Digital City

The SME’s were from varying industries including Oil & Gas, Heavy Engineering, Pharmaceutical, sports, safety and servicing.

Problem

The diversity of the project delivery meant there wasn’t just one problem, these were the common ones:

  • Businesses operate inefficient software solutions where duplicate information is recorded but not linked between systems.
  • Businesses often use lots of spreadsheets, created by different people over many years these become fundamental to the operation of the business. However the spreadsheets tend to introduce many inefficiencies, duplication of effort and human errors into the business.
  • Staff in these businesses are spending longer to perform their duties because of the lack of integration.
  • Although not a problem part of the digital audit consultancy involved detailing the technology choices and options available to businesses looking to create a software platform.

 

Solution

With each of the businesses we spent time listening to key staff and exploring all the areas of IT and software if relevant. We then spent time researching these platforms or industries so a bespoke report could be created.

The bespoke report detailed the possible solutions and options available to enable innovation and growth and to prevent the inefficiencies within the business. The report also detailed possible timescales, costs, things to consider such as hosting architecture, resilience and disaster recovery.

Business Benefits

The following business benefits have been realised by the SMEs involved in the program.

  • Detailed development roadmaps – each business had a realistic roadmap of development so the whole project didn’t need to be done in one go.
  • Options – the solutions include elements of off the shelf solutions. If the solution warrants it and there is a product we can recommend then it will be recommended. This saves cost, development time and there’s no point reinventing the wheel!
  • The solution to unlock growth potential and innovation!
