TLM Technologies has announced the deployment of its Evo Head Office solution with Top 50 Indie HKS Retail, for the management of seven of its recently acquired sites.

Evo Head Office is built on the Microsoft Dynamics Navision technology stack with convenience and fuel specific modules developed by the team at TLM subsidiary, Ocean Dynamics.

Supporting business processes such as finance, promotions, stock control and logistics, the system gives independent groups like HKS greater control and visibility across their estates, enabling them to use their data to make smarter decisions to optimise margins.

Shane Thakrar, HKS managing director, said: “We set the TLM/Ocean Dynamics team a very tight implementation window to fit to the acquisition of the sites and they hit the target.

“Evo Head Office provides up to date technology to allow us to effectively manage stock and margins at site level from head office, saving significant time and effort at both head office and site. The system also provides the functionality to obtain management information to monitor performance remotely. We now look forward to rolling the solution out across the rest of our estate.”

Bob Laidlaw, TLM business development director, said: “This is yet another significant step forward for our head office solution; implementing Evo Head Office for a market-leading group like HKS lends real credibility to the system. We are delighted that the HKS team are so pleased with Evo Head Office; their adoption of this technology will undoubtedly influence the market. We look forward to demonstrating the solution to interested parties at the upcoming National Convenience Show.”
