Oasis, a software and services company specialising in supply chain solutions, has today announced that Acoustic Solutions, the UKs fastest growing consumer electronics supplier, has selected its flagship business solutions Oasis .NET to underpin the needs of its business both today and in the future. By improving its financials, supply chain and distribution processes Acoustic aims to optimise its business performance, financial planning, sourcing, stock management and flow of goods to stores.
Acoustic Solutions is a British company which was founded in 1994 and is currently ranked 24th in the Sunday Times Fast Track League table, which measures Britains 100 fastest-growing unquoted companies. With a turnover close to 20M, Acoustic Solutions recognised that it needed to boost its core business systems to meet the growing financial demands of the business and the increasing sophistication of its supply chain and distribution processes. Its rapid business growth from 5M to 20M meant that its original practice of using the Sage accounts package to handle its financial management and stock control was simply no longer feasible. So in 2004 Acoustic embarked on a project to identify an integrated financials, supply chain and distribution solution partner to underpin its current and future business and IT demands.
Acoustic chose Oasis .NET from experienced supply chain specialists, Oasis, with two goals in mind: to provide its managers with sophisticated reporting technology that provides accurate and timely information and improve corporate decision making; and to automate its supply chain and distribution processes, in particular to improve the management and reduce the cost of product returns handling whilst supporting its unrivalled customer service philosophy.
Acoustics managing director Trevor Collins says, We researched a number of systems and selected Oasis as the best integrated system to meet our business requirements coupled with an experienced and highly talented team of supply chain professionals. Oasis also offered Acoustic a modern system that embraces the latest Microsoft technology; this gave us the confidence we needed from an integrated system, in terms of future proofing, that is set to form the foundation of our core business operations.
Oasis will streamline Acoustics financial processes offering sophisticated reporting technology which Trevor believes will deliver increased visibility across the business. Oasis is particularly rich in its ability to produce instant and comprehensive reports thereby giving us accurate and timely visibility of our business performance and enabling us to improve decision making and the quality of our financial reporting. He adds, We have just gone live with Oasis.NET in the UK and our next planned phase is to extend the system to our Far East operation. Oasis .NET will then enable us to control and track stock right through the supply chain and deliver significant business efficiencies and increases in productivity throughout the business.
It is gratifying to know that industry leaders such as Acoustic continue to put their trust in Oasis and this further endorses our focus on advanced technology and people excellence. said Oasiss managing director, Jo Franklin. Acoustic has experienced significant growth over the past two years and truly understands the important role technology can play in underpinning that continued growth and in achieving financial and supply chain excellence. It is companies like Acoustic that continue to drive us to develop and deliver solutions built on industry best practices, allowing us to help companies across the UK become more agile.
