TBS Oxford achieves record sales with IT software overhaul

Oxford-based cutting tools distributor, TBS Oxford has achieved record sales figures, putting it on track for future expansion and diversification with a planned ecommerce site.

Supplying high performance cutting tools to a growing customer-base in Oxfordshire and surrounding counties, TBS Oxford recognised the limitations of its legacy IT and accountancy software in managing its wholesale operations.

With the help of its IT software partner, OGL Computer, TBS Oxford migrated existing business processes onto an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software solution, Profit4, which has a centralised platform eliminating the need for excess time spent duplicating tasks or searching for information on disparate systems. The ERP system affords TBS Oxford the necessary tool to increase visibility, gain control and drive the business to the next level and has seen TBS Oxford transform its daily operations, achieving unprecedented time and cost savings, during its busiest periods.

With Profit4 in place, the business was able to achieve its peak period to date, when it turned over 20% against its target. Once the system is deployed to its full potential, order processing times will be further reduced.

Richard Hare, Managing Director, TBS Oxford comments: “Our future plans are to continue to grow the business and we’re now in a position where that is a possibility. One of the key restrictions for our plans was the underpinning system we had wasn’t big enough, bold enough or resourced enough to handle what we were trying to do. We now have Profit4 as the hub of our business; everything revolves around Profit4 and everything in the future will too.”
