What our customers say…

One of the many advantages of the end to end system comes when we are required to run a product trace for audit purposes. We can use OrderWise to find out when a product was manufactured, what raw materials were used and to which customers the product was sold. Also with the use of stock control techniques like FIFO, we know that when we are asked to pick a product from the warehouse, we are being directed to the oldest stock in the location.

Mark Thomson, Mackays
Financial Accountant

Most importantly from our point of view, we have to know exactly who has bought every kilo of product because if there is a problem with it, we have to be able to recall it all. And with OrderWise, that information is available literally at the push of a button – it takes seconds.

Steve Logsdon, Barnes Williams
Financial Director

I honestly don’t know how we’d manage our batch traceability without OrderWise. Any other system would just leave too much margin for error but our pick notes tells us to pick that particular product, of that batch, with that expiry date. So the warehouse staff can be 99.9% certain once they’ve picked it that the right batch has gone out.

Keep your finger on the pulse

Dealing with the overarching operations of a business isn’t an easy task without the right tools in place. Inaccurate stock levels, a lack of reporting data and unstable, outdated systems can get in the way of making those all-important business decisions.

  • Experience real-time visibility of stock levels and access a full audit to increase accuracy across your business

Take the pressure off your workforce

We know how hard it can be to achieve control in the warehouse without the right tools in place. Inadequate technology makes it harder for you to understand overall performance with a lack of real-time data, and puts extra pressure on operatives to fulfil their day-to-day duties.

Don’t work around an outdated system. With OrderWise, you will gain confidence in stock data and increase your throughput without the staggering costs, as well as a host of other benefits:

  • Utilise technology that evolves as your processes develop, enabling you to make changes in one place without having to manually rekey data, and create warehouse targets using KPI Dashboards
  • Automate processes with Mobile WMS Devices to utilise your resources efficiently, reduce costs and waste to the wider business, and receive notification of new orders and instructions
  • Easily manage batch and expiry dates and handle tasks from goods in and returns to works order component picking and order despatch with automated and optimised task assignment, allowing you to focus on the bigger picture rather than the day-to-day
  • Automate the stock replenishment process to maintain picking efficiency and be the first to know when stock is running out, as well as flag problems with missing or damaged stock
  • Integrate with courier systems to combine orders into a single shipment and utilise delivery rules to save staff time on choosing the right couriers for the job, as well as manage your own delivery vehicles

Access all your figures in one place

The finance department often bears the brunt of poor performing technology. Outdated paper-based systems and other manual processes can make it difficult to reconcile data, leading to inaccurate financial reports developed from basic, disjointed tools.

With OrderWise, you can make accurate forecasts easily and understand what’s happening in the business by having all your data in one place. Get the most from your team with automation by increasing efficiency and maximising profitability:

  • Fully accredited by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) and HMRC approved for eVAT submissions and ready for MTD
  • Automate manual processes and reduce time spent on mundane tasks, such as closing off EOM and EOY accounts with automated wizards and controlling business credit and debt with Advanced Credit Control
  • Benefit from complete visibility of actions across the system with audit trails
  • Use BI Alerts to automate communication within the business, ensuring processes are followed and deadlines are met, and allow customers to self-serve with online stores and OrderWise Payment Portal
  • Receive first-class support through the implementation of OrderWise and integrate other finance and accounting platforms easily

Maximise your selling power

Bad technology can lead to bad practice, and jeopardising sales is not something to risk in the sales and marketing department. With inadequate systems, you’re relying on muddled information to guide you through your day-to-day sales and marketing, and incorrect customer data can make you look as disorganised as you feel.

Don’t wait for complaints to roll in before making a change. Instead, invest your money in a dedicated solution that will help you maximise sales, highlight your performance and align your sales and marketing strategy for good:

  • Online sales channels are automated and integrated, so sales representatives can invest their time in making sales rather than taking orders. Integrate with OrderWise Online Store and Sales App, as well as EDI systems and marketplaces such as Amazon and eBay
  • Our Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system uses historic customer data to enhance your service, as well as provide automated assistance with upselling and easily manage customer pricing
  • Quickly understand customer information including their history, despatch and more in a timeline view, as well as their wider touch points across the business
  • Have full visibility of your available stock with Stock Control, and keep up to speed on your performance with Business Intelligence, BI Alerts and KPI Dashboards. Use our mobile app to access information on the move
  • Utilise Recency, Frequency, Monetary (RFM) tactics to understand the true value your customers bring to your business
