Our Success Stories
Rightway DIY first started using Trackit in 2001 when they had 6 DIY shops. NowÂ they haveÂ 17 retail outlets across North Wales and the Wirral providing full stock control and epos requirements.Â 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 weâ€™re a lot better using the same labour. Itâ€™s made us far more efficient, itâ€™s made us more profitable and itâ€™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.Â 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.
