Simplifying stock management with SAP Business One
“We now have clear visibility on our stock system – we stock quite a high number of items to meet the needs of our customers. Additionally, key financial and productivity information is available in real-time without the need for excess spreadsheets and manual co-ordination”.

Before the company deployed SAP Business One in 2014, its existing software was also coming to the end of its life and was no longer supported. Abco Kovex were faced with using a solution that was no longer capable of completing key tasks and one that could interrupt daily processes if it failed. Additionally, the system provided no integration into the company’s warehouse – resulting in no visibility or trust into existing stock levels.
How we helped
Following a consultation with key stakeholders Milner Browne developed a wholesale and distribution solution that simplify processes at Abco Kovex. The implementation of SAP Business One provided the company with clear visibility into real-time stock levels. Spreadsheets are no longer required with line managers able to get instant insight into financial and productivity performance levels. Timely information also provides staff with up-to-date market prices and insight that allows decision makers to maximise buying power.
Alongside SAP Business One, Abco Kovex also deployed Enterpryze for its field-based sales representatives and transport teams. Enterpryze provides instant access to centralised data on customer records and the ability to process new opportunities and sales quotes remotely and also check stock levels. Its implantation has reduced the number of calls from field-based staff back to offices and lowered associated monetary and time costs.
