Heikkilä explains that Lingsoft has been using specially tailored software, primarily targeted for translation businesses. “However, our increasing activities with a large variety of customers, from private individuals to large technology partners, forced us to re-evaluate our tools to be able to handle clients more efficiently.”

According to Heikkilä, Lingsoft has been in productive cooperation with HansaWorld already since 1999.

"We have been satisfied with the previous steps together and pleased with the innovative approach HansaWorld has shown over the years. So when we started to look for new software to support our growth; naturally Standard ERP was the first choice."

The Solution

For many people in Lingsoft, Nokia Communicators have been the main communications tool for a number of years now. “We are living in a business world, where dynamic exchange of information is vital, especially for a company like ours. Increased contacts with customers and growing amounts of field work created the need for our sales people to access customer information on a “just-in-time” basis. We find the Business Communicator answers this need well and it is now being introduced to our sales and marketing personnel,” Heikkilä explains.

The Future

Lingsoft aims at offering its customers quick and high quality service, regardless of the place and time and wireless communication is at the core of these standards. The company is eager to make use of existing possibilities offered by Standard ERP's Business Communicator as well as future developments.
