It was the computer guv…

 Perhaps this was the scene at Auto Windscreens head office ? And maybe they should have branched out into repairing computer screens rather than car windscreens. Plenty of internal business given the stories we are hearing

So Autowindscreens collapse was due to the IT. That is what we are being told by Delloites. Heres a very good piece

So who or what do we believe? Frankly I cant help thinking that putting the blame on an apparently less than wonderful IT service is just a little too conveniently exonerating the possibly less than wonderful management. A bad workman etc etc etc

Of course poor systems can lead to cash being tied up in the worng areas of the business, but were the controls really so catastrophic that any business would have been bought to its knees? I suspect we will be hearing more about this…
