MAM Trader will manage everyday tasks for family-run business and help it meet ongoing objectives

Pertonstore.com Ltd, a family-run specialist in ceiling and dry lining supplies, has selected MAM Trader to help meet the needs of its growing business. The NMBS member favoured the innovative ERP application for builders' merchants over other products for its user-friendly interface and scalability.

"I have looked at many other software providers over the past two years and not one of them ticked all the boxes for what I required," explained Anthony Wroe, director of Pertonstore.com Ltd.

"However, in Trader I believe we have now found the best solution to fit our business."

Trader is fully-supported builders' merchant software backed by a team of UK-based professionals, seven days a week. The system's core features help businesses of any size improve productivity, increase profits and enhance relationships with their customers.

Describing his existing system as "slow and outdated", Anthony noted that he desperately needed software that would fit seamlessly into his business, which supplies both trade and public.

"Our company is fast growing, so we require an adaptable solution that will take over everyday tasks and help us to run and grow our business more efficiently," he continued.

Several of Trader's features stood out for Pertonstore. The system can be extended across multiple branches should the company decide to open more locations, and there is potential to integrate B2B and B2C websites with its customer database. It will also be able to keep track of stock more effectively and manage its delivery schedule.

One of the main advantages of Trader for Anthony and his team was its easy-to-use interface. Counter staff will be able to quickly search for products and information at point of sale, while the system also allows them to automatically email invoices and statements to customers.

"I can't fault the professionalism of all the people I have spoken to at MAM and look forward to growing our business over the long term with our new builders' merchant software provider.

"Having been through many demos and conversations with other solutions, up to now MAM have been a breeze to work with," added Anthony.

Ben Whitehouse, senior sales manager at MAM Software, commented: "We designed Trader to make day-to-day operations easier for builders' merchants such as Pertonstore. The feature-rich software has several innovative features to improve processes that can ultimately enhance efficiency, customer service and profitability.

"Our team of UK-based professionals are on hand to make sure every one of our customers gets the most out of their software. Whether they need help with implementation or technical advice, friendly staff are available to assist in whatever way they can."
