Redtronic speeds to the rescue with Sage 200cloud and Sicon

Redtronic Ltd - United Kingdom

Redtronic began life distributing sirens and auxiliary products for the emergency services. Now designing and manufacturing its own-brand products, Redtronic operates globally. 

Growth demands visibility

As Redtronic grew, it became clear that Sage 50 was fine for accounts purposes, but the company needed greater visibility of its manufacturing operations to reduce wastage and optimise stock holding. The firm saw two options: to add a specialist module, such as Sage Manufacturing, to its existing set-up or invest in an integrated finance and manufacturing system.

We needed visibility of what was going on in each department, and to know our exact stock holding position at any one time.

Sage 200cloud and Sicon Manufacturing make a winning combination

Having listened to Redtronic’s requirements, its Sage Business Partner suggested a combination of Sage 200cloud Professional – which lets companies manage their accounts, customers, manufacturing, supply chain and business intelligence – and Sicon Manufacturing; a set of additional modules for Sage 200cloud that transforms it into an integrated manufacturing suite. 

The integration of Sicon within Sage 200cloud has escalated our ability to scale the business in line with demand. We are becoming the company we always desired to be.

See more, sell more, waste less

Works order planning has been revolutionised and Redtronic now has less wastage and full visibility of stock levels. Sales increased by 23% and turnover by 12% in the year after go-live, and Sage helped Redtronic to secure the coveted Automobile Association supply tender contract due to its ability to ensure products met customer demand. 

Sage has allowed us to react quicker to demand, and deal with any enquiry using full knowledge of all assets within the system.
