“We have also been able to streamline finances and improve operational controls.”
Eslie Badenhorst, Operations Manager, Sherwood
Sherwood International, a specialist in providing customised in-bound supply chain solutions into Africa, has implemented the Sage X3 solution to boost efficiencies in its operations and gain better visibility into its business.
SynergERP supported Sherwood with consulting, implementation and training services for the roll-out of the new system. With Sage X3 in place, Sherwood now has an integrated, real-time business system that improves financial controls and provides them with insight into sales, shipping turnaround times, stock on order and in the warehouse, and financial transactions.
The company, part of JSE listed Super Group, decided in 2014 to replace its legacy platform with a modern, modular system that offers more business agility. It chose Sage X3 as its solution of choice because it is flexible, configurable and easy to use.
Eslie Badenhorst, Operations Manager at Sherwood, says that one of the immediate benefits of their new business management system is that it allows the company to capture and analyse product information in real-time. As a result, it has better insight into pricing and contracts, which in turn help it to offer faster turnaround times for clients and to be more informed in its negotiations with suppliers.
