Case Study: How Belgrave & Powell Gained Visibility & Control, Quickly & Easily


Belgrave & Powell are a relatively small, flexible and agile group, who are passionate about Engineering, taking a very 'hands on' approach to developing their businesses.

Their team comes with a wealth of international experience across the Automotive, Aerospace, Defence, Power Generation & Distribution, Steel Processing, Rail and Infrastructure sectors.

The group includes the following manufacturing businesses:

  • Maydown International Tools Limited
  • GAC Rail Limited
  • Dean Smith & Grace
  • Techni-Grind (Preston) Limited
  • Addison Forming Technologies Limited
  • Autotech Robotics Limited.

The Challenge

B&P were looking for an MRP package related to multiple acquisitions that could be quickly and easily adopted. With new acquisitions, it was important for them to gain visibility and control within weeks not months. They found the competitor products couldn’t respond quickly enough and those with integration partners were talking months, before they could even look at their request.


B&P came across Quickworks, designed specifically for small agile manufacturers, which they found to be the ideal solution. It was a leap of faith by B&P, as Quickworks was a relatively new entrant to the market, but they were up and running quickly with minimal aggravation and cost.


The key outcomes of implementing QuickWorks have been;

  • Quick to adopt and get going
  • Easy to use system - from quote through to invoice
  • Reduction in manual data entry
  • Real time information for decision making, giving visibility to all
  • Full traceability, making ISO compliance easy
  • Simple links to accountancy packages
  • No upfront costs



"I’d thoroughly recommend QuickWorks to SME businesses seeking an easy-to-use MRP package that reduces manual data input, provides easy workflow and traceability from quote, to order, to route card to invoice. Great team and great product."
