After around three decades of trading, Logoshack wanted to increase its productivity and have more access to data to allow it to fulfil its plans for growth.
The company realised it needed to enhance visibility with a central system connecting the whole business to become a data-driven manufacturer.
Although Logoshack is able to fulfil customer requirements to high quality, it stores much of its information on different systems. Orders, job progress reports and invoices were recorded by staff on job sheets, spreadsheets and databases.
Logoshack needed to find a way to speed up these processes in order to meet its growth targets. Lauren had heard of ERP systems and thought they might be the solution her business needed, so she contacted the Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire Growth Hub.
She said: “We recognised that implementing a central system to enhance visibility, track manufacturing orders in real-time and analyse our manufacturing processes is vital in taking us to the next level.
“The amount of data that we would have at our fingertips is invaluable and would allow us to make data-driven decisions to better the business as a whole.
“After raising this with the Growth Hub, we were contacted by Made Smarter expert Tim Kirby, who got everything started.”
