In 2014 I was approached by Gary Howells, a director of the glazing firm Howells Patent Glazing. He explained primarily he wanted a new system to manage enquiries from customers and then follow the process through to the completed job. After the initial job was complete, Howells Glazing where extremely happy with the result and went on to hire me for the course of two years. During this time I worked in house and remotely as new features and functionality where added to the system upon request. The final result today is a completely bespoke piece of web software that manages the entire production aspect of the company and hooks into other web software such as their CRM.
As a manufacturing company we decided to change the way that we procure and control manufacturing. There were no programs currently on the market that could accurately record and manage manufacturing schedules. We also required the program to manage our estimates and quotations. Tom came on board to program a bespoke system tailored exactly to our needs. He made the program following a detailed discussion with the department heads and then developed it over a period of time, added extra functionally as necessary. Tom was helpful and presented us with a system that worked, can be upgraded and will work with our existing prebuilt CRM system flawlessly.
