Jones Wholesale had turned to STL to support its growth strategy. Having established a cash and carry strong foothold in its native Northamptonshire the specialist trade and business non-food operator wanted to extend its reach through eCommerce. However, the rigidity of its legacy system was making it difficult to extract data in different formats for different purposes, or to add new functionality, devices and users.
Again, STL’s sector knowledge, migration process and its specialist API for SAP Crystal Reports made the difference, enabling Jones to move to the new platform without significant disruption.
Evo’s adaptability to different devices means that Jones Wholesale’s team can now easily collate, share and query information – even when on the move.
On handheld terminals, it cuts the time required for shelf-edge price checks, stock counts and picking, and its automatic updates from the warehouse to head office ensures the entire organisation has access to the latest stock, sales and order data.
Simon particularly likes the ability to create purchase orders from his phone.
‘By enabling us to collate, query and extract data from across the business as meaningful information in different formats and on different devices, STL is helping us to integrate and inform our entire team so we can respond more quickly to any changes in our trading environment.’
