Sanderson, the publicly owned UK provider of software solutions to the retail industry, has won a contract to supply its Midas solution to Cats Protection - the UK's leading feline welfare charity.
The Sanderson solution will be implemented into selected Cats Protection retail shops and their National Centre at Chelwood Gate, West Sussex to meet their stock, warehousing and retail needs.
Midas will provide a fully integrated solution enabling Cats Protection to centralise its distribution centre, control purchasing and manage stock for retail, mail order and marketing. By giving greater visibility and stock control, the Sanderson solution will allow Cats Protection to easily identify areas of stock losses and generate cost savings.
Midas will also interface into the Cats Protection CRM system, processing orders via mail order and expanding their capabilities.
Mark Salway, Head of Finance at Cats Protection said:
"We were looking for a new retail management system that would support our
plans. The modular design of the Sanderson solution provides the flexibility
we need as we develop our business for the future."
David Sanders, Managing Director at Sanderson Retail Systems added:
"Sanderson understands and is committed to charity retailers, and we're
delighted that Cats Protection has chosen Sanderson to support their
expansion plans. By integrating current activities and allowing additional
functionality to be added in the future, Midas will put Cats Protection in
an ideal position to drive their charity forward."
