Sanderson, the publicly owned UK supplier of software solutions and services, has won a contract to supply its Wholesale Distribution solution, to Eastenders Cash & Carry PLC at their new branch in Coventry, West Midlands.
Eastenders Cash & Carry PLC primarily sell beer, wines, spirits and tobacco to retailers. With Cash & Carrys in East London, Slough and Birmingham, and a new branch in Coventry with a proposed further two depots this year, Eastenders has chosen to run the expanding business on the Swords software from Sanderson.
Each depot will use a broadband connection to link to a central database housed at the East London branch. This will allow Eastenders to run four separate businesses whilst requiring them to maintain only one product database.
The Sanderson software will enable multiple promotions for each depot to run concurrently, thus cutting both management and administration time. Sanderson has also supplied resilient tills to each depot to ensure they are able to operate independently, should the need arise.
Alex Windsor, Director of Eastenders Cash & Carry PLC commented:
The Sanderson software is a proven, reliable multi-depot solution that is flexible enough to cope with our changing requirements. As an expanding company we are sure that both Sanderson and the Swords solution will meet our needs both now and in the future.
Jackie Taylor, Sales Director for Wholesale Distribution Solutions at Sanderson concludes:
Using one central database for all four cash & carrys will eradicate work duplication, provide central control of pricing, optimise stock levels and therefore improve customer service levels. The implementation of a dual server system and resilient tills at branches will ensure that business is maintained through any eventuality. We look forward to working in partnership with Eastenders in the continued expansion of their business.
