How did you first hear about OGL and our software, prof.ITplus?
“OGL originally contacted us along with a number of other suppliers. We shortlisted our options and viewed around 6 different systems before deciding to invest with OGL. The decision came down to what we really needed as a business and prof.ITplus fitted our needs the best. The employees at OGL were really trying to understand our business which made us confident they could deliver.”
CCF were previously using a bespoke system that was built around their business but did not have the full integrated functionality of prof.ITplus. CCF commented: “We decided to upgrade as we had grown over the years, meaning the system could no longer process orders to our satisfaction and was a little outdated.”
Were there any specific challenges that you wanted prof.ITplus to help solve?
“Stock control was one of our main issues along with the need for integrated sales/purchase ledger systems. We had a requirement for a trading and transport process which OGL created for us bespoke in prof.ITplus. Our previous system made it difficult to control the traceability of our products, making things a lot harder in the office. prof.ITplus has helped us with our traceability thanks to the reporting tool; this has been of particular help where products are kept in multiple locations. Transparency is key in our business.“
If you had to pick a favourite feature of prof.ITplus, what would it be and why?
“The ability to swiftly reconcile the back-office journals, purchase ledgers and accounts has been a key improvement for myself (I’m sure other departments would have different key improvements!)"
