Save the Trees

My name is Lara, I have recently joined the accounts team at A R Richards as an Accounts assistant. I work with the Sales and Purchase Ledger departments and am helping them to move over to a paperless environment. 

We have recently purchased new software to accommodate this on both Sales and Purchase ledger.

We use PaperLess Europe on the purchase ledger side, this means I can easily move email and portal invoices to the new paperless system where it remembers prior suppliers or if a new supplier, I can create the details on Sage to link and process the invoice. This in turn leaves a trail of who the invoice had been sent to for authorisation, it is a quicker and more efficient process. 

Laura who is our Purchase Ledger Administrator and not always the most accepting of the tech world absolutely loves the new system, everything is stored online, easily accessible for the times when colleagues request historic invoices, each invoice has full traceability of each staff member that has dealt with it, delivery notes can be connected to the corresponding invoice at any time, notes can be saved plus many more options she is currently learning. The system has cut the process time in half and saved filing time and general paper by 100%. 

We use Isys Weighsoft on the sales ledger side. This means I have a system that allows me to check tickets raised by the Transport and Weighbridges for customers, once checked I process them for invoicing. Once invoiced I can then email the invoices out in a bulk section to the customers. 

Karen who is our Accounts Manager says that the Weighsoft system we use for invoicing has been a godsend, it has cut the time we take to invoice in half. We no longer need to print tickets/invoices and have now eliminated the need for scanning and endless amounts of filing.

I am also currently updating customer accounts to encourage customers to provide email addresses eliminate printing invoices and using postal services.

Moving to a paperless office not only helps the environment it also reduces stationary costs. This contributes to our 97% recycle rate.

Merchant Improvements

Merchants Improvements

EPOS System

We have recently had a major overall and changed our Sales software over to an up-to-date EPOS system. Giving us the ability to improve Sales, Ordering, Quotations, Stocks and Purchase History whilst overall improving the customers experience whether that be a straightforward sale or a slightly more complicated one. The Touch screen means we are always facing the customer and improving communication whilst speeding up the transactions.

Improvements in the Purchasing side of the EPOS system has now given us more ability to keep track of supplier’s rates during this unprecedented volatile market to make sure we are getting the best deals for our customers.

With the ability for future additions such has handheld tablets and barcode system there are ways to improve processes even further.

Yard Developments

It has been a right team effort, but we are starting to see the results of all the hard work to improve the yard not only for stock location but overall accessibility and movements. As we have been growing as a division, we have increased stock lines and levels exponentially and were squeezing stock into every space available. But over the last couple of months, we have had sleeper trackers laid around the site to improve the roadways for customer and delivery vehicles. As well as having the complete back yard revamped by one of our own digger teams stoning up and rolling it all in readiness for us to fill with stock.
