructures developed in popular programming platforms.

Our extensive Project experience has evolved into a portfolio of customisable tools and methodologies that bring significant additional value to our clients. Although the tools we use are powerful in terms of Content Development they are not always an ‘out-of-the-box’ solution. Content Development Projects usually involve the development and sign-off of hundreds of processes and proven methods are essential if the Development Team is to work effectively and achieve targets, in terms of both time and budget
