Hambleton Group

Vectis Auctions, part of the Hambleton Group, specialises in collectable toys such as Corgi, Matchbox and Hornby, as well as toys related to television, film and comics. Auctions are held on the premises but bids can be placed online.

The company, based in Thornaby, worked with academics from Teesside University’s School of Computing to examine current online systems and practices, and look at where improvements could be made.

Joanne Noble and Barry Hebbron, senior lecturers in computing, and Andrew Gibbon, projects developer, were tasked with analysing the performance of the Vectis website.

Their business systems health check involved looking at the current systems and requirements, building a model of the business processes and workflows. They identified where improvements could be made and processes could be streamlined.

Teesside University also worked with two other companies from the Hambleton Group – ArtsBank, based in Saltburn, to evaluate whether the website met business objectives and Teesside Caravans, to ensure its website reflected the growth of the business.
