Zena Harwood, general manager of the company, stressed the importance of a system that had detailed reporting features due to being regularly asked by senior sales staff: “what are our sales figures and what is going out the door today?”. Bearing this and other needs in mind (including traceability and multi warehouse management), we recommended and later implemented the cloud-based inventory system, Cin7.
Improvements to the business from using Cin7 were noticed instantly with Zena saying: “BlueHub and Cin7 have helped the business massively, we’ve reduced paperwork significantly and orders can be processed and dispatched in a few hours rather than days. Everyone is looking at the same system, everyone is linked. Even the sales guys out on the road can see exactly what we can see here.” It was clear that one of the biggest benefits and improvements of using Cin7 was in the warehouse. “They can now see the orders go on the system within minutes, the goods are now being picked, packed and out the door same day which is a massive bonus to us.”
