About Fix 247 Ltd
Joining forces with OGL Software
Prior to implementing Profit4, Fix247 were running their business on Sage 50 software, which was no longer fit for purpose.
The Director of Fix247 explained: “Sage was too slow and we began to outgrow the software with the amount of data and transactions we were doing; it started to buffer and crash.”
When the time came to switch software providers, Fix247 approached OGL Software to find a solution that better fit their needs. They commented: “We had been contacted by OGL Software in the past and knew of companies within our industry that had been using their software.”
“Our most popular feature is the fact that it is cloud-based & the speed, so it allows us the flexibility to work from home if needed but we still have all the information to hand."
Future-proofing with Profit4 ERP software
Fix247 began their migration process in the middle of the pandemic which came with its own challenges as we all went online and lost our face-to-face interactions.
Fix 247 commented: “OGL Software handled our migration very well, as this all happened during the pandemic, the support and ease with all the data going across was perfect, we were able to get back up and running within a couple of days, whilst still sending orders out as it was easy to add them on to the new system later.”
Reducing manual tasks
Once their data was set up in Profit4, Fix247 were able to reduce manual tasks and send sales orders and purchase orders from one system.
“We now have one less person in the admin team as they decided to leave, the system is so good, we have not needed to replace them, the speed and time saving it has given us has made a big impact on the business.”
“Profit4 has helped us move forward with the business. We now send all sales orders & purchase orders from the system & processing the sales orders takes half the time, which enables us to get more orders out more quickly which has streamlined our business.”
Software on all levels
ONE EASY-TO-USE SOFTWARE
Not only has Profit4 streamlined Fix 247’s entire business, but it has also allowed all teams within the business to work from the same software effectively and efficiently. Profit4 is a true browser and cloud-based solution which can be accessed whether you are at work or at home.
Used across departments
“The system is used by our 10 sales staff to access information such as product codes, prices, customer spend etc. It is used to process all sales and purchase orders by the admin and purchasing teams as well as checking stock value and levels. It is also used by out bookkeeper, who works remotely, to do all the invoicing and credit control.”
