The Sharp-aX 3rd Party Catalogue Module

3rd Party Catalogue ModuleA powerful new feature enabling users to access their supplier catalogues in Sharp-aX and convert them to stock items in Sharp-aX quickly as required.

The 3rd Party Catalogue module is designed to allow quick and easy integration of product lists from your suppliers such as Toolbank, RKW and Elektrika.

Keep Your Stock File Tidy!

Keep your stock file tidy and only copy the stock item when you actually need to sell it.

Automated Import

Rather than creating all the stock items yourself simply obtain a spreadsheet of items from your supplier, drop it into a folder and the Module will run a scheduled routine to make it available to view within Sharp-aX.

Once the automated import has completed, the entire catalogue is available to view along with any pricing, stock figures and/or other information your supplier includes directly within Sharp-aX.

The Module offers a configurable button to add the items you require from the list directly into your main stock file.

More Powerful Options

The open-ended design of the product also allows it to be used for other applications where data needs to be dropped into Sharp-aX and regularly updated.

This includes your suppliers’ stock levels of particular products, information from your bank and similar external integrations.

Sharp-aX Managing Director Jean Freeman commented: “2017 has seen Sharp-aX launch a series of Modules, in order to make the Sharp-aX software even more powerful and user friendly.

We are relentlessly customer focused and we are continually looking for ways to help improve the productivity, efficiency and turnover of our customers’ businesses.”

Customer Feedback

"The installation has gone very well, and it has saved us a lot of time and made us more efficient especially on the sales desk. We plan to grow the system over the next few years as the company grows"

Mark Slater, Manager
M&S Distributors

"I have worked closely with the Sharp-Ax Web Development Team for more than 4 years now. When we first started working together, I was incredibly green and had little knowledge of how to go about creating a website.

Sharp-Ax were incredibly patient and helped me through the early stages, quickly earning my trust and respect.

Throughout the process they have come up with some truly innovative solutions to tasks I have set and have worked with me to achieve a platform that I am very happy with.

I would wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone that is looking to either start a website from scratch or are looking to move their business. It sounds corny Jean, Manish and the rest of the team do actually prioritise the customer experience, which in this day and age is refreshing"

Skilled, reliable, and excellent customer care

"I've been working closely with the web team at Sharp Ax now for over two years, and during that time they have always been thoroughly professional, reliable and most importantly, very good at what they do.

Our site has gone through strength to strength since we went live around 18 months ago, and it has now become a vital part of our business. We regularly receive glowing compliments about the layout and usability of our website from customers and suppliers, and while I would love to be able to take the credit for it, this is largely down to the website template and CMS, which is simple and easy to use.

As with all tech installations you may get the odd hiccup or something may not integrate seamlessly with your own system at first, but the best thing about Sharp Ax is that any problem is fixed quickly and with the minimum of fuss. It is clear that they prioritise customer satisfaction, which is refreshing to see from a tech company.

I would not hesitate to recommend this company to anyone and I look forward to continuing a strong working relationship moving forward"

"We had a big increase in our daily workload as we set up the new system. Our software problems proved to be minimal though and Sharp-aX came to our aid whenever required, so we were able to move forward with total confidence"

Dave Mansfield, Senior Systems and Network Administrator
Apex Grange Ltd

"We wanted to set the company up for the next 15 years with a totally modern Microsoft windows system that has everything we need and all the features that we will need as we grow, and is easy to use. Already it is like having another member of staff and we have all the daily knowledge we need at our fingertips. The sales order processing is splendid"

Simon Carter, Company Manager
Carter Mason Electrical Ltd

"I've looked at different systems and picked Sharp-Ax from Sharp-aX Computer Systems, because it used all modern windows techniques and was by far the best I saw; they are very experienced in electrical wholesalers systems and while they are a large software house which is reassuring, you are still treated as important, whatever size you are"
