Richard Hill, Finance Director of Spar UK Ltd. Spar UK Ltd is the central office of the Spar convenience, which includes around 2,500 stores.

Spar UK started working with Acuity in 1998 and since that time have developed a number of systems to accommodate all the activities and operations that Spar UK undertake. For example, Spar UK have bonded warehousing, central billing, consolidation depots, supply chain and importing. One of the major features is integrating management with third party systems and distribution.

Spar UK's turnover has increased by three to four times, however the number of staff in Spar UK's IT and Finance department has stayed the same, which is one of the core benefits of working with Acuity.

Acuity Solutions have had a big impact on SparUK's operations and systems. Spar UK's team have enjoyed working with Acuity, simply because they try really hard to understand our business before they do anything. They like to understand the complexities and make a lot of great suggestions and they listen.

On this basis, Richard Hill is more than happy to recommend Acuity Solutions going forward. Read More..
