New software system aims to take the stress out of growing businesses

A user-friendly business management system aimed at helping ambitious businesses reach the next level of success is being launched.

BMS Kompass will target service businesses with 20-250 employees who need affordable software to manage their projects and staff while growing their business.

The innovative system has been in development for over 15 years and has supported the impressive growth of one of Europe’s leading geospatial survey companies, Murphy Geospatial.

Its features are ideal for companies faced with remote work because they allow managers and their teams to work in real time; track projects, people and performance, enabling them to act quickly in the face of changing needs. The team says it would be an ideal tool for geospatial firms and other crewed service companies.

The company decided to develop its own system, Kompass, after researching many larger enterprise resource management systems that it says can take weeks of training to use. Kompass has now been spun off from Murphy Geospatial as a separate entity in its own right and a standalone website has been launched to bring the service to a wider market.

Kompass BMS 400x280 intuitive dashboard“We understand the pain and challenges that growing a business can bring, with people struggling to divide their time, leaving them feeling overworked and unable to keep things under control. We ourselves have been in this situation as senior executives and business owners,” said Kai Duebbert, General Manager of Kompass BMS.

As a rapidly growing company in a highly competitive market, Murphy Geospatial has struggled to delegate tasks and get the right information at the right time to make important – and shareable – decisions around planning, resources and other strategic business decisions.

“We were tripping over each other with inefficient and inconsistent data in the spreadsheets and were unsure of the work that was coming from our sales and quoting pipeline,” said Niall Murphy, Managing Director of Murphy Geospatial.

“This meant we struggled to react quickly to our customers’ ever-changing demands, leading to long hours, stress, less than ideal productivity and unhappy staff and customers.

“Many companies are on the same path as us at the start. We spent a lot of time trying unsuccessfully to find a business management system that might work for us until we finally decided to design our own.

The system expertly fills a gap in the market for other businesses. Already, several early adopters in Ireland and the United States have started using it over the past year.

“It’s crucial that when a project is launched, your team knows what it’s supposed to be doing and where it needs to be,” Niall added. “The sales team needs to know availability and management needs to know what pipeline is in place so resources can be planned accordingly. Kompass can help do all of this in addition to being intuitive and easy to use. »

Kompass hopes to attract interest from geospatial and other service companies in the United States, Canada, Ireland and the United Kingdom that have between 20 and 250 employees and do not yet have an integrated system but who are looking to grow.

In addition to a dashboard view with up-to-date key business metrics and information, scheduled updates and customer contacts, the modules include a sales section, HR insights and important management functionality of project.

Being web-based and cloud-based, it requires no special software and can be accessed via mobile phone, tablet or PC from anywhere with an internet connection.

In addition to being able to create quotes and tasks and assign them to staff, Kompass is built on a GIS platform that records project coordinates and the history of each job, helping to see what other projects have been completed in an area to gain a competitive advantage. advantage.

“We built it from the perspective of a business owner. Now, when we demonstrate our system to new customers, they can really see how it will help them. It gives them some light at the end of the tunnel,” Kai said.
