History and General Information
Lerwick DIY was languishing under the VAT threshold until it found itself ‘under new management’ and a new broom swept through the business. At the same time the new owners knew that an investment in technology at the outset would pay dividends in the future, maintaining the stock, keeping margins up and costs down. Also saving in labour time; making up orders, checking in stock, checking prices and being more accurate and efficient at the till.

Since then the business has gone from strength to strength with the minimum of staff and just a single till. They utilise the Till2Till integration with Stax, and also Toolbank and Home Hardware Integrations. So they know when prices change and can react to it. Hence more time saved booking in and more margin.

What they said
“Before we moved to RBA we had 4500 lines and were struggling to maintain stock levels and generate orders on time. Having been with RBA for a year now our stock has increased to 6500 lines and time spent maintaining stock levels has been dramatically reduced. Now the till tells us what to order, and we can focus on adding new lines and improving the business.”
