What you get:

Sell more

Live stock availability and customer credit control, combined with smart pricing, provides your sales team with all the information they need to deliver quotes and orders with great customer service.

Happy customers order more frequently, with higher average order values.

Stock smarter

Whether you deal with unit items, length or weight controlled products, held in one location, bay, batch or lot, having precise knowledge of your stock levels and the optimal amount to carry is crucial.


This ensures that your customers can place orders with confidence, without needing to overcommit to excess stock.

Buy better

Combine sales trends with stock levels to automate reordering.

Whether placing simple purchase orders, or longer forward contracts - ensure you are buying the right quantities from the best source at the keenest price, every time.
