Apreco had gained a strong foothold in the healthcare and energy sectors thanks to its innovative products having several patents to their name.
Its four different systems that were not integrated with each other meant time was lost putting data from one system into another system, typically with double or even triple entry of the same data.
To really take the business to the next level, Apreco needed a smart, unified system that was consistent across all aspects of its operations.
Apreco researched possible software companies that could fulfil this brief, and came across Redditch-based firm MIE Solutions that might be able to help.
Sophie said: “We had researched MIE Solutions and felt like it might be the best company to help improve our software. By coincidence, we attended manufacturing supply chain show Subcon in 2021 and came across Made Smarter there.
“We heard about how Made Smarter can help businesses adopt the latest digital technology and earn grants to help pay for it, which piqued our interest. The timing was perfect.
“After an initial chat, we organised for Made Smarter to come and visit Apreco so we could talk through exactly what we needed.”
