This project was exemplary. It has certainly been recognised as an example of best practice with the AB Agri Group of companies.
The consultants are very good at what they do. I tend to go with their recommendations, because I strongly believe that they understand our business and know what they are doing.
Sword IT Solutions quickly stabilised the system, moving us in the right direction. Since the system became more reliable, we have seen improvements in data quality and reporting and got us up and running quickly.
One thing I really value about Sword ITS is the consultants’ honesty.
Based on an excellent level of service over the last 18 months, we now consider Sword ITS to be our strategic partner of choice when we need deep technical or architectural insight.
We are well on the way to achieving significant efficiencies in our central departments…
What Sword ITS enabled us to do was to unlock the dilemma of delivering the design and functional changes we had to make before the peak trading window, whilst making the most of the existing architecture in order to keep our options open…
The Sword ITS consultant was very highly skilled and performed to an exceptionally high standard.
Sword ITS challenged some perceived orthodoxies around our customer and order data. We began to see how Customer Centric principles could be applied in a real world context. It helped us get the working mix right and for people to see tangible results early on. The team began to realise that unlike some “strategy” exercises they had been involved in before, this time they were going to get something of value they could really make use of in a day to day trading context.
The project went live on time and on budget. The Sword ITS consultants are very professional, knowledgable and easy to work with.
We chose Sword based on their experience in the energy industry and their track record with North Sea asset transfers, and it proved to be a good choice. We are delighted with the results they have achieved in this transition and we look forward to continuing our partnership.
