Through his involvement, we have now in place:

Staff appraisals

Salary Scales

HRM database

Awareness of conditions for team work


Hrm and hr development1

HRM and HR development

Anton arranged visits to two similarly sized firms in the Netherlands. These visits taught me that:

Our systems at A&A are of an international level and standard.

Stock problems can only be adequately controlled through bar codes and a serialized inventory system.

Management challenges in Tanzania and Holland are very similar.


Hrm and hr development2

HRM and HR development

We should follow up in these HR areas:

A systematic approach to staff development.

Better tracking of sickness and absence.

She stayed with us for a week, free of charge.

Her final conclusion was “To build a sustainable business, A&A needs to realize growth with a more commercial approach”

The outcomes of her research and report were:

An increased commercial approach, for example:

Initialization of the CRM function

Organizing strategic planning meetings

Improve staff training

The outcomes of her research and report were:

Understanding how PPM activities contribute to our financial results.

Understanding the need to expand our product range and service provision.


Marketing and organizational consultancy4

We should follow up in this area:

Positioning of A&A computers in the changing market.


Technical services consultancy

Technical Services consultancy

Candida volunteered to advise on improving our help desk and workshop systems.

The outcomes of her research and report were:

The database needed more fields for technical reporting, and indicating priority.

Improve distribution of jobs among technicians.

Technicians needed to more completely fill in the reports.

Indicate priority or repair jobs.

Improve quality through pre and post testing.

Clean up the workshops – and keep them clean.

Present the report’s findings and discuss with management and technical staff.

Merav volunteered to define a CRM system for us, and wrote a report for us outlining such a system.

Financial systems consultancy

Mr. Jeroen Bogaers is a financial advisor and trouble-shooter in the Netherlands.

He agreed to fly to Tanzania, and advise us during two weeks on improving our financial systems.


Financial systems consultancy1

Financial systems consultancy

The outcomes of his research and report were:

Accounts have been kept in a very disorganized way, making it impossible to control costs, and to plan for expanding our business.

It will be possible to get accurate accounts with relatively simple changes in procedures.

Accounting data can be entered by our administrators and sales staff. We should hire external accounting expertise to check, and keep our accounts organized.


Financial systems consultancy2

We should follow up in these areas:

Implement the many advises of the consultant, that will result in a clear and useful state of accounts.

Hire external accounting expertise, to keep our accounts to the required standards.


Conclusions

Conclusions

A&A computers Ltd. has learned very much from the consultants.

The company now has several sound administrative systems in place, allowing it to take better care of its staff, including their training needs, keeps better relations with it customers, and actively adjusts its position in the IT market.


Conclusions1

Conclusions

We should regularly review consultancy reports, and assess what advise we should still implement. These reports are available in our A&A library system.

We should continue attracting consultants, as they will assist A&A to improve its operations in the fast-changing Tanzanian IT market.
