How did you first hear about Inoapps?
I worked for a company called Methods and Inoapps were a go-to partner for Oracle implementations. So, I got to work with Inoapps and experience their people and ways of working before I joined the company.
How long have you been working for Inoapps?
I’ve been with the company for three years.
What was your initial attraction to the company and why did you apply for a role?
I didn’t apply for a role in the usual way, but we had some conversations around Inoapps’ internal transition towards being a traditional premises implementer of Oracle I liked the fact there was less emphasis on software implementation and more about the business transformation. So, I joined Inoapps to help them in developing the framework that would allow them to do that.
What projects have you worked on and which ones did you enjoy the most?
I’m fortunate because I get to work on a lot of the projects and there’s a wide variety. Most of the Oracle SaaS implementation include a transformation element. I’ve been fortunate enough to travel to the US to work on transformation projects with companies like Camden. Here in the UK, I’ve been part of the team that’s come up with innovative ways of attracting new customers such as Ofqual with the sprint framework. More recently, I’ve worked on the Cloud readiness assessments for Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council.
Where do you see your path to progression leading you?
I see myself and the management at Inoapps working even more extensively in maturing the Change practice, expanding our customer base and perfecting our ability to be seen in the industry as a transformation partner and not just a software implementer.
What is the best part about working for Inoapps?
The people and camaraderie are the best things about working here.
What’s been your favourite Inoapps moment so far?
There are so many moments to choose from over the years. My favourite Inoapps moment so far on a professional level was when Inoapps were selected to be Skanska’s preferred implementation partner. On a personal level, getting caught in a hurricane during a trip to our US office has many fun memories for me, believe it or not. It was more about having a laugh with my colleague than the wind.
What would be the first piece of advice you would give to someone joining the company?
I would encourage them to be themselves and reassure them that we are a mutually transparent company to work with in general. Develop strong character, bring your A-game, and remember it’s all about the people to work as a team to ensure your success. Lastly, you must be willing to work hard.
