Disability employer Shelforce has invested in a new software system from First Degree Systems in response to demand for its Fireshel 30-minure fire, smoke and security resistant door, which it now produces at 200 a week since its launch in 2020.
Business manager Howard Trotter said: “The new system will improve our processing power, bring us greater procurement control, and make things more efficient in terms of quoting, customer orders, ordering raw materials, production control and confirming work and converting it into orders.
“It will also incorporate and help organise weekly product and delivery schedules and it will be great to have everything in one system and under one umbrella.”
Shelforce is also looking at putting a new phone system in place that will be production friendly for staff on the shop floor, and Howard added: “It’s all about increasing efficiency and our business growth has enabled us to invest in these new software systems. Things will take minutes rather than a day, which will help our customer service as demand increases.”
