10 years is an exciting milestone to have reached in business. A lot of project miles (and meetings) are now under our collective belts. I started with the objective of ‘interesting work with great people’ and am incredibly grateful that the 6R team get to work with great people on interesting projects (and interesting people on great projects).

Over the last 10 years, we’ve examined our success and failure and strived to do all we can to learn as much as possible from both.

6R Projects that work

We deliver projects, but we focus on more than getting the technology working. We go beyond the implementation of tech and focus on business benefits to the client and their teams. We work in partnership with our clients to manage and deliver projects with a focus on strategy and business benefit.

Words of praise

We work to build good relationships with our clients and the project teams we work with. It’s incredibly valuable to get feedback on what’s working (and what’s not). We build that into our working process to continue to improve. 

“Thank you and Rob, you have been such an important difference in launching our United Ecommerce project, we could not have got there without your efforts. We appreciate all your hard work, sanity and advice. We really have enjoyed working with you and I am sure will work with you again on future projects. Keep well through these difficult times and stay in touch Thank you again for everything – working with you made all the difference and guaranteed its successful launch”

Alla Buinowicz

Taking Shape, Managing Director

We started work with 6r during a challenging period where to maintain the businesses revenues we needed to implement Ship from Store processes in a very short time frame. 6r oversaw the whole project and ensured that all stakeholders understood what needed to be done while meeting a deadline of 11 days

when you work with us

ALLEGIANCE

Maybe you have worked with external project managers before and it didn’t work out? Software vendors like to win clients through partners who recommend their product or service. In return they pay commission.

We don’t take commissions from software vendors, we are 100% software agnostic and can work with whichever systems you have chosen.

If you’re looking for a system, we can help you.

We can guide you with things to consider things to look out for, but in no way, will we ever seek to influence your choice.

It’s your team and your business that must work with the system long term.

That means it’s your choice.

 

I’d like to find out more

ALIGNMENT

Project management used to be all about Gantt charts, timelines and procedures (and very long documents).

Whilst these tools (and documents) are important, the underlying alignment to strategy is what makes a project worthwhile.

If people see the value and the vision they’re more likely to put effort into making the project work.

At 6R we are focused on delivering systems that work well and sharing knowledge about process with businesses in ways that help to leverage technology and improve profit.

Evaluating and Selecting the Best ERP System

No one wants to do an ERP implementation. It’s a whole lotta pain and a whole lotta work for something that is often not a lot of customer facing joy. In fact, we have seen clients procrastinate and turn a blind eye to all the additional systems that they have had to...
