Hewden, the UK’s largest multi-product hire specialist, has successfully implemented its business wide enterprise resource planning (ERP) project with leading business software solutions provider, m-hance.
Hewden selected an integrated ERP and CRM software solution from m-hance in order to increase organisational efficiency and support the business’s plans for growth. The latest phase of Hewden’s multi-million pound project represents one of the biggest UK Microsoft Dynamics AX implementations in recent times with over 800 core users and a further 150 CRM users.
Darren Woods, CFO and Project Sponsor at Hewden, comments, “We have ambitious growth plans and the success of this project is a key enabler. We were clear from the outset that we wanted a system which would help us deliver an improved customer service, and one which our employees would find easy to use. Given these requirements we decided to invest in m-hance’s flexible, scalable and user-friendly MS Dynamics solution.”
Woods continues, "The business transformation project is currently progressing smoothly and will see us replace our outdated and bespoke systems before year end. This latest investment underlines our commitment to working closely with m-hance in order to support the continued and future growth of our business. By replacing inefficient standalone systems, we will gain real-time visibility of management information and a single version of the truth in relation to our customers and financial data giving us more meaningful information that we can act on.”
Woods adds, “The user-friendliness of m-hance’s solution will transform the efficiency of our 1,000 employees and help to remove many of the obstacles they currently face in their day-to-day jobs. This will free them up to provide further value to our customers.”
