Enabling effective change.

Our experience.

We were well aware of the frightening statistics around failed ERP projects. And the dubious reputation that many consultancy firms get for high costs and not a lot of end product. And we knew we could do things differently, and better.

By delivering real change and forging relationships based on trust, reliability and accountability in our results.

We’ve achieved fast growth through new clients being referred to us in 85% of cases. And long lasting trusted partner status with our customers.

We formed Optimum through a shared desire and passion for delivering great results and an ethos built on hard work, taking responsibility and making things happen.
