Wetton adopts software solution

Wetton Cleaning Services has selected Templa-CMS, the fully integrated sales, operations and finance solution, to assist in its ambitious growth plans. Over the last 20 years Wettons has shown very strong year-on-year organic growth, with high retention rates.

"Selecting new software to base the future of your business on is not something to take lightly," said Jason Baker, finance director. "Templa-CMS is an enterprise-wide solution which supports our key objective of managing all our contracts efficiently and profitably, by providing all the information we need in a single database. This will reduce administration yet improve our performance - but crucially Templa-CMS has been chosen because it will provide the foundation for our business for many years to come."

Some of the key drivers for changing its current system include: the incumbent supplier could not demonstrate a long term strategy for product development; the constant reliance on MS-Excel for contract control, wage variance analysis and site profit/loss reporting had to be eliminated; the move to an automated payroll process reduces overheads; the unnecessary paper trail through the business had to be replaced by introducing intelligent workflow; and the ability to link both contract and management documents to Templa CMS meant all relevant contract information had instant availability at the touch of a button.

Rick Stoor, managing director of Templa, said: "At Templa, we realise that software change is a big move for any business, so our proven roll-out methodology and data migration tools will ensure Wettons receives all the benefits of our software very quickly. We are delighted that it has chosen Templa as its partner and look forward to our software assisting its business in its plans for the future."
