New Managing Director appointment at Solarsoft

Following the recent acquisition of The Chelford Group, Solarsoft Business Systems has appointed Martyn Broadhead as Managing Director of its Warehouse & Logistics Systems division (formerly Agility Systems Ltd).

Broadhead, previously Sales & Marketing Director with Agility, has 15 years experience in the supply chain industry and is now tasked with achieving the ambitious global growth targets set by Solarsoft.

In addition, industry expert Simon Shore joined Solarsoft last month and his first assignment will be assisting Broadhead in the push for growth of market share in the supply chain industry.  Shore, until recently Managing Director at RedPrairie Online, a leading warehouse management system software provider, brings 10 years of supply chain experience and has served in various EMEA Director roles for RedPrairie, LIS and Kewill Logistics. 

Broadhead comments, Whilst this is a challenging time for the supply chain industry, we feel that we have the warehousing and logistics solutions that will help businesses emerge from this environment more successfully and profitably than many of their competitors. Solarsofts worldwide customer base and infrastructure will open up new geographic markets for the Warehouse & Logistics Systems Division and also provide the basis for our worldwide support structure. Altogether, our customers and prospects can now be confident in our ability to provide 24/7 support across 16 time zones.

Broadhead concludes, Solarsoft has both a market-leading product set and an established and extensive global customer base. The company is ideally positioned to capitalise on the opportunities for growth in the supply chain sector.
