“Growth is never by mere chance; it is the result of forces working together.” – James Cash Penney, Founder JC Penney
As part of my job I have the privilege of getting to sit down with businesses throughout Northern Ireland that span many different industries, from construction to manufacturing to services. Something that is common across them all right now is the desire to grow their businesses and it is happening. It is truly humbling as I get the honour of hearing the stories of companies in Northern Ireland who have grown over the last few decades and still have the desire to do more. In Nitec our heart beats with the success of our clients and so to hear these stories resonates with us and brings us a feeling of success too.
Growth is happening
As the quote above illustrates this growth in these companies has not happened by mere chance. Many different forces have been in place to make it happen. At times some of these forces were outside of the control of the company e.g. currency rates, a growing economy or the price of a raw material. However, often these forces come from within the company as Northern Ireland men and women dream dreams and work to bring them to reality by offering products and services that are distinctive, high quality and right for our time. Growth is more often planned than stumbled upon.
However, as these companies have grown the business processes that back up this new growth have started to creak. Perhaps while they were smaller a series of access databases, excel sheets and talented staff were able to keep track of quotes, orders, production, delivery and invoicing. Experienced men and women knew instinctively which products were making good money and which clients were good to deal with. But as the information, staff, work and customers all increased this became less possible and started to become a barrier to growth. To continue to realize this growth better systems were needed.
Partnering with Nitec
This is where we at Nitec fit in. We are another one of the forces that can work with your company to realize positive, profitable change. Our Software Development team are now working with several companies to create bespoke software systems that resonate with their innovation. Systems that allow them to realize the growth they desire and get their product or service to more people in a profitable way. We are helping them to analyse their business processes to see how information should flow through their company in a secure, accountable and efficient manner that causes the least amount of friction and allows business knowledge to be not only owned by the company but visible to those that need to see it. We are partnering with these companies to help them grow.
This process is not always easy, but it is beneficial and in the world we live in it’s an essential change in a modern company. If you would like to have a chat and hear more about what we can do for you, please get in touch.
