The wheel, steam power and electricity has brought about significant change, the benefits of adopting digital technology is not always obvious in the beginning - it took over 25 years for electricity to realise significant benefits over that of steam power.

Digitalisation like electricity, has been cited for years and has gained much traction in social media, logistics and other areas.  SMEs are dynamic, not held back when change is required - could you do with another perspective to spot more potential in your business?  


Or might you face the strategic challenge with a key customer who is digitalising their supply chain and will require your business to do so too. It could be the difference between growth & survival.  We can help.

I partner with IOT Horizons & Network Science to access diverse expertise and supplier-base to help deliver the right solution - SME to large multi-nationals - there's a solution for all challenges.


Is there an aspect of your business which continues to sap your resources and affects other functions of your business processes.  By opening up and exploring the possibilities of Operations, Lean and Digitalisation (Industry 4.0), it may unstick that hurdle to progress.  Through a process of scoping, identifying options and planning the way forward, you can begin to work smarter on the business, not become absorbed by the business.

I worked with Rob closely while he was championing digitalisation at an SME. Rob is a fantastic leader and I would consider him someone who gets things done, he doesn't just talk about it. He is a strategic thinker and is able to solve problems that are thrown at him. Hope to work with you again in the near future and I know wherever you are, you will bring a lot of value with you.
