Pitstop Auto Factors is reporting an increase in both productivity and profitability after installing MAMâ€™s Autopart software.
Autopart is Pitstopâ€™s first computer system. The company was previously using a completely manual process where all stock and account information was stored in the memory of the companyâ€™s owner, David Way.
He said: â€œWe had resisted an on-site computer solution for years. We have used MAM Softwareâ€™s Autocat+ system since 2008 but never installed any form of business management software, instead choosing to invest in new stock.
â€œUp until now all information on stock levels and part details had just been committed to memory, which served us well enough before the business entered a period of continued growth.â€
Way said that as he continued to hire new staff and invest in new stock lines, his old system became unmanageable. After visiting MAM at a trade show in October last year, Way finally made the decision to invest in a computerized system.
He says that six months in to using the Autopart system, his only regret is that he didnâ€™t install it sooner.
MAMâ€™s managing director Mike Jamieson said: â€œParts suppliers, wholesale distributors and accessory retailers all benefit from Autopartâ€™s wealth of functionality. While it offers extensive capabilities, it remains intuitive enough for companies such as Pitstop – who have never used business management software before – to see an immediate return on their investment.â€
