Kenton Morrow is a limited liability corporation located less than 90 minutes from the Chicago Loop in Sawyer, MI. Our consultants have been in the IT business for over 30 years and have been involved in some fascinating turnaround and post-merger integration projects.
MEDICAL DEVICES COMPANY
Kenton Morrow consultants were brought in to build a program from the ground up to rewrite a medical device software system that manages blood transfusions in US hospitals. The team was made up of over 60 consultants from 5 different vendors across 3 countries spanning 9 time zones. Agile development practices, automated software testing, and advanced analytics were introduced to the client over the 3 year project.
LOGISTICS AND DELIVERY COMPANY
Infrastructure, system application, and business process failures were jeopardizing the viability of this logistics company. A complete refresh of the supporting infrastructure along with application stabilization allowed enough breathing room to address business process and human resource issues. Effective vendor management allowed for a decrease in operating costs. The turnaround was finished in time for an acquiring private equity group to utilize these same IT systems to support a merger of multiple logistics companies.
LARGE REGIONAL BANK
Rescued a large-scale program for a national bank that was off schedule by 9 months and over budget by seven figures. Program goal was to replace or re-engineer all major systems in the bank including deposits, consumer and commercial loan origination, item processing, CRM, call center, teller systems, foreign exchange, treasury, and telephony. This was the first IT project recovery to use a customized methodology specifically created to mitigate cost overages while still delivering on contractual items.
