Andrew Page selects Datel to deploy Sage ERP X3

Support the branches with comprehensive depot functionality for day-to-day operations

By CBR Staff Writer

UK’s quality car, workshop equipment, tools and diagnostics distributors Andrew Page has chosen software provider Datel to implement a Sage ERP X3 enterprise resource planning system as its new business management platform.

Once Sage ERP X3 is in place, Andrew Page will have a system sophisticated enough to meet complex requirements and to scale up in the future to handle rising volumes of transactions. User numbers are set to grow from the present thirty or to over four hundred.

Sage ERP X3’s distribution capabilities will support the branches with comprehensive depot functionality for day-to-day operations, including stock control, customer and supplier returns and warranties.

Currently, the system takes one and a half members of staff ten days each month to produce meaningful management reports. Work is under way to ensure that Sage ERP X3 efficiently generates the necessary management information in the appropriate formats.

Andrew Page IT Director Stephen Coleman said in an undertaking on the scale, Andrew Page need someone who knows the system inside out, so the choice of business partner was an equally important part of the decision.

"In all our dealings, we have been impressed by Datel and everyone we’ve met there," said Stephen.

Datel technical director Guy Paton said Andrew Page has an exciting future ahead and Datel is looking forward to ensuring that Sage ERP X3 supports the company’s ambitions for growth.
