University of Greenwich, Greenwich Research & Enterprise (GRE)
Business Automation Solution
Greenwich Research & Enterprise (GRE) is a central department within the University of Greenwich, whose role is to support sustainable and long-term growth in research and enterprise in the University.
The main services provided by GRE are: Research and funding support; business and enterprise development; identifying and exploiting intellectual property; regional business support.
Following project approval from the University’s IT Projects Board, the project was put out to tender with a number of organisations coming forward with proposals. Pythagoras were selected as the delivery partner as their experience and quality project-management methodology gave GRE the greatest confidence that they would be able to deliver the solution required.
Since deployment, the new CRM system has improved the management of interactions between individuals, organisations and the GRE business development staff, including the ability to: Provide ‘live’ summary information to senior management, aiding decision making; provide analysis on performance of the business development team; and conduct marketing communications amongst others.
Throughout project delivery, Pythagoras were extremely engaged and professional. They had a very clear and detailed project delivery methodology which meant the project was always on schedule and there were clear sign-off stages before moving on with the project.
I am delighted Greenwich Research and Enterprise chose to partner with Pythagoras. Our CRM expertise within Higher Education and close working relationship with GRE will ensure this is a true long term partnership.
