Our Success Stories
Rightway DIY first started using Trackit in 2001 when they had 6 DIY shops. Now they have 17 retail outlets across North Wales and the Wirral providing full stock control and epos requirements. They operate without the need (and cost) of a central warehouse, each shop having full access to stock levels, reordering (using min/max levels) and transfers between shops.
Trackit has opened up a whole new world of control and information to Rightway DIY. Information is produced very quickly at the touch of a button giving such reports as each site performance, profit margins and individual product performance.
This allows for appropriate and creative decision making to maximise on market opportunities, and offers a measure of control that was unattainable before.
"It has meant we’re a lot better using the same labour. It’s made us far more efficient, it’s made us more profitable and it’s helped in reducing the working capital that we need to run the business. Over the first 3-4 years it helped us raise our profit margin by 2 to 3 percentage points, which was very noticeable in the bottom line and more than covered the cost of buying the system."
Now the plan for 2012 is to have a fully functioning website and Rightway have engaged a local web company to manage this. it will be based on the Magento shopping cart software, and will seamlessly integrate with e-Trackit, providing product and live stock level updates and the download of orders.
