Some love it and using a system you are comfortable with can prove to be efficient; however, sometimes it just can’t get the job done or push the business toward development and growth.

Listening to your Customers can and should be Win Win

During Sage Accelerate in February there was a huge emphasis placed upon Sage listening to their customers and as such, providing them with what they really want.

At the time I was unimpressed. I thought perhaps this reactive, rather than proactive approach may stifle innovation or result in slow progress when new options came onto the market. After all, technology moves quickly.

The Brewery Dream - Expanding Efficiently with ERP

Posted by Michael Bulman on 02-Jun-2015 10:03:00

We look and we wonder at the brilliance of such things; the shiny steel and copper, the wondrous odours, the free tasting and the sheer scale. Next we reminisce, considering our youthful days of alcoholic experimentation. The months that the shower was forsaken as the bath was full of home brewed beer. At the beginning a noble sacrifice, in the end a regrettable decision.

Are you driving a Smart car when you need a minibus?

Posted by James Mitchell on 17-Mar-2015 07:30:00


As families grow there is a clear difference in the cars that are parked on their drives. Noticed since little Jimmy’s arrival next door that SLK has been switched for Range Rover? This is down to pure logistics, 2 seats for a 3 person family just isn’t going to work.
