More about us

What our customers say…

The back-to-back ordering is just phenomenal, that’s alleviated the pressure on our buying department and totally changed our business – we’ve given the power back to our sales staff to order their own special goods which has freed up a lot more time in the buying department for them to focus on managing our stock better.

David Gowling, DMS Flooring Supplies

On the stock control side, obviously we have a lot of different ranges and products. By having everything in one place, it makes things easier as you know a product is going to be in that place, in that amount. It’s also easier for the staff putting on the orders, they can check to see how much is in stock, whether it is in stock at all, and then we can just run the OrderWise To Purchase Report to pick up what we need to buy and what we don’t.

Jaron Hine-Maddock, Juice Sauz
Systems Administrator

The vast majority of what we do is drop ship, so it’s all virtual really, but the way OrderWise controls stock and reorder levels works really well. We can have an order from the web filled with good accurate data with no errors and it is acknowledged to a customer within a minute. Even on the supplier side everything matches up to the order, we simply find the right product, pay the right price and collect the money from our customers – because everything’s so organised and structured, it just drives quality in everything we do.
