Engineers merchant looks to save time with MAM Software
John Lawson Distributors “can’t wait to go live” with Trader
John Lawson Distributors says that it will be able to cut the time it takes to carry out its administration by “four or five days a month” after moving to MAM Software and employing Trader, MAM’s feature-rich business management solution that offers fully-integrated point-of-sale, stock control and accounting functionality.
Based in Lancashire with 35 years of experience, John Lawson Distributors Limited was established in 1980, and has since developed a reputation for quality, service and reliability at competitive prices. It provides a wide range of products including hand and power tools, fasteners, fixings and hardware.
By utilising Trader, the company expects to take advantage of the time saving measures the solution carries. The business says that it expects to save a large amount of hours by utilising Trader’s automatic document scanning functionality, ultimately allowing staff to focus on other fundamental areas of the business.
As Steve Riches, Director at John Lawson explained: “We currently spend large amounts of time manually sorting through our documents. With Trader scanning these documents for us, we expect to save four or five days a month. The amount of hours saved will help reduce overheads and allow us to utilise our staff in different areas of the business without then needing to employ more staff to help us manage the workload more efficiently.”
The company expects to see other benefits too. It says that Trader will help staff analyse cost expenditure, allowing John Lawson to get the best deal on the products it supplies, benefiting its customers in the long run.
“We want to get the best deal on our products so that our customers can benefit from that too,” said Steve.
“Our sister company uses the Autopart business management solution, and we’ve seen what it’s done for its business and we’ve been really impressed. Trader is designed for a business like ours, and other MAM customers who we’ve spoken to couldn’t recommend the software highly enough.
“MAM’s staff have been great, they’re always on hand to help, and whenever we have asked a question they have always supplied an answer. We’ve had a great experience so far, and we are looking forward to going live.”
“We’re delighted that John Lawson has had a great experience with MAM thus far, and we’re sure that it will be able to take advantage of many of Trader’s benefits,” said Ben Whitehouse, Senior Sales Manager at MAM Software. “Trader’s rich functionality is ideal for a business like John Lawson, and we’re confident that the company will enjoy its time using the software.”
