“Amateurs talk about strategy, professionals talk about logistics.”
As a professional Logistician and Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport, Crichton and his team specialise in the development of software and hard ware systems designed to automatically source and manage large pools of flexible workers from recruitment to payroll.
In 2003, Crichton predicted that technological evolution could reach a point where the need for intermediaries in the flexible worker supply chain would reduce and internal recruiters would be able to access to the same pool of flexible workers through software systems, removing both cost and risk to the Hirer while providing the ultimate solution in automated compliance.
At that time both the agencies and the hirers in the temporary worker supply chain were still using spread sheets and compliance was based on trust.
With a military background and many years’ service at a senior management level in finance, logistics and transport, Crichton took a decision to reinvest his companies’ profits and with the help of Research and Development grants, he trained a team of programmers to design an automated fully compliant and transparent virtual agency offering major cost savings through efficiency.
