Why SME Solutions Group
At SME, we understand the importance of staying up-to-date with the latest technological advancements. However, we firmly believe that these advancements should not take precedence over the value of your business.

The SME Approach
The value of taking a personalized, flexible, and collaborative approach to projects.
The client, a mid-market business, had experienced significant growth over the past few years.
With their growth came an increase in customer demand, which the company struggled to keep up with. The company's existing processes and systems were unable to handle the volume of orders and inquiries, resulting in delayed responses and long wait times for customers. This led to a decline in customer satisfaction and a loss of business to competitors.
Despite their attempts to work with larger systems integrators, their projects were frequently delayed, over budget, and unable to meet their specific needs.
- Cost: the large system integrator was charging high fees for their services, which became cost-prohibitive.
- Lack of customization: the standardized processes and technologies were not adaptable to specific business needs.
- Communication issues: complex hierarchies and support spread across different locations led to communication breakdowns between different teams and departments.
- Project delays: they were managing multiple projects simultaneously, resulting in delays in project delivery times.
- Lack of transparency: no insight into processes and methodologies, which made it difficult to assess the quality of their work or make informed decisions about future projects.
In search of a solution, they decided to work with SME, a smaller and more agile company that promised a unique approach to their project.
SME demonstrated a commitment to listening carefully to the business's unique needs and goals, and we created a tailored solution that perfectly aligned with their vision.
Throughout the project, the client was impressed with the high level of communication and collaboration they received from the SME Team. They were kept informed and involved in the decision-making process at every stage, ensuring that the final product was precisely what they required.
The new solution was delivered on time and within budget, satisfying the client's needs and goals.
The partnership between the two companies has been characterized by mutual trust, respect, and collaboration.
SME has continued to provide innovative solutions that meet the evolving needs of the customer, helping them to stay competitive in their industry.
The successful project outcome serves as an example of how effective project management and collaboration can lead to successful outcomes.
