Our Clients

Our clients range in size from one person operations through to global corporations. Find out more about my work with them and the results I achieved.


Who I Work With

I have had the privilege of working with an exciting range of clients from around the world and they range from micro businesses through to global corporations and brands. The projects I have completed for them vary from tide prediction systems through to tools that manage over $500m of hedge funds.

My reputation for producing results where others have failed, has resulted in me gaining clients from all over the world. Over 80% of them becoming repeat clients.

Who I Don’t Work With

I’m very active when it comes to humanitarian causes. I was one of the first civilians in to Kosovo after the NATO intervention and I have campaigned for children’s rights around the globe. I carry these ethics in to my work, so I do not work for governments with poor human rights records or for companies directly associated with such governments.

The Company

Bowater Price plc are vehicle leasing specialists based in High Wycombe in the UK. They supply leased vehicles to the public and businesses across the UK and are one of the UK’s most established names in vehicle leasing.

The Challenge

Bowater Price were swamped in ratebooks provided by the major funders. Each funder provided their ratebooks in different formats containing differing vehicle descriptions and data. This made finding the best deals on a specific vehicle, mileage, initial payment and term combination a slow, manual processes.

Our Solution

We have provided Bowater Price with several tools that have helped them automate their processes. These include tools to commonise funders data, apply mark ups/discounts, reprice maintenance options and to complete incomplete data.

The Results

Our tools have enabled Bowater Price to offer their clients better deals, increase ancillary sales and to save over 200 hours a month.

Oliver Marketing

Data Gathering Tool
The Company

The Oliver Group are a group of marketing companies based in London with offices around the globe. Their clients include Hasbro, Pepsico, Starbucks, Virgin and BMW.

The Challenge

Oliver needed a method to get product and calorie information to a large chain of coffee shops around Europe. They also needed a way to get local pricing information back from the store. This was complicated by a huge range of SKUs, with each country having a different range of SKUs with products described in different languages.

Our Solution

We developed a three-stage tool that simplified the process. It automatically generated SKUs and calorie file for each of the stores. Each store then sent the file back complete with their local pricing information. A central tool then collated these files for uploading into Oliver’s central database.

The Results

Benefits included faster distribution of SKU, description and calorie information. Faster gathering of local pricing data from each of the shops. The tool also saved Oliver over 600 hours a year and greatly reduced errors.

The Company

Corporate Citizenship are a global management consultancy specialising in sustainability and corporate responsibility. They work with corporations around the world to achieve their commitments to responsible business behaviours and sustainable practices.

The Challenge

Each of Corporate Citizenships clients gather data on resources and money donated to charitable causes. Each month this data is collated in Corporate Citizenship’s London office, where they draw up a monthly report based on 36 KPIs. As their client list grew and their clients giving increased this became a long manual process.

Our Solution

We built a two-part tool to gather and report on their data. This automated the process and eliminated over 90% of the human errors that entered their data as a result of their manual process. Each satellite office was issued with a data gathering tool which connected to a collating tool in their London office. The collating tool also automated the production of their KPI reports.

The Results

The tool saved each satellite office dozens of hours a month and Corporate Citizenship’s London office over 120 hours a month. Data entry and processing errors were reduced by over 90%. The tool was so well received; we were commissioned to upgrade the tool to be multi-lingual with 14 different languages.

Weedon PSC

Weedon PSC

Production Planning Tool
The Company

Weedon PSC is the UK’s leading manufacturer of Retail Ready Packaging (RRP) and Point of Sale (POS) displays. Their annual turnover is over £10 million. The company is part of the Weedon Group which also includes Weedon Corrugated Products and i2ieurope.

The Challenge

Weedon PSC’s production facility worked both on normal orders and just in time (JIT) orders from the large supermarkets. This made production planning and scheduling very difficult. Orders already in production often had to give way to JIT orders. This was further complicated due to Weedon PSC’s requirement to order supplies on a JIT basis, which was due to a lack of storage space.

Our Solution

We developed an Excel based production planning and scheduling tool that allowed them to enter details of incoming jobs, build Bill of Materials (BOM) and plan which production facilities to use for each job. The work could be planned manually using a graphical interface or by selecting an automatic option.

The Results

Weedon PSC saw many benefits to this tool including faster and more effective planning. Other benefits included the ability to make live updates to the planning, improved their ability to work on JIT orders, reduced errors and increased manufacturing efficiency.

The Company

Autorama is a multi-award winning vehicle leasing business based in Hertfordshire in the UK. They provide personal and commercial vehicles nationally via several brands including Autorama, Vanarama and Pick Up Trucks Direct.

The Challenge

Autorama provide vehicle leases on 30,000 different vehicles, from 10 different funders, resulting in the need to assess over 70 million pricing combinations to find the best deals for their clients. Each funder provided their ratebooks in different formats, making comparisons a long slow, manual and error prone process.

Our Solution

We developed a tool that allowed Autorama to automatically commonise their funders data and to find the best deals for their clients. Once the data was processed in to a common format another part of the tool allowed Autorama to apply mark ups, discounts and other price manipulations. This then made finding the best deals a simple process.

The Results

Overall processing time was reduced from 1 week to 1 hour. As this had to be done several times a month, this saved Autorama between 4,000 and 5,000 hours a year. The helped them easily identify the 5 best deals for each vehicle – this meant if a client was not accepted by the lowest cost funder they could move on to the next one.

TT ELectronics

TT Electronics

Purchasing Scheduling Tool
The Company

TT Electronics build military and avionic grade wiring looms and connectors for aeronautical, military and transport clients around the world. Their flexible and accredited manufacturing facilities ensure they are the preferred choice in a global market.

The Challenge

Each item TT Electronics produced had its own Bill of Materials (BOM) from which a purchasing / stock requirement could be built. With a large order book, keeping track of purchasing / stock requirements became too difficult for standard systems to handle. This made, amalgamating and tracking their stock requirements very difficult.

Our Solution

We developed a multi-stage tool. The first stage allowed the user to build quotations and combine them with known BOMs and building new BOMs. The second stage allowed the user to convert quotes in to orders complete with delivery dates. The final stage produced a purchasing schedule of materials that included known order lead times.

The Results

By fully automating their quote and costing process we tool helped TT Electronics save 1,200 hours per year. Other benefits included the elimination of their paper based costing and quotation system, which in turn increased quotation and costing accuracy.

The Company

MGN Fire Protection are specialists in intumescent coatings, industrial coatings and fire stopping/air sealing systems. They also undertake areas of fire boarding. They are based in the Northumberland with regional offices in Manchester and London.

The Challenge

MGN Fire Protection are contracted to work on sites around the UK and although most of the work is fixed contract work, their clients often require them to carry out additional ad-hoc work. Keeping track of this ad-hoc work and the materials used was proving problematic with lots of emails being passed back and fore.

Our Solution

We developed a contract management tool that was flexible enough to manage both their fixed contact work and their ad-hoc work. Staff in their office were able to enter and track their standard work. Management working on site could enter details of ad-hoc work. This was combined in a central tool ready for invoice preparation.

The Results

The tool reduced human errors by 90% by making data entry quicker and simpler. Large savings were made by better utilising of stock and employees time. After completing this project, I went on to help MGN Fire Protection automate other areas of their business.

Amazing Support

Amazing Support

Customer Analysis Tool
The Company

The Amazing Support Company are an IT support and infrastructure business based in London / the Bedfordshire area. Their services include IT support, disaster recovery, cloud solutions and large IT projects such as server and workstation migration projects.

The Challenge

Amazing support needed a way to determine which clients were profitable and which were costing more than the revenue they were generating. This would allow them to adjust the cost of their maintenance contracts on a client by client basis.

Our Solution

We built an automated tool that imported their client data from their accounting system and their CRM system. From this I was able to build dynamic reports which could breakdown profitability by sector, type of hardware owned, age of hardware, the number of call outs and cost v’s income.

The Results

The tool allowed Amazing Support to save over 120 hours per year. The tool allowed the Amazing Support Company to easily identify which clients were producing profits and which were costing them money.

The Company

ALUK are manufacturers of innovative aluminium building systems for the construction industry. They supply aluminium building systems that include curtain walls, windows, doors and sliding/folding doors. They have a turnover of more than £15m a year.

The Challenge

When ALUK rapidly expanded across the UK and Europe, they invested in a new stock control system to manage their hundreds of thousands of products. Unfortunately, their new system was incompatible with their old system. They needed a way of quickly converting data from their old system in to a format that was suitable for their new system.

Our Solution

We created a tool that took the data from their old system and automatically converted it in to a format suitable for their new system. This required breaking down sub assemblies and assemblies so their components could be converted as well.

The Results

The tool allowed ALUK to avoid an estimated 3,500 hours of manual processing. The tool also allowed ALUK to identify and eliminate over 95% of the errors in their existing data.
