Tektraders Limited are based in Portsmouth, Hampshire and have been using OrderWise Stock Control and Order Processing Software since 2008.
Their customers are from all sectors and include businesses, schools, IT dealers, the NHS, councils, government organisations and end users.
Tektraders Limited specialise in supplying quality IT hardware from toners and consumerables to PC’s and servers from manufacturers like HP, IBM, Lexmark and Samsung to name but a few.
In order to separate themselves from their competiton they also started supplying box damaged and ex-demonstration equipment at greatly reduced prices. This has helped their customers make massive savings and is something they have become renowned for within the IT industry.
Tektraders stock around 2,000 line items themselves and also direct ship from their suppliers, meaning they have a vast portfolio of 300,000 plus products available to them.
They previously used a bespoke Filemaker database for storage of their customer and supplier information, QuickBooks for their accounts and Excel to hold their stock information. They found this unconnected combination of systems was limiting their ability to grow the company.
Tektraders approached OrderWise as they wanted a system which would give them complete control over their inventory. Also featuring high on their requirements was the ability to grade all of their stock items.
They then wanted to be able to feed this information into their website and enable their customers to make an informed decision when placing their orders.
Managing Director Rob Hepworth took time out of his very busy schedule to talk to us about the benefits of using OrderWise.
OrderWise has enabled them to amalgamate all of their systems into one. They decided to change over to Sage Accounts at the same time as their Accountants found this easier to work with than QuickBooks.
Rob told us “Now our ordering, invoicing and stock control is seamless. It has saved us vast amounts of time and we love the way our website can automatically be updated by the output from the eCommerce Module within OrderWise.
“The technical support offered by OrderWise is excellent and a very worthwhile investment, we also value the fact that OrderWise is always evolving with each new update.”
Rob says “It’s a hard decision to change your business software even when you know you need to. It quickly dawns on you that your choice will affect your company for years to come and a bad choice can easily lead to you wasting a fortune. We scoured the market for the right solution and luckily we made the right choice and so will you if you choose OrderWise.”
“I have no reservations and take great pleasure in recommending them as an excellent solution to your business requirements.”
We would like to thank Rob and the team at Tektraders for taking the time to speak with us.
