Lawson Software gained popularity for providing ERP applications for enterprises in the midmarket range. In the ERP world, Lawson is considered a well-respected software specialist.
At the end of the first quarter of 2007, Lawson focused its sights on distributors and manufacturers. Sudden changes in processes are the norm for these industries; thus Lawson provided ERP applications that could give their clients the needed flexibility to handle these changes. Lawson ERP applications also promised to provide better functionality for end users. Based on the positive response from its clients, Lawson did deliver what they promised.
And now, at the end of the first quarter of 2008, Lawson sets its sights on much bigger clients. The company just recently announced their venture into government by introducing the Lawson QuickStep Government, an ERP application specifically designed to suit the needs that come from running towns, counties, cities, and municipalities.
With Lawson’s experience in creating efficient and reliable applications for corporations, the company promises to combine government-specific processes with successful business strategies. After all, Lawson recognizes that running a government is not much different from running a business.
However, running a government, in some areas, is vastly different from running a business. One example is the higher level of transparency a government is required to have. Lawson recognizes this need, and thus the software company designed their government ERP applications to have features that can handle funds (including grants) and assets while tracking accountability, among others.
Lawson QuickStep Government is user-friendly yet comprehensive in its functionality. For people working for the government, this Lawson ERP application is definitely something to look forward to.
