"We wouldn’t have been able to expand the business to be where we are today without the Kerridge Commercial Systems’ solution" Mark Applebee, Managing Director
Challenges: existing systems, manual processes, business development, IT resources, technical knowledge
Established in 1971, this family-owned company supplies a full range of roofing materials for the trade and DIY customers. Products, including natural slates, insulation and single ply roofing membrane systems, are sourced from leading manufacturers. Raven Roofing Supplies distributes from its network of warehouses and branches across the southern England via its delivery services or customer collection.
Raven Roofing Supplies’ previous system could not support ambitious growth plans, some processes were carried out via spreadsheet and many administration tasks were very time-consuming. Kerridge Commercial Systems were chosen to supply a new system. The company opted for a hosted, subscription-based ‘ASP’ solution which avoided the need to employ IT staff and with no large upfront IT investment required.
Gains and benefits
Hosted solution – convenient, saves time and money
A platform to enable business to expand with minimal IT investment
Advanced integrated functionality –processes are fully controlled
Data accuracy means ‘right first time’ - fewer credit notes issued
Much tighter stock control – easier to spot and resolve issues
