Challenges: future business needs, fast implementation, supplier credibility

Bathstore is the UK's largest specialist bathroom retailer with over 160 stores across the UK employing 500+ staff. The company works with some of the top designers and manufacturers to produce beautiful, affordable bathrooms - a number of ranges are exclusive to Bathstore. The company maintains high stock levels to provide customers with flexible and reliable delivery services.

The time had come when Bathstore needed a computer system for its future – an essential requirement to support its business plans. From the outset, the implementation had to be quick so as to avoid upheaval and disruption to trading operations, especially during busy trading periods. After thorough product evaluations, Bathstore placed an order with Kerridge Commercial Systems - the company had the necessary credentials and the right product for the job. The system went live in January 2003..
