Rapid Business Systems was formed in Leicester, at the beginning of 2014.
Our initial focus was on providing consultancy and custom software development services to businesses in the Retail and Fashion sectors. Our focus has changed somewhat since then, and we’re not ashamed to admit it.
Over the years, we have worked with some of the UK’s most recognisable brands — and we’re proud to continue working with many of them to this day.
But we soon came to realise that many of the technologies those larger companies are using, are equally relevant to smaller businesses — and even to other industries.
The problem had always been that those smaller businesses lacked the resources and capabilities of their larger rivals. And we decided we wanted to change that.
So we started working with smaller companies, in different sectors, outside of our normal remit. These sectors ranged from food preparation to distribution — and even construction.
We had some challenging times and learned a lot along the way.
And while we didn’t have any prior experience in food preparation or construction, we knew that many of the challenges and objectives were the same as in any other business we’d worked with. This was where we were confident we could add value.
Today, we provide a range of services to SMEs that would typically be out of their reach.
We help businesses across a range of industries to improve their internal processes by implementing both custom and off-the-shelf software.
And, by automating some of their most laborious and time-wasting tasks, they can use their employees to their full potential, giving them work that fulfils and excites them.
Customers commonly ask us to help them:
Increase output, by improving employee productivity
Get quick access to accurate decision-making reports
Stop wasting time on repetitive manual data entry
Automate their laborious and repetitive activities.
Going forward, we plan to continue developing our proprietary internal toolset to allow us to deliver even better custom software to our customers, more quickly and more affordably.
