Rapidly expanding mid-range ERP specialist demonstrates ongoing commitment to research and development with new release of ERP software
Solarsoft Business Systems has launched its next-generation ERP software for merchant, wholesale and distribution businesses. The software, powered by Solarsofts xVP technology, is the result of significant investment into research and development, made possible by the companys recent expansion following a series of acquisitions.
Software versions are available for heavyside builders merchants; electrical and plumbing suppliers; kitchen and bathroom specialists; industrial equipment wholesalers; specialist suppliers of electronic components; and distributors of fast moving consumer goods. The software includes over 200 new features and is available on multiple operating systems.
Steven Hargreaves, Product Director at Solarsoft, says, There is a growing demand from merchants, wholesale and distribution businesses for modern, open systems that enable them to operate more efficiently, whilst streamlining customer service and maximising profits. Solarsofts new ERP software is designed to do far more than simply taking care of accounts and stock records. The software actively helps businesses deliver the flexible service, sharp prices and reliable product delivery critical to winning orders in tough markets.
Hargreaves continues, This software is simple to implement and easy to learn, cutting training time and delivering value from day one. The key benefits include better management information, more effective sales order processing, smarter buying and efficient stock and warehouse operations.

Over 1,700 corporate customers in North America, Europe and Asia rely on Solarsoft to support their daily operations.
Solarsofts products help businesses to manage front and back office processes through one integrated system, driving performance in sales, finance, purchasing and stock control, warehouse management, e-commerce and EDI, supply chain logistics and manufacturing resource planning (MRP).
Hargreaves continues, Our vision for Solarsoft has always been to help our customers automate the core business processes critical to their success with features like barcodes and web-based customer services. With the new xVP technology, we offer the addition of new user-friendly features that add value in sales and on the trade counter. The intuitive Windows interface and a Google-like search engine cut the time needed to find products and customer accounts.
