New sole supplier agreement for ACIS

The UK’s largest independent cosmetic repair specialist Automotive Repair Systems (ARS) has appointed ACIS Ltd to be sole supplier of its paint refinish products to serve its mobile repairers effectively.  The contract was awarded based on the service quality, flexibility and choice offered by ACIS members, supported by the company’s Ascribe bar-code driven inventory management and ordering system, which reduces costs and delivers operational efficiencies.
Ascribe enables ARS to have total control of the complete product range supplied by ACIS by providing a fully automated inventory management system.  From one source, the mobile repair group can manage minimum and maximum stock levels on paint and consumables, which are automatically replenished when they reach a specific trigger point, meaning it is never out of stock and can maintain the optimum value of products held on the shelf.  Ascribe also allows ARS to see trends of product movement by technician and usage of products by individual operatives.  This data is helpful in maximising cost savings and helps the company focus on driving its business profitability.
Phil Howlett, operations director of ARS, says, “As we continue to expand our operation with new vans out on the road to service our customers successfully, we’re confident the supply arrangement with ACIS will add considerable value to our organisation.”
Ryan O’Neill, business development manager of ACIS Ltd, comments, “It’s very pleasing that our Ascribe platform played a large part in ARS’ decision to appoint ACIS.  It demonstrates that repairers value the role modern technology can deliver to help them develop their businesses, make savings and efficiencies and maximise their margin.”
