Channel Distribution Services wants to cut paper usage with Trader business management solution

Channel Distribution Services (CDS) says that it is looking to “go green” and cut down on its paper usage after choosing to employ Trader, MAM Software’s flagship business management software. The business says that cutting its paper usage will help it save around £300 a month in postage costs.

Established in the 1980’s and based in Guernsey, CDS supplies high quality cladding and drainage systems across the Channel Isles. Its wide range of products covers all aspects of fixings, ironmongery, sealants, adhesives and tools.

In need of a new solution to help manage its core business processes, CDS says it chose Trader over other available products as it felt the system was the most suited to its business. As Jim Le Lievre, Managing Director explained: “We want a fresh start. We need to rollout a system more suited to our type of business, as our current software isn’t designed for what we want to do.

“Trader looks simple to use and appears understandable. We don’t want to implement an overly complicated system, and Trader has looked the most user-friendly package available to us from day one.

“Trader is designed for a business like us, and it will do what we want it to brilliantly.”

In particular, CDS was looking for a solution that would help it cut its paper usage, helping the company to save money on postage costs.

Jim continued: “We want to cut down on our paper usage and subsequently save money on our postage costs. We’re currently spending around £600 a month in postage and we want to try and cut that by half, by taking advantage of features such as the electronic signature capture and being able to email invoices. Having less post to send will also save our accounts personnel time that could be spent elsewhere in the business.

“We’re confident that Trader will help us cut down on the amount of paper we’re using and help us go green.”

“We’re delighted that CDS has chosen Trader as its business management solution,” said Ben Whitehouse, Senior Sales Manager at MAM Software. “Trader features a wealth of functionality that will help CDS manage its business efficiently and effectively. We’re confident that Trader will bring a range of benefits to CDS, and we’re looking forward to working with the company in the future.”
