What is the Innate approach to Resource Management Software?

In 1992, the co-founders of Innate brought complementary skills and a shared experience to the new venture. Previously, Barry Muir was responsible for sales and marketing and Mike Watts for development with a major project management system vendor.

Amongst the lessons learned were that complex system implementations too often fail to meet their objectives, and that great care is needed in setting client expectations.

The arrival of Microsoft Project was the opportunity for Innate to develop a more simple approach to managing multiple projects. Twenty years of addressing client issues with incremental steps, rather than by radical system change, has established Innate’s credibility in the market place.

Now established as the logical next step for those who are struggling with spreadsheets and/or Microsoft Project, we keep client expectations realistic and implementation time short, to substantially reduce the risk of objectives not being met.

Our clients are likely to have contact with the following, all of whom rely on our unsung back room staff.

  • Gordon Petitt and Brian Forsdick look after our sales. They have extensive experience with resource management systems, to ensure that every client’s particular expectations are well understood. Contact Gordon or Brian by clicking the links – Gordon Petit Brian Forsdick.
  • Tony Fielding leads our Implementation Consultants. He managed a large Innate system at a major financial services company before joining us, so understands well the issues that our clients face. Contact Tony by clicking the link – Tony Fielding.
