Cwmbran Technology Firm Launches Innovative New Product to Help SMEs


A Torfaen technology firm has launched a new product designed to give small-to-medium sized businesses in the manufacturing sector affordable access to industry-leading financial management software.

Hudman Solutions, which is based at the Springboard Business Innovation Centre in Cwmbran, launched its latest product, Central ERP®, in January. The cloud-based software system offers businesses a range of services, from accounting and payroll to sales, stock and production control, supply chain management and financial forecasting.

Businesses pay a monthly fee for the service, which includes all upgrades and support, and the products are already being used by companies in a wide range of industries from across the UK. Paul Driscoll, commercial director, started the company in 2009. He said: “I have been a chartered accountant for more than 35 years and it always frustrated me that the sort of high-end financial software that can really help smaller businesses to work smarter and more effectively is almost always out of their price range.
