Challenge

Russell Sigler required a highly flexible business software solution that could accommodate its unique business requirements as well as effectively manage its supply chain, inventory holdings, and support the fast-paced call centre and counter sales operations.

Solution

Sage X3 was selected after a comprehensive selection process that included a review of J.D. Edwards and Infor Distribution. Shortly after the implementation, Russell Sigler went through a major expansion, more than doubling its revenues and employee count, and adding 25 additional locations. Sage X3 provides the company with supply chain management, forecasting tools, and point of sale functionality based on a highly scalable and flexible platform.

Results

Sage X3 handled a tripling of locations and doubling of users without interruption. Integrated forecasting, inventory replenishment controls, sophisticated order fulfillment, and inventory sourcing allows the company to position inventory to satisfy customers’ demands. Quick access to data drives efficiency throughout the organisation, and speeds service in the counter sales and call centre areas. Business-specific functionality was accommodated through the product’s development toolset.
