“I recommend Sharp-aX every day”

“Sharp-aX is helping dramatically”

“Sharp-aX is an ideal solution”
Apex Grange

Adam and Jamie Brown of Nationwide Builders were initially Sage users, but needed computer software that would help them to grow their company.

They bought a 4 user Sharp-aX system with a £750k turnover in 2012.

Ten years later, the company now has 22 staff and a turnover of £6m, with £7.5m forecast for 2023.

Nationwide Builders apportion a great deal of their success to the fully integrated website implemented in 2017.

The website allowed the company to thrive during lockdown, operating a unique collection service. Their presence on the internet also allows for 24/7 online ordering with automatic payments into the Sharp-aX system.

“The Sharp-aX team is approachable, helpful and always available within 3 rings of dialling,” says Adam.

Fairview Builders Merchants is a family business founded in 1974.

The Worcestershire company stocks construction materials, timber and garden landscaping products, and also has a DIY store with materials for plumbers and electricians.

Managing Director Stuart Bailey says: “We recognised a requirement for a powerful, modern computer system to aid our growth and profitability, and installed a multi user Sharp-aX Windows-based system.”

The system is easy for all staff to use, and is helping dramatically in customer service, stock management and quotations.

The company plans to work with Sharp-aX to upgrade their builder’s merchant website to incorporate online ordering.

With depots in Hertfordshire and Kent, Apex Grange is a one-stop shop for natural stone, tiling, flooring, concrete, stone cleaning and restoration materials.

Having used Sage 50 for over 15 years, the company sought a replacement system that could cope with the increasing workflow of a fast-growing business, as well as multiple site locations.

“We had come to a point where we had outgrown [our old system]”, explains Dave Mansfield, the company’s Senior Systems and Network Administrator.

Apex Grange took six months from order to go-live with their new Sharp-aX software, and used the time to get the staff fully trained on the new system.

Sharp-aX builders merchant software has vastly reduced day-to-day administrative work for the accounts department. In addition, the company Managing Director can monitor performance and has instant access to all the latest sales information.

The verdict? “For our type and size of organisation, Sharp-aX is an ideal solution and one that I can easily and highly recommend,” says Dave Mansfield.
