Chorley-based fulfilment and technology services specialists, Exact Abacus, are to revamp the order fulfilment and back office system of Bolton-based manufacturer, Adboards, to meet the demands of their rapidly growing customer base.
The response comes from changing customer demands and with the integration of the revolutionary system, Adboards are planning to invest in a new integrated e-commerce site and roll out Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) technology within the supply chain.
Exact Abacus will also implement the latest version of their proprietary technology which is designed, developed and prototyped within their own chain of fulfilment warehouses in the North of England.
Lee Thompson, Exact Abacus’ sales and marketing director, comments on the new contract win: “We’re pleased to be working with another long-standing and great Lancastrian business. Our proven software and management systems will give Adboards a competitive edge and integrate every process from purchasing, stock control, ecommerce, order processing and finance.”
The project will complete the transformation of Adboards from a traditional manufacturer and wholesaler into a much leaner, direct online retailer. This will involve the overhaul and automation of many processes as Managing Director, Paul Howe, continues: “we have long recognised that technology is the ‘enabler’ in business and Exact Abacus have clearly demonstrated the way in which we want to interact with suppliers, sell products, dispatch orders and achieve profitable growth. We hope to forge a long-lasting partnership and benefit from their expertise.”
