Do your computer systems experience a "failure to communicate?"  Do you have a variety of systems that don't talk to each other, requiring data to be manually copied from one system to another?  Lucid Enterprises can make your diverse systems talk to each other.  You don't have the application source code?  No problem!  We can analyze the data and create interfaces between existing systems, and/or develop new applications to expand the capabilities of existing systems.  For example, we created a Time Card Payroll System, integrating it into the existing Infor/DataStream MP2 System.


Lucid Enterprises, Inc. provides a wide range of computer services to businesses of all sizes. Our services include:
