Creasefield implement SAP Business By Design

After a challenging migration, we went live with our new cloud based ERP system in October – SAP Business By Design. The decision to upgrade to SAP was a huge one for us and demonstrates our commitment to use best of breed tools to run our business and partner with our most important customers and suppliers who also run SAP.

Significant benefits will begin filtering into all departments although the integration of finance, engineering, quality and sales functions into one integrated environment will leverage huge improvements for us. Reduced onsite maintenance and data securely stored offsite means we can focus all our efforts on designing and manufacturing battery packs.

SIRA Audit Success

ISO9001 & ISO14001 RE-CERTIFIED

23rd April 2013

Last week ended with a successful first audit from SIRA, our new approval body. The audit covered our annual surveillance of both ISO9001 and ISO14001, with some preparation for ISO18001 later in the year. The decision to partner with SIRA was easy – a world class organisation that allowed us to consolidate business systems and Atex QAR for enhanced capability and increased value for customers working in challenging industries. Their reputation speaks for itself and aligns perfectly with our valued customer base and activity with ATEX products. Please call us to discuss how Creasefield and SIRA can help you.
