Office furniture distribution and corporate relocation experts SFI Logistics has gone live with Access Delta from Access Group, providing the company with a fully-integrated warehouse management solution. Access Delta was chosen to provide a more automated, centralised stock control system and replaced a bespoke Microsoft Access based system, which had become outmoded and lacked the real-time information that SFI Logistics was looking for.
The new system is also used to manage the London-based company’s fast moving goods in transit side of the business where customer products are stored in the warehouse for a matter of hours or days before being shipped to their final destination.
Finance Director for SFI Logistics, Nizam Dollie, commented, "We wanted a complete end-to-end solution that would help us integrate our business processes and provide better reporting for our customers. With our previous system it was very time consuming to extract the data and report, which did impact our business. With Access Delta we’re looking to improve our productivity as well as gain more visibility of current workloads, allowing our warehousing team to focus on their core tasks."
Employing 19 staff including a team of three looking after a 45,000 ft warehouse, SFI Logistics is a multi-million pound organisation and is looking to further increase its penetration within the UK. "We believe in providing an impeccable service to our clients and Access Delta will help to support us in that aim. By providing visibility and transparency of incoming and outgoing orders we’ll be able to respond faster to our customer needs and help our project managers and sales staff to support their clients throughout the whole transaction lifecycle."
SFI Logistics carried out in-depth research prior to opting for Access Delta. "IT investment is one of the largest capital expenses for businesses, so it was critical we made the right choice. In addition to the seamless integration with our accounting package and functionality of the software, we also wanted a partner we felt we could work with long term. Access Group is the right fit for us and the team have been enthusiastic in helping us to configure the software to our requirements. They’re prepared to go that extra mile."
Working with many household names, SFI Logistics also specialises in commercial storage and office furniture distribution and installation, including particular expertise in the installation of dealing desks in London and a number of European financial centres. The company is in the process of preparing to implement a new website that will be launched in the Autumn and will provide clients with online tracking and reporting so they have visibility of their goods from arrival at SFI through to despatch, regardless of time of day, location or device.
