Zenith Logistics – Case Study

Zenith is an exciting, new and rapidly growing innovator in the supply chain industry. Formed by industry professionals with proven credentials and years of blue chip experience.

The Challenge

Managing the company’s purchase orders on multiple sites through spreadsheets was proving difficult and inefficient. A database application was needed that helped manage the current operation and was ready for future growth of the business.

The Solution

Amethyst Systems developed a web application that enabled the logging of purchase orders (POs) but also offered all the additional required functionality. The system was produced in a matter of weeks.

The application we provided assists Zenith staff with recording purchase orders and eradicating the possibility of any mistake or misuse. Depending on the security level of
the user logged in to the system, that user will only be able to perform specific tasks.

“Amethyst Systems have delivered a system that makes the creation and management of POs much more efficient and less prone to errors. Having the website hosted and supported with full backups of data is also very reassuring.” Colin Newnes, Financial Controller.

Key Benefits

Ramsdens Solicitors

“Ramsdens solicitors had grown over the years and so did our deeds database! Unfortunately, we only had access to the database for a single user so we employed Amethyst to take it from a single user access solution to a user-friendly web interface to service 150 staff using Microsoft core web and database technologies. We are very pleased with the work and the new solution even had some bells and whistles that we hadn’t thought about.” – Jamie Watson, IT Manager, Ramsdens Solicitors.


“Amethyst Systems have again quickly delivered a simple, responsive and effective application. Our new software greatly helps us to manage our many energy efficiency projects and provides clients with immediate access to their project(s) status. The reporting suite helps to effectively view project status (Gantt chart) and also shows ROI to clients.” – Patrick Haslam, Programme Manager, Sigma.


“Amethyst Systems has exceeded our expectations and delivered a fantastic system, on time and over specification. This system is invaluable to us and will underpin the sales and marketing activity of over 30 sales people, 250,000 prospects and 15,000 customers. I can’t recommend Amethyst Systems attitude, approach and delivery highly enough.” Andy Greening, Managing Director – OfficeScape Ltd.
