“When I started working at SRL, I was responsible for looking after the company’s master spreadsheet. Like many businesses at the time, we were still manually invoicing and there was a lot of information being duplicated.” says Vicki.  “Back then, we had just six depots, so it was manageable to collate information for each one, but, as the business was growing, it was clear that we needed to introduce a system that would reduce our manual inputting to help us ultimately improve productivity and save time.”

"I had a call recently at 2am from a client about the Testo’s junction in the north east. The Urban 64 kit was not performing properly and the timings were slightly out. We were keen to resolve the problem before the rush hour started, so I called an engineer who arrived on site within two hours. It turned out that some traffic management equipment had been moved and it just needed a minor adjustment to get the system up and running normally again. The issue was solved within a two and a half hour window and the client was delighted."

James Smart

It’s a busy role looking after so many large customers with very demanding requirements, but I love the customer service element of my job and building relationships with people,” says Tracy. “I have a great rapport with my customers and they know that they can come to me with any requests or issues and I will look after them.”
