Food and Drink wholesalers

 

Integrated accounting stock control software & website systems for trading companies       

 

Food & Drinks Wholesalers have unique software requirements. There are many of them in this country and Sharp-aX Computer Systems is the perfect fit for all of them.

Food & Drinks Wholesalers need to optimise their stock, have fast and efficient sales operations, competitive pricing and excellent customer service. They need readily accessible management information.

Sharp-aX software is tried and tested. It is installed in sites throughout the country, including KBF Bodybuilders in Manchester and Willersey Provisions Ltd in Worcester.

 

We know about you!

 

You have to have a fast and efficient Telesales facility, Use by / Sell by dates, batch tracking, Catch weights, standing orders and stock write offs. You also need the ability to add notes / warnings against order lines, take into account shelf sizes and restricted items against customers.

An integrated website for your customers to place out of hours orders, with access to their price lists and historic orders, will help you to provide even better customer service and increase turnover and profitability. Click and collect and direct deliveries will also improve profitability and service.

 

Our main features

 

Customer Relationship Manager with Marketing Module & Task Manager, Pricing Service, Rebates, Telesales, fully integrated websites, Key Performance Indicators, workflow rules and multiple product images in full colour plus our new Van routing and Directs (drop shipping) modules.

Store all of your knowledge into the system to ensure top class service, haggling (with margin control) and selling the product you would rather sell. This gives you the best of all worlds, better margins, improved reputation for customer service and the ability to move preferred stock.

One entry to see quotations and/or orders through to delivery note / invoice / sales ledger and  nominal posting. Where orders are specials, there is recognition at goods received time. All of this saves time, removes copying mistakes and frees your staff to work on more money making tasks.

Drill down for complete information at point of sale, but only when you need to see it. Simple screens mean ease of use for all staff. Customer level report writing plus interface to Excel.

Most of our customers start simply and use more and more facilities as their staff become familiar with the Sharp-aX software. As your business grows, use our report writing facility to  recognise the strengths and weaknesses of your business for you to take prompt action.

No waiting for your accountants to highlight sales below cost at the end of the year.


The Sharp-aX Company

 

We are geographically central and have over 138 customers in England and Wales. We are an excellent size to work with – big enough to respond quickly, but you can speak to our Managing Director, if you ever need to.

Our philosophy is to have only one version of the software with four annual updates included in the annual maintenance charge, at no extra cost.

We have our own design, programming and support resources. The software is written and continually developed in Hertfordshire.

No huge customers – therefore all customers are equal.

No system archiving – history is required to compare product performance over previous months, seasons and years.

 

Product Design Philosophy

 

The Sharp-aX software runs on a Microsoft SQL based system, programmed in C# which uses .NET + DevExpress frameworks. It is easy to install and work with, flexible and lightning fast. We save your time and contribute to your profits. Most importantly, our customers have the right computer system for the next 20 years.

Fast, fully Windows based with seamless integration with Word and product imaging. Technical documents and drawings can be easily attached. Other Windows applications can co-exist on the server.

We enhance the software on a continual basis against our own development plan for new and existing customer requirements.  

If you would like further information and/or a demonstration of the system, please contact

Jean Freeman -  jfreeman@sharp-aX.com or call 01442 505950.

We look forward to hearing from you and talking about your requirements.
