Work Job Title: Solution Architect


Version: MS6

User Group Role: Council Member


I am the Solution Architect for Hoople Ltd, a private limited company with public sector shareholders - Herefordshire Council and Wye Valley NHS Trust. Hoople was established in 2011, since which time we have grown and developed into a business that now delivers a wide range of services to strategic partners and customers.

From a Business World perspective our implementation has five clients; Hoople Ltd, Herefordshire Council, Rutland County Council, Place Partnership Ltd and a Payroll Bureau client including organisations such as Academy Schools and Leisure Trusts. We also offer Payroll as a service to Haymarket Media Group within their installation of Business World.

My role is primarily to oversee and manage the Development Roadmap so that we can continue to deliver efficiencies to our customer base. I also deal with any support escalations, system administration duties and lead on new business opportunities.

I was part of the initial ERP Implementation Project team and once live I moved into a system support role before leaving Hoople to work as a Senior Consultant for Unit4 partner, ROC (now Zalaris) primarily on Cabinet Office projects alongside arvato. I returned to Hoople in January 2015 to lead on a 554 to Milestone 4 upgrade, and have since implemented two new full ERP customers and upgraded to Milestone 6.

In my spare time i’m a keen footballer, although since having my lovely young children, my appearances are restricted to midweek 7-a-side.
