System Integration

Efficient, Safe, Full-Service

Gather actionable intelligence to make informed decisions and improve operations

Malone Group provides full project lifecycle services for information systems integration that seamlessly connects disparate systems enabling your business to gather actionable intelligence to make informed decisions and improve operations. Our experienced engineering teams help your team in new system installations and retrofits to existing systems. We have worked with complex automation controls and successfully integrated information systems (incl. ERP integration) seamlessly.

Starting with a User Requirement Specification (URS) leading into a Functional Design Specification (FDS) and I/O lists, we can manage the complete process for you. We develop the code in accordance with the software design specification (SDS) using trusted code libraries and standards and to S88 when required.

Prior to the installation and commissioning of system integration, we provide offline simulation. This helps in reducing installation time and cost, and ensures minimising real-time issues with a detailed simulation model.  We also provide office-based training using simulation facilities.
