ecube – CIMS
In 2018, ecube commissioned Josh to rebuild a failing system. Due to the small size of the business, the pain points had not been apparent until the company grew and more users came online. Josh investigated the issues and proclaimed “I could build you something better”. 4 years later, the system has evolved multiple times, migrated to the cloud and is now used in many different countries as the mission-critical operational and logistics system maintaining records and media of the hundreds of thousands of parts ecube handles.
In 2020, ecube faced significant networking issues with their St Athan base. Josh was brought in and after fixing the issues found significant issues spanning hardware, networking and 365. Further investigation found major security and compliance problems including failing IT partners. Over the next 18 months, Josh was able to revolutionise the infrastructure, increasing security and productivity by doing so. Josh continues to assist the internal IT team and advise on key decisions and implementations.
