The Winter 2019/20 Edition of The Derbeian Magazine, a magazine about all things Derby, past and present that also doubles up as a useful, local business directory


THE Derbeian | Winter 2019/20 Hello, I’m Lee and I have been providing leading, turnkey I.T. support to businesses in Derby and beyond both in person and via remote services for over 5 years as the owner of Pride Solutions Derby. We have worked with many companies from all over the world, gaining experience across industries such as corporate business, warehousing, medical & veterinary industries, manufacturing and railway. The reason we have repeat customers is our personal approach; we don’t offer offthe-shelf solutions (unless this is specifically required), we work with you to develop tailored solutions, taking the stress and difficulty out of knowing what to do and how to do it. All you need is to know your end goal, everything else we will support you in working out. To do this, I take my experience from being both a masters qualified mechanical engineer and my 10+ years of experience in I.T., and merge that knowledge with your ambitions to develop a system that is custom made and unique to your exact business requirements. To highlight the global capabilities of Pride Solutions, we wanted to let you know about one of our projects that has taken us to suppliers around the world to deliver a system fit for a multi-millionpound production facility in Benin, West Africa. Pride Solutions Derby CASE STUDY: FOOD FACTORY IN BENIN, WEST AFRICA. Pride Solutions Derby has recently helped a major UK supplier realise their ambition to automate data collection from the production line in their new factory in Benin, West Africa, starting from nothing but a basic idea from the managing director about how it would be great to have live production information on a dashboard screen in the operations room. The information collected in this dashboard is critical to the client growing and developing their business successfully and would allow them to continue competing on the world stage as a major supplier of food to all major UK supermarkets. With the managing director not being tech savvy, Pride Solutions Derby supported them to understand what specific data he wanted to collect and, by explaining what options and ideas we had, we nurtured that idea into a list of system requirements we could work with. From this list, we were then able to design a full system of remote sensors that interfaced seamlessly with water & electric meters, ozone production systems, various weigh scales, people counting systems and shipping systems to provide an up to date display of all the live production data, allowing the operations team to react faster to changes in production demand and assess yield and efficiency in a more timely manner. However, not only does the new system allow them to operate better reactively, but Pride Solutions Derby also used its’ engineering knowledge of production processes to build logic into the data processing rules that allows the operations team to begin looking ahead and act PROACTIVELY to avoid shortages, optimise staffing levels and minimise energy consumption. All features that would increase the reactivity, resilience and, most importantly, profitability of their business whilst reducing wastage and environmental impacts. To find out how we can help you develop and grow your business through the use of technology, get in touch today and we’ll work to develop the bespoke solution you need to make your business soar.

I was born in Darwin, Australia and then moved to the UK as a child. Family holidays spent in Australia or Europe and adventure trips to Iceland helped to form a life long love of travel. After studying for a BA in Travel and Tourism in Edinburgh, I took a year out, travelling extensively in Asia, Indonesia, Australia and New Zealand. When I returned to the UK, I joined an award winning international travel company and spent 10 years as a travel consultant creating tailor made holidays. I worked in both the leisure and First and Business departments covering all areas of travel. With over a decade of industry experience, a keen interest in unusual destinations, multi stop trips, city exploration and, most recently, family holidays with two young children, my aim is to remove the stress from booking your holiday From getting engaged in a canoe on Halong Bay to nearly falling out of my bunk on the Trans-Siberian railway, I have unique travel knowledge that enables me to create, find and book your dream trip.
