Need, the mother of invention

Whether through business acquisition, merger or demerger, significant restructuring of any organization presents opportunities to reinvigorate process and champion best practice. What’s more, if implemented correctly, considerable time and cost efficiencies can be achieved.

Here, Bruce Gardner for NSL recalls how need really was the mother of invention for the business. In addition, he explains how the system that was developed has gone on to provide a platform for continued cost-savings across new NSL contracts.

Business critical situation

NSL is one of the biggest transport services businesses in the UK. The company is the largest provider of on-street parking management services in the country, working with over 40 local authorities and two government agencies as customers. The business also provides a range of transport and related services to public and private clients, such as debt recovery, CCTV monitoring, coach and patient transfer operations, notice processing and street design consultancy.

Although launched as a brand in 2009, NSL�s history goes back more than 75 years, originally as part of National Car Parks (NCP). Rapid growth and significant change in the new decade saw it demerge from NCP to NSL Services in 2007.

At that time, the company faced one of its biggest challenges to date. The solution to which ultimately led to its back office processes being revolutionised, providing immediate cost savings.

Enable attending Richmond Events FD Networking Forum

Build It BetterJuly 15, 2010

Enable are pleased to announce that we will, once again, be attending the highly successful FD Networking Forum organized by UK based events company, Richmond Events. The three day forum will take place later this year (13 -16 October) aboard the P&O flagship vessel, Arcadia.

Having attended previous events organized by Richmond, we look forward to three continuous days of valuable networking and pre-arranged business meetings with Finance Directors and CFO�s from some of Europe�s leading companies.

We have previously attended both IT Director and Finance Director-focussed events and found that the one-to-one networking / speed meeting format to be a highly effective platform for conveying the Enable message. It would take a great deal of time to generate such an audience through �cold calling� and more conventional lead generation means.

Enable specialises in the development of browser based business systems, often to replace legacy applications, Excel spreadsheets and Access databases that have become business critical. The c. 40 meetings over the course of three days not only gives us plenty of opportunity to perfect our pitch but also provides valuable insight into the problems that our prospective clients are currently facing in their day to day business.
