Merlin & Fosters Schoolwear working together

Merlin & Fosters Schoolwear working together

Merlin Business Software is pleased to announce that Fosters Schoolwear has become their latest customer.

Based in Bishop’s Stortford in Hertfordshire, Fosters Schoolwear is a growing family business distributing uniforms to retail customers as well as schools and colleges.

Ian Foster, Managing Director said

“Merlin has really opened our eyes to what modern software can achieve. We have been ready to move on from our current software for some time, and we were delighted when a mutual contact recommended that we take a look at Merlin, as they had been running a Merlin system of their own for a couple of years very successfully.

Merlin have taken a holistic approach to this project in terms of what their software can do and the benefits it can deliver; but they’ve also introduced trusted partners to take over the development of our e-commerce website, as well as a specialist Lease Finance company to help us spread the costs.”

Ian added

“We feel that with the implementation of this very powerful, user friendly software, we will be able to speed up our processes and thus make our business more efficient, which we believe will improve our customers buying experience. Due to the number of products we supply to our schools it is imperative  that we are able to manage our stock purchasing and holding more efficiently. This will help increase our sales, reduce costs and lead to improved margins.”

Ashley Jones, Sales & Marketing at Merlin Business Software contributed

“It’s always great when a satisfied customer refers you on, and Ian has been a real pleasure to work with.  I was delighted that our significant experience in the Workwear and PPE sector meant that I could demonstrate how Merlin can effortlessly accommodate Ian’s schoolwear industry requirements without any new development work to the standard software”.
