Not making a change may be the worst thing you can do!
Change can be hard to manage, but we have extensive experience in helping you through the change to your processes so that you really do get the solution you need.
Read a recent opinion piece from our Managing Director, Lisa Miles, about managing change and how doing nothing may in fact be the worst thing that you can do.
“We were able to increase our turnover by 35% without the need to take on any more staff”
Our solution stopped the duplication and re-keying of data and enabled the current staff to handle the increase in orders.
“We were operating with 4 different softwares, none of which talked to each other and it was so difficult to get up to date information. I don’t like the phrase – joined up – but that is exactly what we now have and we love it. And now our information is available at a click of a button”
Integration with one existing software was essential for this client, the other three were able to be incorporated into the new solution.
“We completely automated our purchase ordering and procurement system – it was entirely manual before this. We were concerned that it was a big change for us, but Amethyst held our hands through the whole process”
“It took us a long while to make the decision to upgrade – but when we did, it wasn’t as scary as we thought and Amethyst’s experience shined through. We wish we had made the change so much earlier”
The Lowdown – supporting young people
Amethyst has been supporting The Lowdown, a Northamptonshire charity for young people, since 2007.
They offer a free and confidential drop in service six days a week in Northampton for young people aged 12 to 25 years old who are in distress or experiencing a crisis.
The Lowdown offers information, counselling and support on any issue including – relationships, sexual health, mental and physical health, eating disorders, anger, abuse, bereavement, accommodation and education.
Funding over the years for charities has become very difficult to obtain and few donors or organisations are keen to commit to any long term projects. The Lowdown works extremely hard each year to secure the funding they need so that they can continue to offer their services in Northamptonshire, but always need more help.
