“Before Nexus, we had a limited understanding of forecasting. In reality it was a tick box exercise on spreadsheets. Clear targeting, regular performance reviews and daily state-of-play meetings were not happening. Some teams had excess capacity, while others endured backlogs because the management team didn’t load-balance resources. There was a fixation on achieving the minimum defined service standards. With Nexus, we have fit-for-purpose capacity planning and the benefits are substantial.”
