Independent systems consultancy

Truly Independent ERP System Selection support you can trust

Modern IT systems are flexible and offer broad functionality.

There is an ever increasing market of new systems and resellers promising the world.

This makes choosing a new system a daunting prospect for most businesses.

To make things worse, research shows that most businesses do not achieve the expected benefit from their IT investments.

As a result of this, and perhaps their own bad experiences, many businesses decide to "make do" with ageing legacy systems, despite their shortcomings, rather than risk the cost, disruption and pain involved in selecting and implementing a new system.

Our role is to help you through this process, avoid the pitfalls involved, and to successfully select and implement the right systems to support your business and its future growth.

Our Approach

Fundamentally, we do not take on a "systems project".

To successfully select and implement a modern IT system that delivers tangible business benefit, requires a holistic approach.

This is where we feel we, as business and management consultants, are a different to other ERP consultancies, who focus only on systems.

We utilise our broader skills, to consider:

  • Strategy - your goals and objectives - what you are looking to achieve as a business
  • Processes - opportunities for improving existing ways of working that can help you achieve your goals
  • People - potential changes to the organisational structure and skills within the business that may be needed
  • Change management - a plan for managing the impact this will have on the people within your business 
  • Systems - finally, the supporting technology requirements to support everything above

By considering all of these critical aspects, we help you to de-risk the project and maximise the potential benefits possible.

True Independence

In the ever-increasing IT marketplace, many vendors are offering consultants referral fees for successful contracts, so obtaining a truly independent viewpoint is becoming harder for clients to find.

By working with AHC, you can be assured of the independence you are looking for. Whilst we have an excellent relationship with all the leading software providers, we do not have any affiliation with them and never accept referral fees.

Examples of projects we get involved in:

  • Systems health checks
  • System upgrade / migration / replacement decisions and business case development
  • ERP system selection - requirements specification, system/vendor evaluation,contract negotiation
  • ERP Implementation project management
  • Change management support
  • Post implementation audits
  • Project rescue / salvage

We have provided some example case studies below, but please contact us to discuss your requirements and how we can potentially help.
