We specialise in Project Management, Software Design, Development and Support for your IBMi, iSeries and AS400. RPG, EDI, JBA System21.


Concise Consulting has worked with many clients ranging in size from SME’s to global corporates, throughout the UK, Europe and North America. Our clients have included organisations in the Finance, Retail, Logistics, Utilities and Manufacturing industries.

We have been responsible for managing IT departments and for managing many projects from initiation to completion ensuring that projects are completed on time, within budget and to the client’s satisfaction.

Whilst carrying out these roles, we have been responsible for:

  • Systems analysis, design, development and support.
  • Data mapping and integration.
  • Managing project teams, suppliers and customers over multiple locations and time zones.
  • Defining and implementing IT strategy
  • Monitoring of budgets and timescales.
  • Recruitment of permanent and contract staff.
  • Presentations to project teams, current and potential customers.
  • Hardware and software upgrades.

We have a great deal of experience in software development and the integration of disparate systems having  successfully managed, developed, implemented and supported solutions on a variety of platforms.

Technically, we specialise in the IBMi (AS400) platform and the design, development and support of custom software running on the IBMi to integrate with Ecom, EDI, B2C, B2B, POS and WMS applications running locally, remotely or in the cloud. Development is usually undertaken using RDi and the latest fully **free format version of RPG incorporating embedded SQL, although we have experience of developing and supporting applications using all versions of RPG.

We have installed and upgraded a number of IBM AS400 and Windows servers and associated networks together with software such as databases, office applications, web and mail servers.  We have also been responsible for the support of these systems including job scheduling, networking, backups, hardware, software and operating system upgrades and problem resolution.

We provide both on-site and remote services to clients on either a consultancy or contract basis and travel extensively throughout the UK and Europe to visit clients as and when needed.

If you have a project (any size, large or small) that you think we could assist with, please get in touch for an initial discussion.
