As many manufacturers have found, a focus on product design cannot sustain success on its own. With growth comes business complexity, a massive increase in the need for information and ‘intelligence’, and heightened customer expectations, all which have to be managed effectively if the business is not to suffer. In effect, design capabilities have to be matched by business and manufacturing efficiency, if the full benefits of product leadership are to be gained.

This latest success of both companies, which have their own manufacturing and sales operations, is in part due to an extensive change programme undertaken over the past few years, and driven by the recognition of the need to raise the standard of their operational and manufacturing practices to the level of their product offering. One of the most important steps in this programme has been the introduction of a SYSPRO ERP system from Manchester based K3 Syspro (K3).

“As a result, we have been able to cope with an 18% year on year growth, while still improving delivery, and reducing costs and inventory.” She adds, “Without SYSPRO we never would have coped.”
