Prudence

In the 21 years of business, Boon Software Consulting has been managed with sound and structured financial wisdom. For example, most of our regional business development expansions such as in Indonesia and Malaysia have been done organically. We are also tremendously blessed to own all three of our offices that we operate in. Investments in appreciating assets put the company in a sound financial position especially for a SME of our size. It is such financial wisdom that allowed us to ride through the economic peaks and troughs in the past 21 years. Boon Software Consulting started operations in a small rented office in Midpoint Orchard and was there from 1993-2001. In 2001, the Company purchased it’s first property E-Centre @ Redhill, which sits on the fringe of Singapore’s CDB. The Company then purchased another office unit Midview City in 2010, a light-industry business center situated in the middle of Singapore. In 2013, Boon Software invested and hedged for the regional expansion in Indonesia and purchased an office unit in Gallery West, our first overseas property in Jakarta Indonesia.

Community

Boon Software Consulting has deep relations with the education community in Singapore. For over 13 years, tertiary intuitions in Singapore have partnered with Boon Software in the development of their Supply Chain and Logistics curriculum in hands-on approach to learning. The Company played an instrumental role in the tertiary education of Supply Chain and Logistics Studies and made an impact in the educational experiences of over hundreds of students over many years.

These institutions engage their students in “real-life” logistics operations via Symphony Logistics Suite Warehouse Management Systems and work in groups to solve these operational problems to achieve their business objective. Our team has recently organized a field trip for 40 Singapore Polytechnic students and staff to visit our customer Charles & Keith warehouse to connect and crystalize learning outcomes experienced in the classroom. Boon Software Consulting’s Symphony Academy is also in discussion with SP to provide workforce-upgrading training for a Logistics Training Center to issue certificates for fresh graduate and adult learners attainment of competency on Symphony for greater career advancement and employability opportunities.

Boon Software Consulting has also been a corporate partner of Care Community Services Society (CCSS) for many years. Among all the other services, the Singaporean VWO serves the community through an elderly care center that organizes meaningful activities to keep the elderly active and to empower them with a renewed sense of purpose. These centers can become a channel of support for the needs of other elderly in the community. In our calendar of celebration for our 21st anniversary, Boon Software Consulting recently hosted 30 elderly beneficiaries from the Circuit Rd Center to the Flower Dome and Forest Cloud at Gardens By the Bay wherein we had planned a few fun events for them.
