Cedilla Systems implements powerful application for antique furniture supplier that saves both time and money

15 October 2004, Manchester: Leading business systems integrator Cedilla Systems, has today announced that Tomlinsons, a principal British supplier of antique furniture, has saved an estimated 90 days and £55,000 per year through improved management reporting, facilitated by Microsoft Business Solutions-Navision.

Tomlinsons boasts the UK’s largest antiques furniture warehouse and is open to the public seven days a week. There are essentially three core activities to Tomlinson’s business: wholesaling unrestored antique furniture, restoring antique furniture and making reproduction furniture. The company was looking for a single, integrated and efficient stock control and financial solution to support these businesses.

Tomlinsons had ambitious expansion plans that its incumbent IT solution could not support. After scouring the market for alternatives, the company opted for a Microsoft Navision based system from Cedilla. Tomlinsons were impressed with Cedilla’s ability to offer something both unique and different with a strong partnership approach.

Since Cedilla implemented the system at Tomlinsons the company has seen improvements in the following areas:
• Savings of £55,000
• Significant time savings in the creation and analysis of management accounts
• Significant savings due to the integration of the general ledger with the SOP, POP and stock control
• Improved visibility of sales performance over the three divisions of the company

Steve Bowyer, IT Director of Tomlinsons commented: “As a result of our installation of Microsoft Navision, total savings should certainly exceed £55,000, which for an organisation of our size is no insignificant achievement. We needed a quality project solution delivered on time and within budget. I am pleased to say that our partnership with Cedilla delivered exactly that.”
