Daval agrees ‘Tech can make SME sector more efficient’
Daval, leaders in the design and manufacture of quality British fitted furniture attend a local business roundtable event in conjunction with Connect Yorkshire: a not-for-profit organisation that has a track record of helping Yorkshire businesses grow over the last fifteen years.
This event on 5th December 2017, provided an invaluable opportunity for a host of Yorkshire businesses, like Daval, to discover new avenues to grow both business and brand, with the primary focus being ‘how technology can influence business.’
Attended by owner managers from some of the region’s most successful companies who were either Entrepreneurs in Residence or members of Connect Yorkshire, this roundtable was chaired by Nick Butler, Chief Executive of Connect Yorkshire.
Simon Bodsworth, Managing Director, Daval says “Technology can be used to inspire customers and get rid of grey areas in expectations. I think it is our investment in technology that has been key to our continued growth, welcoming expansion across our software and machine capabilities. By doing so, we have guaranteed the preservation of our flexible nature and in todays unforgiving market, it is essential that both business and brand remain agile.”
Daval’s unrestricted approach to generating new business means that it can answer demand as and when required; delivering the latest in British furniture design, material and affordability.
Simon continues “Our technological investment has doubled Daval’s remit for production, as well as support a more proficient system for increased sales and decreased material waste. By combining our machinery and respective software, we have intelligently reduced the time it takes to develop and market new products by approximately 50%. Able to anticipate and react to changing markets, we can now take advantage of taking the ‘first-to-market’ approach to ensure it remains competitive and highly-economical for business and customer.”
