About Services . . . . . . .
As Baan users, your staff will already be familiar with the function of Baan's standard display, maintain, processing
and reporting sessions. With the day to day use of Baan and the specific requirements of your organisation, many
people will have noticed functionality that they would prefer could be altered and others will have ideas as to how
forms could be changed to suit their method of working to increase efficiency and productivity.
Brookdale can offer
a full, client-specific, customisation service incorporating customisation tracking and patch management. Click here for more information.
Many organisations have dedicated systems that control specific areas of their business, such as goods receiving or
production process control packages. The data gathered by these systems is often keyed in at source, processed
and then duplicated in Baan.
Creating interfaces with Baan both to and from these systems saves immense time and
eliminates errors in subsequent data transfer. Click here for more details on how
creating Baan interfaces can help your organisation.
Transferring valuable data to or from legacy systems can be a time-consuming task and prone to error. Particularly when importing data into Baan, it is imperative to identify all target tables and fields that the data must populate.
Brookdale can handle your data migration issues to and from Baan using either Baan Exchange or by writing tailored development scripts. Click here to learn more.
Though Baan's functionality is comprehensive and covers all generic business areas, organisations often require
specifically-designed and built sessions to enable either replication of the function of legacy systems or
replacement and improvement of current methods.
Baan / Triton Reports
New development can also encompass brand new functionality
and can be integrated seemlessly into Baan. Visit the development page to examine
some of the advantages and options available.
With an ERP package such as Baan, data content is immense and holds all the information required to enable an
organisation to operate efficiently, productively and cost-effectively. Retrieving that information quickly,
easily and with clarity to all departments is crucial in the smooth running of a business. Baan's standard reports
provide an excellent method of reporting, but are generic and have fixed query fields and layouts.
a first-class report design and report writing service, tailored to retrieve the data you want in the format and
layout that best suits your requirements. Click here for more details on how
tailor-made reports can vastly improve the day to day running of your business and communicate information to
all levels of your organisation's personnel.
The ability to control and manage your organisation's users, data access permissions, printers, Baan companies, software
environments, databases and patch/solution installation is core to the secure and robust operation of Baan. As business
requirements change and new devices / personnel / test platforms need to be catered for, so you need to ensure that the
infrastructure is in place to be able to support and monitor the set-up.
Brookdale is vastly experienced in all
Baan administrative issues and can help you to either create new, or optimise existing configurations. Click

Having purchased Baan as your enterprise planning package, you will be aware that its maximum benefit can only
be realised through effective, efficient utilisation by well-trained staff. This includes ensuring that your technical
staff is able to maintain and manage your system. Brookdale can offer technical training in the whole Baan Tools arena -
including system administration, database management, Product Maintenance & Control, customisation (sessions,scripts, menus,
forms, reports etc.) , reporting and development work.

needs and can be delivered on your site on either a one-to-one or classroom basis.

Increasingly, businesses are discovering the advantages of using third-party, graphically-driven reporting packages.
Business Objects' Crystal Reports is an excellent example of this type of software.
Using Baan drivers, Crystal
is able to access the database (all controlled via Baan's own security) directly to retrieve the data
and to present the results in the desired format, along with company logos and photographs etc. if required.
Crystal can also access multiple databases simultaneously to retrieve data from various sources.
Read more about Crystal report design and writing, or click on the logo to visit
the Crystal Decisions web site.
Interactive Software's Safari/UDMS package is another example of the third-party reporting packages available.
Safari builds its own data dictionary to mirror Baan, then accesses the database (again, using Baan security) to present
data along with graphical images if required.
If your organisation is currently using Safari as its graphical
reporting package, then Brookdale can assist you in offering a full report design, writing and training service.
