Agile Development Manager at i-solutions global ltd
January 2012-June 2012
IT Development Manager at SP Group
November 2005-December 2011
Main duties involve managing and running a team of developers and analysts of around 4 to 5 team members to ensure the delivery of internal and client facing projects. The main software project has been an automated artwork generation and client workflow tool to enable clients to manage and adapt their own workflow to creating variable data print orders. Working with large clients such as Boots, Wilkinson and Spar to fully integrate their business systems into a streamlined automated process for generating artwork for in store promotions. The product’s return on investment has been massive, not only in saving the company a substantial amount of money but also vastly reducing the client reaction to market times as they can now manage their own promotional material in real time and online. Other main duties involve the analysis and process creation of many of the key business systems within the supply chain manufacture route the business requires. This involves the design and implementation of business processes utilising and deploying key business software solutions. One major achievement has been in the warehousing and fulfilment departments where major work has been carried out on implementing and utilising a tier 1 WMS solution (Red Prairie DLx Dispatcher) to streamline the order fulfilment and logistics processes, providing substantial company savings to bottom line costs. Another key part of the role is to offer consultancy to large clients such as M&S, Boots, Sainsburys, Asda, Wilkinson, Spar, etc. on best working practices for direct business to business communication and to move away from the old fashioned “Excel Spreadsheet” transfer of data between companies.
