Charente (now Harrison Maritime) is a group of companies with a long tradition in the nautical sector. The Charente Group of companies has a proud history in the marine industry. The group includes Lilley and Gillie Ltd who are one of the world’s leading suppliers of nautical equipment, instruments and navigation charts. There was a requirement to find an ERP system to allow them to control three diverse sites across the UK. They also wanted the solution to improve efficiencies and promote further growth.
Charente recognised that they did not have the in-house expertise. Due to this, they turned to Gradient for expert help and advice in selecting their new business system. Following the selection Charente continued to use Gradient to project manage the implementation.
Gradient led the implementation project, working closely with Charente’s internal teams and the system vendor, across all three of their UK sites, in Liverpool, North Shields and the manufacturing plant in Birmingham.
