Hoggett Creative has chosen Tharstern as its MIS provider to help maintain its current growth rate.
Hoggett Creative is an established creative agency which offers graphic design, print and web development as well as commercial photography and online video creation projects. It is now in its tenth year of trading, with a team of nine employees.
Based in Annan, most of its customers are in Dumfries and Galloway, however, it has recently gained some new customers from Aberdeen, South Wales and Finland. The company is currently looking to expand the business, and this is one of the main reasons it chose Tharstern.
‘We looked at many different systems and found Tharstern offered a complete package and after looking at other systems and taking part in many demonstrations, we soon realised it was the best on the market. Our business is growing, and we wanted a system that would not just manage our workload now but be suitable for years to come too,’ said Simon Woolley, creative director, Hoggett Creative.
In the last four years, the company has doubled its turnover on a yearly basis. Up until now all profit has been reinvested to grow the team and invest in the best technology available, which led to its investment in Tharstern.
As for the goals with the Tharstern system, Simon said: ‘We are hoping to become more organised and have a system in place which will store all project information. At the moment we use three different systems – one system will be so much easier for everyone.’
Hoggett Creative specialise in brochures, flyers, labels and other types of small format print. It currently use a Xerox V180 with which the Tharstern MIS will integrate.
