T I Midwood & Co Limited (TIMCO) is one of the UK’s largest and fastest-growing wholesalers in the construction and industrial sectors. Established in 1972, the company imports and supplies more than 8,000 quality products from around the world throughout the UK, Ireland and Europe. From screws and fixings to power tool accessories, hand tools, adhesives, chemicals, personal and site protection, security, ironmongery, building hardware, workwear and beyond.
TIMCO continues to invest in the business, fuelling growth and preparing for the next phase of development. The company has significantly extended its product range as well as developing its warehousing facilities which now totals 140,000-square-foot in Wardle, Cheshire.
With a fast-moving business, TIMCO relies on technology to deliver their service as efficiently as possible and ensure the highest levels of customer service. John deWeerd, the Operations Director, is responsible for company ERP, warehouse management and product data systems. John works with Michael Lewis (ERP Analyst) to ensure that these line-of-business systems are always under review and are continuously developed to contribute to this technology-first strategy.
After a number of years using Sage X3 to implement best practices across the business, it became apparent that there were a number of inefficiencies that remained within finance, in particular accounts payable. Processing large volumes of paper-based invoices were taking up a lot of time and resources each month, and this prompted TIMCO to search for a solution that could streamline the flow of AP invoices, from initial receipt to approval and payment.
After evaluating several options, including V1 which they had used in the past, TIMCO chose X3CloudDocs.
I would certainly recommend X3CloudDocs to other businesses using Sage X3. The solution is native to X3 and fits seamlessly within the overall environment. The ease of use and integration have made the solution valuable for our document management and accounts payable automation needs.
