Nene Storage

A key requirement for Nene Storage Equipment was to ensure that they partnered with a knowledgeable supplier, that could not only assess their current situation and recommend what solution would work best for them.

It was essential that they had a partner who could guide and support them throughout the implementation and embedding process.

Requirements

  • Stock Visibility
  • Increased efficiencies in operations
  • Less stock holding/increased cash flow etc
  • Keen to not have a lengthy, disruptive implementation process

Gary Coleman, Operations Director at Nene said

“The company has been growing really fast and while we have a healthy demand for our products, it was difficult to keep all information about sales orders, stock etc in one central place. I needed to improve the visibility of stock backlogs in order to increase efficiency in our operations. Our legacy systems were time consuming and we felt as though this was holding us back from making the most of new business opportunities coming our way.
With the implementation of a SAP Business One solution from Thinc, we are now able to plan the stock requirements more accurately, access sales reports, make accurate forecasts for stock which has improved our cashflow, reduced errors and made the team work more efficiently with their time.”

The results 

  • 10% increase in turnover
  • Warehouse backlogs eliminated and now operating 2 weeks ahead of order schedule
  • Reduction in staff headcount and overtime pay
  • Significant reduction in manual/human errors in the system
Background

Nene Storage Equipment is a family owned business that has been trading since the 1960's and now occupies an enviable position as an industry-leader in the warehouse storage solution space.

With annual revenues in the region of £15 million and a staff headcount of 75, Nene's management team recognised that a review of their technology systems was an essential exercise, particularly if they wanted their success to continue in the future.

Jame Peel, SAP Services Manager

"The implementation at Nene was built on a clear understanding of system requirements, thorough planning and a good working relationship between client and supplier.

This is what allowed us to meet Nene’s expectations at the various
stages of the process – proper communication and cooperation
meant we were all able to work towards the same clearly defined goals.

t’s always a pleasure to work with a business that takes the implementation of their critical business systems as seriously
as a project such as this merits.

It’s just one reason why we look
forward to working with Nene into the future and assisting them to get even more from the SAP Business One solution”

"It was important for us to make an investment in a solution that would support our future growth plans, cause minimal disruption to our day to day operations and help us to improve how we work. Thinc are very experienced with this. They really took the time to understand our challenges and develop a solution that would work for us."

Gary Coleman, Operations Director at Nene
