Fever-Tree

Spec, Select & Implementation Project

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.

Promethean

Promethean

Global Systems Project

CAV Aerospace

CAV Aerospace

Optimise Global Business Processes

CAV Aerospace operates from eleven sites around the world. Prior to the project only the head office sites were on the core ERP system, the remaining eight sites were operating on a range of legacy systems, spreadsheets and locally developed databases.

Natural Power

Viking River Cruises

Viking River Cruises

ERP System Selection

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.

Buoyant Upholstery

Buoyant Upholstery

ERP System Selection

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 in view of expansion plans for the business and therefore decided to undergo a 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, whilst 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 business was growing.

Lebus Upholstery

Lebus Upholstery

ERP System Project

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 package 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.

Kaydee Blinds/Sayfa Systems

Kaydee Blinds/Sayfa Systems

ERP System Selection

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 efficiently support their operations 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 in order to find a system suitable for both companies.

What our clients say

"At the end of the selection process, when we presented to the board, they asked me to pass on thanks to all involved for the thoroughness and professionalism with which the project was handled."

Neil Douglas Director, Natural Power Read More

"We needed to rapidly develop detailed specifications. Gradient Consulting was a tremendous help to us in defining the requirements. Their combination of solid methodology and flexible project management allowed them to deliver a superior result within a very short time-frame. Their project manager Leigh was an invaluable asset to our project."

Andrew Neilson VP Operations/Projects Read More

"On reaching cut-over and implementation phase we felt we lacked the knowledge and professionalism to ensure all our pre implementation effort would not be wasted. Gradient and their expertise allowed us to confidently complete the migration without any lost time or problems."
