How are fractional services priced?
Fractional ERP PM services are changed on a daily rate, fixed price against deliverables, or as a retainer.
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 including SAP, Oracle NetSuite, Microsoft Dynamics, Sage 200, Access Dimensions, & Intact IQ.
What geographic area do we cover?
We are based in Southwest England, and we deliver our services either fully onsite, hybrid or fully remote, making use of Microsoft Teams and specialist online project management software to facilitate collaborative working. Although Southwest England focussed, we travel to client sites across the UK and Internationally by arrangement.
What projects have we delivered?
Client project delivery completed for Hanson Heidelberg Cement, 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.
