In addition to a brick and mortar outlet, Chelford also operates a successful online store. To keep up with the latest equestrian brands and farming products meant cycling through stock three times a year. However, by time the inventory grew to over 24,000 products the company needed a business tool to increase their capacity for managing more inventory without increasing the number of employees.
Chelford knew it needed a new business management application and spent time carefully evaluating many applications on the market. Say Sarah Kranz, finance director, Chelford Farm Supplies. “SAP Business One comes with a fantastic reputation; it really does what it says on the box. After seeing a software demonstration, we were impressed by its flexibility and ability to integrate with our retail and online business”.
Vision33’s dedicated support team mapped out the company’s requirements; integration points with its web store, MRP requirements and identifying manual processes that could be automated. The implementation took just a few months and after the go-live, the results were immediate. With full purchase ordering through receiving and invoicing the company has identified thousands of pounds in discrepancies. But for Chelford the biggest benefit was in the amount of time saved. “We can now spend more time on value-added tasks instead of things like manual data input”, explains Kranz. “If we were doing a payment run for our suppliers it used to take the whole day. Now with SAP Business One that same process takes half an hour”.
