We take the time to understand your existing systems / IT, business needs and work effectively alongside your team.
Unlike others, we are hybrid business/system IT specialists with deep expertise in specifying, procuring and implementing manufacturing and distribution applications like yours.
Systems / IT Strategy
Looking to define and analyse requirements for a new IT system?
Need help to identify and purchase the best IT systems for your business?
Want some experienced expertise to help plan the implementation?
Getting the right application systems for your business can be complicated, especially those involving new technology or functionality, integration with existing systems and/or cross-business teams, functions or organisations. ERP, MRP, CRM, FSM are notorious.
It’s a sad fact that 70% to 80% of all systems projects/programmes fail to deliver on time, budget and quality. This statistic hasn’t changed in the last 30 years! Poor requirements definition, wrong system selection and bad management are common causes.
We have hybrid business/system experts qualified in modern methodologies such as PRINCE2, MSP, APMP, etc. We manage system improvements in a business-like manner to ensure you get the right system, capable of delivering the expected business benefits.
Systems / IT Change Programmes
Got a failing system implementation needing recovery or turnaround?
Need independent governance to assure delivery of your system implementation?
Want some experienced, qualified expertise to advise and guide your team?
Implementing a new system is a business change programme, not a software development project. Unfortunately, most implementation leaders focus on project plans, reports and tasks as if they are projects, and forget about managing the changes associated with people.
Integration of your IT people, business teams, software suppliers, etc. won’t happen on its own. Stakeholder management, communication and benefit realisation are critical, but overlooked, which is why 70% to 80% of all systems changes fail.
We have hybrid business/system experts qualified in modern methodologies such as PRINCE2, MSP, APMP, etc. We manage system implementations in an integrated, people-centric manner to ensure delivery of the expected benefits quickly and cost-effectively.
Systems Quality & Assurance Health Checks
Need independent input to assure quality and provide more confidence?
Want a qualified second opinion on a difficult system change programme?
Like some experienced, qualified expertise to provide regular health checks?
Quality and assurance ensures everything is fit for purpose and on target to achieve desired outcomes. Without it, your systems projects and programmes are more likely to fail.
While quality management is focused on doing the right things properly, assurance management is about providing confidence. Assurance therefore requires assessors that are independent of the programme and line management. It must also be integrated with the programme, linked to major decision points, risk based and driving follow-up action.
Our hybrid business/system experts are qualified in quality and assurance methods and bring experience of assessing, advising and assuring delivery of systems projects and programmes for manufacturing and distribution companies like yours.
