Leading UK Textile ERP Vendor Pockets First Two Wins with New Genero Application

London, England . 27th February 2007 — Wharncliffe Business Systems Ltd., the UK’s No. 1 ERP, accounts & trading solution for textiles suppliers is rubbing its hands with two prestigious wins only months after selecting Genero to develop its next generation applications.

The wins include The Alternate Flooring Company and Godfrey Hirst GB, two high profile manufacturers in the residential and commercial flooring trade.

“Once we’d seen how Genero could radically improve the interface and general usability of our Realitex solution, the decision was simple,” said Kevin Canetti, Technical Director at Wharncliffe.

“We evaluated a number of options, but nothing offered the ease of use and time-to-market of Genero. Having seen the final results emerge so quickly and with two wins under our belt already, I can see we made the right decision.”

Their application, Realitex, has led the market in textiles, fabrics, carpet distribution, manufacturing and retail since it’s inception over 20 years ago. The solution provides sales order, stock, warehousing, invoicing, analysis, production, processing and much more. It is tightly integrated with leading products such as Sage financials and Cognos BI tools.

Wharncliffe provides a range of other solutions for the general market but has been involved in textiles since the early 80’s when it first developed a basic stock control system to handle the complexities of roll and cut stock processing for an Australian carpet company. This quickly evolved into a UK software package which, over many years has been continuously enhanced by Wharncliffe’s in-house development team. It is now using Genero to not only enhance the look & feel of Realitex, but also to provide new facilities and functionality that come as part of Genero.

“We’re delighted with the support from Four Js throughout the development,” said Kevin. “Some of our routines were built over many years with significant amounts of code but migrated to Genero without a problem.”
