After experiencing rapid growth Bulldog realised that a review of their business systems was a priority if their success was going to continue and be replicated in other countries.
Having developed into one of the UK’s most popular male skincare brands, with an annual turnover of close to £10 million, by 2015, Bulldog knew that it was essential that they update their current systems in order to effectively deal with customer demands.

“ At first we regarded SAP Business One with some trepidation due to a general feeling that its adoption could be complex and drawn out. However, after engaging with Thinc it soon became apparent that this didn’t have to be the case.
Their consultants came across as knowledgeable from the outset, presenting clear and uncomplicated ideas for how best to implement the solution along with tight project timescales. With our minds put at ease by the Thinc approach, we knew that in SAP Business One we had found a scalable solution that would meet our business requirements and allow us to grow, not just now, but for many years to come. ”
