Nash Business Systems have over 10 years of automotive development. During this time, we have learnt about the processes which exist in businesses, and where money is won and lost.
Systems we have built and implemented have allowed departments to do more with less people. This has allowed some team members to move into other areas of the business, to do more value-added work. Therefore workers who have a skill set higher than endless administrative tasks which used to consume their daily tasks.
There is no off the shelf system for many of the activities in an automotive company. The reason for this is processes are largely driven by the OEM or Tier 1 requirements. There is an underlying ITAF 16949 audit requirement, which helps to bring standards across all Automotive Suppliers. However, your implementation can depend on customers, especially with complex commodities.
We have offered guidance and support for customers who supply to BMW, Nissan, Ford, Mazda, Mercedes, Toyota, Volkswagen, Subaru, Honda and Jaguar Land Rover.
