Business Applications

Automating business processes with modern technology.

Custom end-to-end application development

Every business is unique with its own complex set of needs and challenges for which there is no one-size-fits-all solution. In every industry—be it a not-for-profit organization, a government or regulatory body, manufacturing and distribution, energy and natural resources, or anything else—efficiency and productivity are key.

BDO's Business Applications practice offers tailored CRM, ERP, HRM and FP&A solutions designed to help manage a range of specific business functions—from sales and customer service to finance, talent, and operations.

Leveraging several decades of experience within various industries, we combine our extensive industry knowledge and technical expertise to help our clients automate their processes with modern technology to meet key business outcomes such as:

  • Increase revenue by enabling a better customer experience and getting to the market quicker with new products and services
  • Make better business decisions faster by transforming finance and operations data into actionable intelligence
  • Win the war on talent by increasing employee engagement and improving the overall talent experience, from the first interview through to retirement
  • Respond quicker and with more confidence to new legislation, regulatory requirements, or global events such as the pandemic

Business applications enable you to be more efficient and productive, so you can provide the best service you can to your clients.
