MIS brought six-fold increase in business growth

“Phil Cox started working with Harrison Packaging more than a decade ago, when Management Information Systems (MIS) were becoming more advanced.

We decided to improve our MIS due to growth of our business. It’s important to keep up with technology breakthroughs, and at the time we engaged Phil we were looking to increase the company turnover by a significant amount.

To do this, we needed to be very much in control of costs and know our customers’ revenues. Accuracy and making the correct decisions in this business are very important, and good information management allows us to make well-informed decisions.

Phil’s work for us included implementing programmes for estimations and quotes through to delivery and invoice-payment, as well as for stock control and fulfilment.

We developed these systems with Phil to fit our requirements. To have someone to facilitate the implementation of software made our lives easier and enabled us to make the most of all the different facilities it offered.

We have seen a six-fold growth of our business since the implementation of our MIS, while the Harrison Packaging administration team has only had to grow by 25%. It has saved us money in the long term.”
