BSS Industrial is a specialist distributor of pipeline, heating and ventilation products serving customers across all industrial sectors within the UK and Ireland. The Core Systems Replacement Programme is focused on the replacement of some of the existing systems with a package application (Kerridge K8) which will make additional functionality available, and match the growth plans for the Group.
The programme has adopted a phased implementation and rollout approach to minimise the net change impact on the business whilst maximising the level of client-feedback which can be used to ensure an evolution of the rollout process.
LOC Consulting were engaged by the board to review the programme at agreed, critical milestones using our proven programme healthcheck approach. This provides an independent view of the programme, highlighting key risks, issues and recommendations as well as defining alternate approaches to ensure delivery of the expected benefits upon which the business case is built. The initial review adopted a two stage approach:
- Stage 1 - Programme Review and Analysis of Findings
- Stage 2 – Recommendations
The LOC Healthcheck takes a pragmatic approach to delivery, assessing the application of programme management best practice against the needs of the business, the defined budget, the required quality as well as the day-to-day business challenges.
LOC Consulting have successfully completed four reviews, aligned with key programme milestones which provided guidance and ensured delivery success.
