We use our extensive business experience to improve process and efficiency, working with and beyond technology. Our customers range from the small end of SMEs to the upper-most limits.  We work with people who want to deliver efficient, cost-effective, real-time change.

Whether you want a small business process change, or a full technology implementation, successful change is possible in both a cost and time effective manner. We'll  work with you to transform dead time and money into business gold.

Why Alchemy?

The original Alchemists were interested in transformation – of people, of objects, of life. Everyone knows the stereotype of turning lead into gold… Fundamentally, they were focused on different forms of change and how to effect them, specifically by using a combination of scientific skills and human understanding. They recognised that theory was nothing without comprehending the nature of the subject you’re applying it to.

In the rational, often impersonal, business world that we live in, we sometimes forget that connection. It’s too easy to reduce business process to just being a set of scientifically or academically correct documents and protocols. It’s too easy to forget that people are the heart of any business process and therefore, any business change.

Sometimes it's easy to overlook the fact that process and people need to match in order for your business to truly integrate and accept the change.

There’s a large, untapped potential within businesses, both in IT systems and in people. We want your IT systems and people to fit together efficiently to create value for your business.

Company Information

The Principals

Business System Alchemy was started by Michael Meryment and Ruxana D'Vine in 2012. They are both passionate about helping businesses get the most out of IT systems and their vendors. They both feel there is often a significant divide between the way businesses communicate IT needs and in the way their IT vendor digests and acts on those needs.

Michael and Ruxana and developed their High-Impact Project Delivery method while working together in a multi-national Construction and Services company, from its birth to its untimely demise.

Michael started his professional life as a Chartered Accountant, before then working for a Consultancy business providing IT evaluations and implementations to medium to large businesses.  Read more about Michael...

Ruxana first encountered IT systems when using Pronto-Xi ERP as a Service Coordinator and Administrator at a lock-smithing company, where she was involved in driving the system to meet operational needs. After this, she worked for several years at a software company as a Senior Business Analyst.  Read more about Ruxana...
