Fever-Tree is the English translation for the name of the Cinchona tree, the bark of which provides the original key quality ingredient for the company’s tonics; Quinine.
Fever-Tree is the world’s leading supplier of premium carbonated mixers, with distribution to markets across the world. The company currently has about 100 employees globally. In 2017 revenues were more than £150m with annual YoY growth of more than 60%.
Fever-Tree 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. They 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.
In February 2017, Fever-Tree realised that they needed an ERP System to drive change and support growth in the business. Gradient’s first involvement was to carry out an initial phase of discovery to help determine the requirements of a new system. This was then followed by Gradient supporting the vendor selection process whereby Fever-Tree decided to move forward with the NetSuite system from NoBlue Ltd. Finally, Gradient provided project management services through the implementation stage.
The relationship between Fever-Tree and Gradient began in February 2017 when we were asked to support the decision-making process. This eventually led to Gradient providing project management services with a successful Go Live in February 2018.
Gradient were able to work with Fever-Tree throughout the lifecycle of the project. It began with gathering requirements and ended in a successful implementation of the chosen system, NetSuite.
