our story

It's 1995 and the World Wide Web is in its infancy. With Y2K or “The Millennium Bug” a mere speck on the horizon, awareness of it and its potential to cause disruption is yet to enter the public consciousness.

However Phil Keet, a UK finance professional is acutely are of the impending risk. Employed by a City of London Investment Bank operating business critical technology, he recognises that business software in use at the time is unlikely to successfully handle the impending digital change as clocks switch from 1999 to 2000. Phil is acutely aware that a serious crisis is looming and so sets up Millennium Consulting with the initial goal of helping organisations avert the coming danger.

Responding to this looming challenge, Millennium Consulting was set up and teams of change specialists assembled to provide advice and delivery services to help clients achieve Y2K software compliance. These consultants provided a blend of software and technical skills, domain experience, accounting knowledge, inter personal skills and delivery focus that ensured projects were delivered on time and to the required standard.

The global economy emerged relatively unscathed as 2000 passed, thanks to the work that took place to avert the risk. Demand for Millennium’s change specialists peaked at this time as the rush to beat the immovable deadline imposed its discipline on corporate finance and IT departments.

Post Y2K, Millennium Consulting turned its attention to helping clients embrace the latest web-based versions of JD Edwards software. Much has happened over the years including the dot com boom and bust, the Global Financial crisis, the rise of Cloud Computing, Social Media, Big Data Analytics and Mobile Technology. Oracle Corporation now owns JD Edwards and has demonstrated its commitment to the long term future of the software.

Technology is now high on the agenda of most CFOs and CTOs and plays an increasingly important role in operations for the modern organisation. Millennium’s team of experienced consultants continue to deliver deployment solutions as our clients embrace technology to obtain commercial advantage in today’s competitive environment.

testimonials

Global Manufacturing Company

We had to replace a key member of our team due to retirement. With twenty years experience with us this was a huge gap to fill. We had tried other recruitment companies but they failed to understand the in depth nature of our requirement and failed to offer any suitable candidates. I spoke to Howard Page who understood our requirement and immediately suggested a candidate who turned out to be the ideal replacement. Understanding JD Edwards and our business was key fo rus and only Millennium could do this.

Global Packaging Company

"We had an urgent requirement for a senior JD Edwards financial consultant to start work in Europe the following week. None of the mainstream consultancy companies got back to me so I approached Howard at Millennium. He found a consultant that evening. I conducted a telephone interview first thing the following morning and by close of business all the paperwork was completed. Understanding my requirement was key, as was understaning the candidates available and matching the skills to provide me with the right person. A very quick and efficient service saving my valuable time."
