Want to continue to grow and future-proof the business
Stock 1,000's of product lines
Need a system with more efficient stock control
Aim to deliver the highest level of customer service
Joining forces with OGL Software
A customer-focused approach
Created in 1905, Gemsec is proud of its history and prides itself on the wealth of experience and knowledge they’ve gained in the last century, but in order to stay competitive and drive the business forward, the company understands the importance of embracing technology.
Matt Notton at Gemsec explains, “we plan to continue to grow as a business in the future including expanding our team and premises”, which is why a robust ERP solution is key to helping Gemsec continue to deliver quality customer service and to future-proof the business.
Gemsec had previously used Orderwise as their business management system but, “the system was very basic so we outgrew the software because it couldn’t keep up with what we needed it to do."
"Having looked at multiple other options, we saw the longevity in OGL’s software and felt that the system could grow with us and support us. OGL Software does a lot more for us and helps us to continue to grow.”
“The stock management functionality means we are rarely out of stock of anything and we can easily track products to identify patterns and trends”

Gemsec states they are “completely focused on providing high levels of service and customer satisfaction to the modern commercial environment and OGL Software helps us to run the behind-the-scenes processes to allow our team to focus on sharing their expert knowledge and experience of the industry to our customers.”

Gemsec's Matt Notton states “OGL Software is vital to our daily operations; we use it at every stage of our order processing plus for accounting, managing and communicating with customers and suppliers, stock control and tracking, trade counter and reporting on sales and company performance.”
“The stock management functionality means we are rarely out of stock of anything and we can easily track products to identify patterns and trends.”
"My favourite feature of OGL Software is the stock detail reports that give us so much information on each product’s history and projection that we can easily set maximum / minimum stock levels so we’re never over or understocked, helping cashflow and space management"
