How much does a fractional PM cost?
Fractional ERP PM services cost from £750 per day and projects range from four days per month to twenty, giving you the flexibility to flex the costs against the phasing of the project, providing greater value for money and a more focussed engagement.
Do we only work with specific industry sectors?
No - SWCIO are industry type agnostic - our typical client is growing, has outgrown it’s current system and has identified a requirement for external help. We can either be engaged to develop ERP strategy and selection, at the point of project initiation, or to recover stalled projects.
Do we work with specific ERP software?
No - we are software agnostic. The ERP software vendor and version is not important to our delivery, and we have delivered projects on SAP, Oracle NetSuite, MS Dynamics, Sage, Access Dimensions, Intact IQ to name a few.
What geographic area do we cover?
We deliver our services either hybrid or fully remote, making use of Microsoft Teams and specialist online project management software. Note, for hybrid projects our fees are travel cost inclusive when we work across the South of England and Wales, with travel further afield and internationally by arrangement. For fully remote projects, we work globally.
What projects have we delivered?
Client project delivery completed for Hanson Aggregates, Chemring plc, AMP Clean Energy, The Shoal Group, Computer Associates, Trunki (Magma Mouldings), Vexcolt, Alderman Tooling. Full references are available.
Do we work on our own or as part of a team?
All projects are collaborative by their nature. We bring together and communicate with your internal and external resources to execute efficiently. A typical project will see us working very closely with your internal teams, the software vendor teams, and internal or external technical infrastructure teams. As the lead of the project steering committee that we will establish, we work closely with your senior management team.
