As is customary for the timing of Economit ‘new starter’ blogs I am writing this as I am just coming up to the six-month point of my employment. I suppose the advantage with being this late in writing is that it has given me the opportunity to better take stock of everything… from my role, to the team internally, to our customers, to Economit and where we are heading.
I have performed a variety of Project Management roles in the past but this is the first time for a while that I am solely responsible for delivering projects, both internally to the business and externally to our clients. This is really beneficial as it is allowing me to focus on driving improvements to the business and also hopefully delivering projects on time to our clients, without any conflicts or distractions.
Due to the busy nature of the business time has definitely flown by and it is only on the rare moments when you get the chance to look back that you realise the changes that have taken place and the distance that we have come. In my time new CRM, quoting and finance systems have been purchased, implemented, tested and are now in full flight… the team has grown and two new starters have joined (one of which has already beaten me in writing a blog!)… a number of client projects have been successfully delivered… new clients have been brought on board and the list goes on!!
I’m definitely looking forward to the next 6 months and can only see good things happening so watch this space.
