What we did
We started working with Lupton & Place to understand their business ambitions and discovered that they had a clear vision of what they wanted their system to achieve. We reviewed their existing FileMaker system (developed 30 years ago) and deployed a plan which rapidly improved, simplified and digitised processes, eliminating sources of manual error.
We empowered the business by integrating their data systems, giving them the visibility they need to make informed decisions. Today the system tracks the whole manufacturing process: from material delivery through to order creation; from production data through to order dispatch. The Lupton & Place team can sort, filter and view the status of each customer order easily. We also overhauled the database design, prioritising a modernised, improved user workflow – you can navigate to linked areas of the system at the click of a button.
The drive for improvement continues and we provide ongoing support to Lupton & Place. We have restructured their data to prepare for future growth and transformed their stock control system. Movement of stock items across the factory site is digitised, and live data collected through stock code scanning. This project has led to improved forecasting for Lupton & Place and transformed the business.
