Colchester, UK – 23 March 2011 – Granger’s, the environmentally friendly technology-based company specialising in cleaning and waterproofing products, has invested in a new manufacturing system from Access UK. The Derbyshire company has selected Access Supply Chain to streamline its stock management and improve targeted purchasing activity.
Much of its works order processing was carried out manually which was proving inefficient and very time consuming. Nick Holloway, sourcing and purchasing manager at Granger’s, said, “We looked at a number of different providers before settling on Access. The solution just seemed to tick all the boxes for us. It’s an easy to use system with a detailed and comprehensive implementation programme and it has an excellent forecasting module.” Granger’s will be looking to streamline its stock processes by reducing its stock hold, and improving stock availability, and more accurate stock taking. “As a business we’re moving away from an old hand-written paper system and the use of automated works orders will help us achieve this,” continued Nick.
Access Supply Chain is part of a wider plan for Granger’s. “One of the influencing factors in selecting Access was that it supports extensive business growth with great flexibility, which allows additional modules to be added at a later date. Our longer term view is to implement Access Document Manager to again remove unnecessary and time consuming paperwork,” said Nick.
The implementation of the new solution will begin at the end of March, including integration with the firm’s existing systems. “We’ll benefit from improved MRP views, batch manufacturing, and real-time reporting; this new system will really help us with our stock management,” concluded Nick.
Craig Such, Access UK Supply Chain MD, said, “I’m really pleased that Granger’s has selected Access Supply Chain for their manufacturing solution. They join a growing number of mid-market companies who benefit from increased efficiency and access to reliable information by using Access Supply Chain.”
