Before being introduced to OrderWise, all of Barnes Williams’ daily processes were managed through Sage 50. At the time, Barnes Williams was just one business instead of the three they are today and were using third-party hauliers to manage all of their warehousing and fulfilment. However as the company began to expand both in terms of the products offered and subsequent increase in the number of daily orders being received, it soon became clear to Steve and his team that it would be more cost-effective for Barnes Williams to have their own warehouse.
“It got to the point where we were spending that much money on storage, it was cheaper for us to actually bite the bullet and purchase our own warehouse. Because of this, we also recognised that we needed to invest in a warehouse management system.”
