A Rutland-based firm is set to secure its position as the UK’s biggest artificial grass supplier following a £60,000 investment in IT software.
Evergreens UK, which operates nationwide from its base in Market Overton is implementing a new fully integrated computer system that will allow it to provide a more streamlined service across its various trading divisions.
The new K8 system from Kerridge Commercial Systems will also allow Evergreens UK to accommodate the growth in sales it is predicting for 2015.
The firm saw more than a 20 per cent rise in sales during 2014 compared to the previous year’s figures.
Sales and marketing director at Evergreens UK Andy Driver said: “We’re currently seeing unprecedented demand for our artificial grass across all of our divisions, so we have made this major investment in order to accommodate the growth of the business.
“This software system is specifically designed to cater for our needs and will allow us to speed up the service we currently offer.
“Among the many advantages the new system provides is its warehouse management and delivery planning software, which will allow us to plan our nationwide deliveries more efficiently.
“Also, our customers will be able to place their own orders via the website, retrieve their invoices, make an enquiry or review their account at any time of the day, allowing our customers to do business with us when it suits them.”
Evergreens UK owns the popular LazyLawn brand of artificial grass.
