The Phire Story

Conceived in early 2003, Phire was officially established as a Virginia corporation in 2005 by a team of ERP implementation experts to provide affordable, best-in-class solutions for managing enterprise applications. Leveraging a collective 35 years of software development and delivery experience, the founders realized that the only thing constant in large ERP implementations was change.

"The founders realized that the only thing constant
in large ERP implementations was change."

Due to the extreme complexities of large ERP systems, we saw first hand the need for an application that can support Project Management activities (document management, issues tracking), Development activities (code version control, code object locking, code recovery), and handle Change Request Tracking (approvals, testing, and other change controls). At the same time, the solution needed to be scalable, enterprise class, and meet all of these requirements from an integrated offering.


The Technology

The founders reasoned that if PeopleSoft customers felt strongly enough to invest in the technical architecture and the integrated PeopleTools development environment delivered by PeopleSoft, why not build the solution to support changes to the PeopleSoft applications using PeopleTools technologies? Doing so would allow customers to leverage their existing infrastructure and take advantage of their existing in-house technical, development, and support knowledge. Thus, the decision was made to commence the development of an Application Change Management solution using PeopleTools.

The Solution

In 2005, Phire completed the initial development of Phire ACM™, a scalable, enterprise class Application Change Management suite built using PeopleTools that enables file and PeopleTools object version control and automates code migrations. Because Phire is built using PeopleTools, it looks and feels like any other PeopleSoft application, facilitating support and user acceptance. The bottom line is a cost effective solution for your change management needs that can be deployed in few weeks versus months.

Our mission

Our mission is to enable our customers to maximize the value of their Enterprise Applications by providing cost effective application management solutions that enable organizations to lower costs, gain efficiency and reliability, and achieve compliance.
