“September was an exciting time for us with the introduction of the new ERP system software. This should make life at Omega much easier in the future by joining up systems throughout the business and various departments therefore cutting admin time in processing jobs. It is also a ‘real time’ system meaning that we can provide both ourselves and our customers with easy to digest reports on job progress, stock levels and resource. This is a real step change for Omega, and one that has seen a huge investment both in terms of financial and man hours to get it up and running – the team have worked really well alongside the guys from ECI to ensure a smooth transition at what is one of our busiest times. We are really excited by the flexibility and especially the efficiency that this should bring but not only that, the opportunities for reducing waste and cutting cost are endless! It is all part of our ongoing drive to meet the ever changing needs of the marketplace and deliver excellent customer service.
I have already seen some changes in the way people operate and manage projects! At the end of the day, I always say to our people it is about valuing the contribution that each of us makes and ensuring that Omega is a happy place to work. After all we all spend most of our waking hours here!! ‘
