Sewell on the go is utilising an integrated software platform to drive efficiencies and streamline growth.

The award-winning business has partnered with Envisage to use its Connections from Envisage integrated software platform, which is all about making complex processes run easier and quicker

The Connections application allows businesses to automatically process and efficiently manage substantial amounts of accounting data, including sales, cash and purchase invoice and delivery data. It enables businesses to run their accounts department effortlessly, freeing up staff to concentrate on other essential tasks.

From an environmental perspective, the Connections scanning module helps retailers reduce their carbon footprint by eliminating the paperwork typically associated with transferring documents between stores.

The software connects epos systems such as CBE’s WinRetail application, with software such as Sage 50 and Sage 200, to facilitate the smooth transfer of sales, cash and delivery information between stores and the accounting system.

By optimising its processes with Envisage’s Connections software, Sewell On The Go has not required additional administrative staff as it continues to grow at pace. The adoption of a single data entry system has resulted in a 50% time saving on this activity, along with improved data accuracy. This has also allowed the team to focus on other areas such as innovation and sustainability to drive value-adding business growth activities.

The Connections solution enables the automation of previously manual tasks. Beforehand, supplier invoices and matching delivery dockets had to be entered twice. Now this has been reduced to once, saving up to two days a week. Less manual data entry also reduces the chances of data entry errors and results in more accurate information which enables faster and better-informed decision making.

Alex Mortimer, finance director of Sewell On The Go, said: “Envisage has been an invaluable partner in our business transformation journey. With the implementation of their Connections software, we have seen significant time savings and increased efficiency, allowing us to focus on other key areas of growth.

“What’s more, Envisage’s focus on responsive service and people aligns perfectly with our own values, and this is why we work so well together. Their support during the installation was seamless and any queries were dealt with quickly. Envisage got the set up right the first time, and as a result, we’ve had almost no issues since. We value their partnership and the positive impact it has had on our business.”
