We used WBS Group because we had worked well together with them in the past.
When we looked to transfer our activities to Ireland, we needed to bring in outside help as nobody in our company knew how to organise the transfer.
We worked together to assess current state and future state. WBS Group spent time structuring the transfer, putting plans together, identifying the tasks – they did all the background work. They gathered all the technical information, translated it and communicated it to us. Their reporting was very interesting and fact based so everyone could understand without complicated wording. They had a great technical grasp of the subject and were able to translate the technical data into graphics and words thereby helping us to understand the process in a controlled manner. The team worked well together and complemented each other’s skills - one consultant was the ‘eyes and ears’ on the shop floor, whilst another brought in the systems.
I’m still using what they taught me today, they really taught me a lot and in helping us understand the process in detail, we avoided the mistake of drawing conclusions too fast.
The big difference with WBS Group is they do all the research, assessment and evaluation but they are ‘working consultants’ who then start trying to fix the problem by implementing solutions – rather than overloading the client with the information to try and fix themselves.
There were hectic, awkward times in the transfer with difficult underground currents. Management changes here didn’t help but throughout WBS Group were consistent in their professional approach and they really did stick to their guns to deliver against our objectives.
