Blue Rock Systems are delighted to announce that they have been awarded the contract to install iQ at Premier Contract Supplies (PCS). Covering the UK from their 7 offices, the family run firm was setup in 1998 by Vince Caldicott in Frimley; they have since expanded into one of the leading bathroom contract supply companies in the UK.
Forming the backbone of their success is the close relationship they formed with key housebuilders and manufacturers of bathroom equipment. The project is to replace the accounting solution Exchequer and several integrated solutions from other software authors. These had served them well for several years, but increasingly the drive for efficiency and improved customer services meant that PCS started to research the market for alternatives.
The process for selection started in Q4 2019 but was postponed briefly due to Covid-19. Following a series of workshops and demonstrations it shortly became obvious that the inherent flexibility of iQ, its scalability and breadth of functionality made it a strong contender when pitted against other world-class applications. It was the sheer speed and ease of use, combined with Blue Rock’s experience in the marketplace, that finalised the decision.
The 50-user system will be used throughout the business tackling finance, order processing, stock, logistics, warehousing, projects, CRM and Business Intelligence; all within the same application.
Peter Caldicott, Operations Director, commented “We spent a lot of time researching ERP systems and coming up short, struggling to find a system that would meet all our required needs and at a competitive price. When we came across iQ, presented by Blue Rock, we were instantly impressed. It handles everything that we need out of the box. The capability to handle complicated pricing structures, rebates and claim-backs, detailed stock forecasting and simple & effective order management is very impressive. Blue Rock Systems have been fantastic at helping us along the way and we are confident that this will be a strong partnership for a long time to come.”
