FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How fast can we transition from our existing system to your Weissr® Capex software solution?

How many modules can we use at the same time?

How does Weissr® Capex Budget & Management compare to one developed in Excel & SharePoint system?
  • Cost – Even though you most probably already have both SharePoint and Excel, developing your own Capex solution or outsourcing thereof will typically cost you more than investing in a tailormade solution. Especially when you consider the cost to continuously develop it in order to keep up with industry-leading systems. In addition, Weissr® gives you access to an experienced support team with years of experience working with all aspects around Capexes.
  • Ease of Use – Weissr® Capex intuitive and clean interface, in combination with your organization’s documents, reduces training and implementation challenges.
  • Customization – Customize installation for the features your organization needs.
  • Connectors – Communicate with other software solutions you work with through open APIs.
  • Functionality – The end-to-end Weissr® Capex platform is the result of more than 25 years of experience working with Capex and related questions. Our theoretical thought-leadership combined with our world-class inhouse software development team guarantees our customers are always at the forefront of technical development. This is what we do, day in, day out. It is our core activity. Developing something by yourself will be very costly and difficult to keep updated in terms of technology and features.
