Having invested in an asset management IT system, Agro Merchants Lurgan came to realise that the system was being underutilised. There were many functions that the company was merely scratching the surface of, and others that it didn’t use at all, plus the sheer volume of data that could be extracted had become overwhelming.
Genie Insights set out a strategy to properly introduce the system and then managed a structured approach to the full roll out, including:
- Liaising with the software developer to ‘unlock’ new modules and to configure existing ones to suit the specific requirements of the Agro business
- Liaising with all Agro suppliers to gather and import all required external data
- Working closely with staff in all Agro departments, including the workshop, parts, planning, compliance, HR, IT and accounts, to ensure that all users were trained and confident in the use of the system, and that it was providing everything needed
- Creating bespoke reports to provide all output data in a manageable and tailored format.
“Having worked closely with Matt at Genie Insights over the last number of months on the implementation of our asset management system, I have been continually impressed by his understanding of our business and his evident knowledge of the transport industry in general. The completed system has provided full visibility of all vehicle costs, full traceability for vehicle compliance, and the ability to identify any asset risk to the business, which in turn has delivered cost savings due to better efficiency and planning. Matt has become a trusted and integral partner to our business.”
