The Access Group – ERP in the Midlands

We have spoken before about how we are “Midlands and proud” and we thought we would post about a company we work with who are also Midlands based, they have multiple offices across the UK but the teams in Midlands are the ones we deal regularly with.

Access is a group who provide ERP. 2 of the modules within that ecosystem are Factory Master and Delta who are based in Nuneaton and Coventry respectively.

We are not going to try and plug the system or sell it to anyone there are many ERP systems this is one of them, but we did want to recognise and mention the teams we work with.

There is something very nice about dealing with specialists who are local enough to come into the office and be at the end of a phone, it’s something we believe in massively.

Having a name and a face we can work with we believe builds a stronger relationship, team and ultimately better result for the business.

It’s getting increasingly rarer to see companies staying in the UK and especially regionally, so we just wanted to show our gratitude to local specialists who know their stuff!

So big thumbs up to the Nuneaton and Coventry teams and just to say we enjoy working with them!

Business in the Midlands

We have been providing IT support to the Midlands since before the recession, during, and what we feel after (even if double/triple dips). We see clients from small to large and while it hasn’t been easy for everyone, we believe a lot of companies have come out of things a lot stronger.

Some of our clients have had to adapt and change what they do, others have had to streamline, others have had to gamble and take on as much as possible to come out of things what can only be described as booming!

We also work with start-ups and new businesses, and while we have seen some struggle, we have seen others fill gaps in the markets and even create new markets, we are very proud to say some of our clients and friends really are thriving with a whole new zest and passion for their businesses and life.

Kixo started in 2009 towards the beginning of the recession, because we saw there was a better way of providing IT support to people. We feared for our jobs security at existing companies because service was slipping and clients money was getting tighter. Rightfully so, bad service simply could not be tolerated, in the middle of a recession we quit our jobs to start Kixo.

As a more streamlined company, we could look after clients IT needs and support them without having a high turnover of engineers, team leaders and ten different managers. So for us streamlining was best practice from day 1. For both us and our clients things are best when they are simple and personal.

Five years on and our clients and Kixo are growing, not too fast and making sure to stay personal and streamlined. Things have been tough but looking around the Midlands now we see it’s a great time to be in business in the Midlands!
