How it works – We communicate with your ERP and back-end systems in three primary methodologies:
- Direct Integration
to target system(s). Push/pull data to/from target system(s). Real time data presented.
- Data Store/Data Warehouse
Push/pull data from to/from data store/warehouse. Near real time data presented.
- File Feed
Pull formatted file from designated location. Push data back for upload into target system(s). Near real time or longer term data presented depending on frequency of file feed from target systems.

And if you change platforms our solutions will continue to operate with your new environment without an expensive rewrite or major upgrade.

Stay With Your Preferred ERP Platform
ICG Is ERP Agnostic
We are a technology-independent company, which means that we take an agnostic approach when it comes to your back-end systems. Each of our customers have their own set of back-end financial, line of business, and related ERP systems in place, and we interface our value added solutions with each one.
Our ERP-agnostic method allows us to move faster for you and is designed to work with minimal or zero customization required.
The ICG Approach Is Different
Unfortunately, many solution providers focus on one platform (i.e. SAP, Oracle, Infinium, etc.) and design all of their offerings around that platform. We takes a 180-degree opposite approach and build smarter tools that don’t require our clients to throw away what they like and use everyday. ICG’s solutions work with whatever platform you have today or tomorrow!
We’ve Refined Our Methods Over Many Years
Our process did not develop in a vacuum – it is the result of observing our customers and their painful upgrade/platform transitions over the years. As technology moves forward, we started to ask “Why?” If you are going to make a big leap, there ought to be something really good at the other end.
There is no need to start all over and learn new technologies or solutions if they only address the same issues as before. For that reason we build our tools to compliment your ERP platform and back-end systems by filling in the gaps and extending the value of those systems. And all of this without expensive and time consuming customizations to your legacy applications.
Our solutions will adapt to technologies as they change, which further reduces compatibility problems down the road. It will be your choice to upgrade, replace, or maintain ERP platform versions, the only thing that needs to change is our interface that talks to your software.
The result is that your users will continue to do their jobs, needing no additional training. There will be no big changeover and no software growing pains.
Our approach is not go scrapping tried-and-true applications that are providing real value. And if you do want to change ERP platforms down the road? That’s a go!
