As a small bespoke manufacturer, growing pains are common. Systems and processes used during start up are more often than not completely unsuitable for larger operations.
Experiencing rapid growth and the exceptional costs that came with it, especially in the form of employment, we worked with an up and coming small business to create cost effective, powerful software that would support their growth.
Unlike out of the box, one size fits all solutions, which come with hefty subscription fees, nonsensical complicated interfaces and force significant, disruptive and inefficient changes in workflow we worked with our customer to create a personalised solution around them; with advice from our knowledgeable business consultants who took the time to understand and work with the business.
The software is a comprehensive bespoke ERP & CRM system. Useful from the very start in identifying and creating customers, managing ad revenue (Such as Google Ads) and creating reports at the touch of a button. It handles accounting, customer interactions, booking, RMA’s, manufacturing – every aspect of the clients business is handled and connected seamlessly.
The result? A system created at a fraction of a cost of off the shelf systems, yet far more powerful. The client has seen 500% growth in revenue, in 2 years, with no additional staff required (even to handle the new business) and no subscription fees – and that is still increasing!
Of course, our relationship has not ended there and we provide full support, cloud hosting and ongoing development for the client; including integration with their website, emails, SMS functionality and other software.

Business cards have the important dual function of providing contact information and making a good impression to your prospective clients. For CII Solutions we designed a business card that used the shield from the logo we created as a watermark emblem on the front of the card. This emphasises the strength and protection of the brand and the business offering.
Building on the strength of the logo that we designed for CII Solutions this compliment slip incorporates all the design concepts from the logo into this contemporary compliment slip. The colour strips top and bottom perfectly frame the watermark of the shield emblem.
Fire safety is a serious business and so a strong and confidence inspiring logo was definitely our first thought when we were approached to design a new logo for CII Solutions Ltd. The bold, strong font in combination with the symbolism of the shield provide a feeling of protection that you can have confidence in.
“I have the be the first to admit how impressed I am…… I have to commend you on your work”
The wardrobes that Fox Wardrobes design and manufacture are very high quality and definitely luxury, so their logo needs to match their offering. Using a classic script and seal or emblem style design this logo gives the impression of class, quality and traditional values.
The client was so happy with the logo that it’s now not only used on their webs site and office stationary but also printed on large decals on their installers vans.
“Thank you very much for a really really good job”
Fresh, hot and bursting with popping energy. This playful logo design for a food stall producing fresh high quality popcorn was an instant hit with the client. Being so visually strong and by using bright primary colours this logo is very clearly visible from across a crowd when printed on the stalls awnings.
If you think of any successful multinational company and the chances are that you can also picture their logo in your minds eye. The importance of getting your company logo right cannot be over emphasised enough. It instantly transmits a non verbal message about your business and becomes that recognisable icon that will be synonymous with the company’s offering, values and overall identity.
For Divine Duplication our graphic designers worked with the client to create a logo that transmits the values of the brand while clearly communicating to customers what the offering is.
New CD & DVD duplication service needed to make an impact in a competitive market, so they turned to River eSolutions for help. After our graphics design team had created an beautiful and eye catching logo the web development team got to work on the new site. Important aspects for the client were that it be visually stunning, use contemporary design and be easy for customers to use.
The result is an end to end website build using the latest design styles and state of the art coding technology to ensure maximum cross browser compatibility. The client has gone onto to take advantage of our in house SEO service and are enjoying search engine performance benefits every day.
The whole team at River eSolutions have been excellent throughout the project. They really took the time to understand what our business was trying to achieve and have provided a website that we’re all very proud of.
When The Duplication Service contacted River eSolutions they had a problem. Their CD and DVD duplication service had so many different product combinations and prices that it was very difficult to show prospective customers what the cost would be of their job. The solution our consultants came up with was an interactive, real time, price calculator.
Now customers can choose from the available options, adjust the quantity they need and see straight away what the job is going to cost. When they’ve finalised the specification they then can go ahead and place the order right there and then online.
The calculator has been very well received by the companies customers and has allowed them to increase their online turnover while cutting down on timely phone calls and manually generated quotes.
Martin Fox makes outstanding bespoke sliding wardrobes. His customers were telling him how fantastic the designs are and how the build quality is better than anything else on the market. So why wasn’t he busier? Surely the fact that he wasn’t getting any significant leads from his website must be a factor. After speaking with River eSolutions we designed, developed and hosted a completely new, mobile friendly, website not only focused on the outcomes that Martin new his customers wanted but also with a heavy emphases on improving his search engine presence and overall web traffic. The graph below shows it all: traffic up 2000% in one month. Martin now has orders to keep him busy for the next 3 months and the queue keeps growing!
“I always leave River eSolutions with a good feeling knowing that we’re taking steps forward & that I have asked the right people to do the job, so thank you very much for everything that you do for me.”
