Gradient Consulting ERP Case Studies

Buoyant Upholstery

Having taken over the business as part of an MBO, the Buoyant management recognised the risks associated with running a 15-year-old “green screen” system particularly because of expansion plans for the business and therefore decided to undergo an ERP system selection project. Any shortcomings of the system were resolved by the use of several increasingly complex spreadsheet applications which were heavily dependent on key personnel. The system, while able to assist with most of the functional requirements of the business, represented a significant risk to the growing business as support was in short supply and complexity in the company was growing.

Kaydee Blinds/Sayfa Systems

Kaydee Blinds and Sayfa Systems are two separate, but co-owned, companies both supplying products and services to the construction industry. Kaydee’s current ERP system was no longer able to support its operations efficiently, and Sayfa’s rapid growth was beginning to be restricted by the lack of integrated IT systems. The senior management team decided that an ERP system selection project was required to find a system suitable for both companies.

CN Creative

CN Creative is a North West-based healthcare company providing innovative and sustainable solutions to reduce smoking and smoking-related illnesses. They manufacture a wide variety of products including the hugely successful Intellicig, the electronic cigarette now sold in 26 countries worldwide.

Fever-Tree

Fever-Tree are a company that have grown rapidly as their premium products have quickly become a huge success in the marketplace. The company were utilising multiple systems and spreadsheets to manage what was a £100m+ turnover organisation and found that there were silos of information around the business. They could not easily obtain a single version of the truth or a 360o view of their organisation.

Branston

With sites in Lincoln, Scotland and the South West, Branston supply retail, wholesale and food manufacturing customers with fresh and ready prepared potatoes. They do all this with the help of dedicated and professional potato growers who deliver the high standards demand, day in, day out.

Viking River Cruises

Viking River Cruises is a market leading river cruise operator, boasting a fleet of 37 vessels with plans of doubling that figure over the next few years. Due in part to that phenomenal growth the decision was made to undergo an ERP system selection project to find a solution that could cater for their unique set of requirements.

Egbert Taylor

Taylor had been working on an ERP implementation of Infor’s CloudSuite for several months, with a project team of key users and consultants. The objective was to replace a diverse range of legacy systems with a single ERP package. As the planned go-live date approached, there was an increasing concern.

Charente

Charente (now Harrison Maritime) is a group of companies with a long tradition in the nautical sector. There was a requirement to find an ERP system which would allow them to control three diverse sites across the UK, improve efficiencies and promote further growth.

Lebus Upholstery

Lebus operate in a “Fast Moving – Make To Order” manufacturing environment and with their Management Team highly focussed on process improvements it was identified that their business systems, consisting of bespoke manufacturing packages alongside a second application for financial accounts and payroll and a variety of spreadsheets, were holding back progress and that a new ERP system would help support growth in a market of increasing product complexity and with high customer expectations on quality and delivery.
