ISB Global is an SAP, OutSystems and Amazon Web Services (AWS) partner. Established in 1998, becoming an SAP partner in 2005 and developing the Waste & Recycling One software solution within the framework of SAP Business One, SAP’s small to medium sized Enterprise Requirements Planning (ERP) software application.
ISB Global became an SAP Global Application Development Partner in 2011 and has implemented Waste & Recycling One with SAP Business One globally. The software solution was enhanced by a mobile, web, Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity and innovations platform branded SmartWorld built on the OutSystems low code application development platform. A suite of preconfigured, integrated software applications suited to small and medium sized companies. Comprising of several applications that included route management and optimisation, driver mobile application, customer and supplier portals, onboard weighing and a smart bins application.
ISB Global is supporting waste, recycling and materials management organisations with the most advanced software solution suite in the world. Due to the progress in software technologies, ISB Global planned a strategic advance to refactor over 15 years of experience in the development of Waste & Recycling One and SmartWorld onto the OutSystems low code, multi experience development platform.
With certified integration to SAP, S/4 HANA, and SAP Business One, ISB Global can now serve organisations more flexibly with an enterprise class waste and recycling software solution with a modular suite of applications for small, large and multinational business. Uniquely, the Waste & Recycling One suite of applications can be implemented with the OutSystems aPaaS option for the client’s business to control and further their enterprise digital transformation.
To service the requirements of a dynamic global market more effectively, ISB Global planned to refactor the Waste & Recycling One solution from the framework of SAP Business One and the mobile and web apps built in OutSystems. The Waste & Recycling One application has been modernised by being refactored onto the OutSystems platform in its entirety. Integrating to SAP, other ERP applications and legacy systems, as OutSystems has been designed. This also enables other applications within a system landscape to be refactored and hosted as part of the aPaaS proposition or for smaller organisations, hosted by ISB Global.
Refactoring is the process of reorganising code without necessarily changing the outcome of the business process or behaviours of the code. Intended to improve performance, design, functionality and implementation. Reducing complexity, increasing ease of readability and maintenance. This improvement also allows for the application to be extended further, incorporating new technologies, process, user interfaces, integration and device connectivity.
Part of the enhanced unique selling proposition of Waste & Recycling One on the low code, multi-experience development platform, is to allow client businesses to do exactly the same – refactor – digitising, extending and integrating core and new apps using data within the Waste & Recycling One and ERP software. In turn utilising advanced software technologies to support innovation and modernisation to make the transition to circular economy models using digital transformation quicker and easier.
