Gradient Consulting are delighted to announce the appointment of Michael Smith to the Board as of 28th November 2014.  Mike will add complementary skills to the team bringing many years of practical knowledge and experience within Warehousing, Inventory Management, Third Party Logistics and Manufacturing.   Mike reports that he has often witnessed a disconnect between the real needs of client’s staff on the ground and the received understanding by the Software vendor (gained from his years helping run a software house).  Because of this, although NOT a programmer, he also brings a deep understanding of the issues of software design and interfacing that might assist in delivering the most successful implementation or installation re-launch.  Mike’s mission is to help grow Gradient to become a major contributor to the success of SME’s across the UK.
