T.I.Midwood & Co Limited (TIMco), one of the UK's largest and most experienced wholesale suppliers of screws, fasteners, nails and power tool accessories, announces today that it has chosen Sage ERP X3 Standard Edition to deliver greater scalability and accuracy across the business, as it continues to expand.
Growing at a rapid 10% year on year rate, Sage ERP X3 will provide TIMco with a more efficient management and reporting process, assisting in importing and tracking over 4000 product lines across the world, ‘straight out of the box’. The standard solution, which is being implemented now by Datel, will also add certain customisations to the solution that will be ready to go live as soon as the New Year.
Managing Director of TIMco, Simon Midwood commented: “We’re looking forward to having much improved reporting across the business, with everything on a single platform. The dashboards available on Sage ERP X3 will give departmental managers in our warehouse, finance, quality control, telesales and field sales an at-a-glance view of their key performance indicators and equip them to have greater accountability. Stock control will also be a priority for the new system. With thousands of product lines to manage, close end-to-end visibility of our stock is vital.”
Before selecting Sage ERP X3, TIMco considered various other solutions from Microsoft, SAP and Infor, Midwood said: “We have a complicated four-tier accounts structure, which some systems couldn’t handle. Furthermore, we didn’t want to go down the time-consuming bespoke route. With our present rate of growth we just don’t have the time and resources to do this. The Standard Edition of Sage ERP X3 seemed perfectly positioned midway between off-the-shelf packages at one end of the spectrum and bespoke solutions at the other.”
Developed for mid-sized companies and subsidiaries of large groups with international demands, Sage ERP X3 gives users the freedom to choose a desktop or web interface, which is cost effective to deploy and easy to integrate, offering outstanding scalability and performance.

About T.I.Midwood & Co Limited
Founded in 1972 and originally based in Chester, T.I.Midwood & Co Limited (TIMco) initially concentrated on importing a small range of nylon lock nuts and self-tapping screws from the Far East. In more recent years, the company has increasingly focused on researching, developing and launching new product lines. In 2005 the company added to its traditional fixings and fasteners business by launching the Addax Power Tool Accessory range. TIMco’s growing reputation and commercial success required an extension to its 4,000 square metre premises just outside Nantwich, with the opening of an additional 2,000 square metre logistical centre.
