Headquartered in Nuneaton, GRS Roadstone Group is Britain’s leading supply-chain partner for sourcing, production, transportation and processing of construction aggregates and waste materials. Offering a unique proposition in the industry, they deliver construction industry clients a broad portfolio of services underpinned by the highest levels of customer service.
Having experienced continual, rapid growth, the business realised that its existing IT infrastructure and software solutions were being overtaken by evolving business needs and customer demands. Secure and reliable information technology was recognised as key to achieving customer service goals and to the efficient running of a rapidly growing, complex, high-volume business. GRS needed a well-defined IT Strategy against which to align its technology investments.
CFO Martin Reid said:
We appointed Steve Bellfield as our Group IT Director in order to develop that strategy and ensure that our investments in IT would be focussed and coordinated within an overall roadmap.
With that strategy firmly in place, GRS made targeted investments and the business now benefits from state-of-the-art infrastructure and modern, scalable commercial systems that can keep pace with its ambitious growth plans.
CFO Martin Reid continued:
‘The roadmap enables us to plan our future IT investments safe in the knowledge that we are future-proof and getting the most from our hard-earned cash.
‘Having an experienced IT Director on board, with previous experience in the sector, has given management the confidence to make significant investments in systems, which have put GRS at the leading edge within the construction industry. We are confident that the platform we have built can accommodate our growth plans and the ever changing demands of our customers.’
