Firwood Paints is a 90-year-old industrial paint manufacturer. Its products are sold throughout the UK, Europe, North America, and the Far East. With annual revenues of £30 million, and a staff of 35, Firwood Paints runs a lean and efficient operation.
Firwood Paints had disparate systems for its financial and operational data, and its CRM data, making it difficult to obtain a clear view of the entire company’s operations.
Sage X3, with its broad integrated functionality, including CRM, financial, distribution, business intelligence, and a specialised feature set to support companies in the manufacturing sector, made it an ideal fit for Firwood Paints
