Projects

Some of the projects we have successfully delivered over the last 3 years are: 

Asset Management System – Selection and Procurement
We are currently specifying and selecting a new maintenance management solution for a major maintenance provider. This includes developing detailed functional specifications, market evaluation and implementation strategy.

Business Planning Process – mapping and development
For a major UK metro asset management business we are developing detailed processes for asset planning production, which involves working with representatives from across the whole business to design detailed business processes that can be used to control the complex planning process. These ‘as is’ processes are being used to first optimise the current planning process, and then to develop new approaches to drive business performance. The goal is to take out several months and half the cost of operating the current planning process, whilst delivering a higher quality output that drives business performance.

Business planning tool  - requirements specification
We have recently supported the development of a statement of requirements which included an ITT framework for the selection of a new business planning tool for a major UK metro asset management business.

Existing Asset Management System – Audit and Migration
We undertook a detailed three month audit of how the Voyager application was being used by one of the largest bus groups in the UK detailing shortfalls and functionality required for a system upgrade. We have also assisted a major UK transport company in the successful migration from Voyager to a new system.

Asset Management Systems – Implementation
For a large European bus company with seventeen depots and in excess of four hundred end users, we implemented a Fleet Management application. The project incorporated not only the complexities of implementing the software itself but also managing a translation process and large number of interfaces. The project was delivered on-time, to budget and to the customer specification.

For a major UK rail operator with 3 large depots and a number of outstations and a fleet of over 300 trains, we implemented a Fleet Management application that included all elements of workshop control, stock management and procurement.

Trackside Condition Monitoring System – Implementation
Developing highly effective implementation programmes to deliver installation of sophisticated condition monitoring systems in European locations.

Asset Management System – Interfaces
We have experience in developing and successfully implementing a wide variety of interfaces including; Operational systems such as Genius, Finance systems such as Oracle, Coda and Open Accounts as well as Human Resources packages and complex workflow solutions.

Asset Management System – Re-Implementations
Working for a UK asset management solution provider, we won an internal award for turning around the development and implementation of their asset management software tool. The end customer was preparing to revert back to legacy applications and spreadsheets. With our assistance, within three months the implementation was a success and we were able to provide the company with an outstanding reference site.

One of our major clients recently asked us to revitalise a failing implementation for one of their key accounts. The project involved process improvements, technical enhancements and a reduced re-implementation. Again, the project was successfully completed.
