Gradient Consulting are delighted to work with Lancashire-based Buoyant Upholstery Limited on their ERP System Selection Project.

Buoyant Upholstery was founded in 1909 and moved to its current site in Nelson in 1973. They produce a wide range of sofas and chairs, in different styles and materials, which are sold through wholesalers and large furniture retail chains. Buoyant has strong growth plans, supported by a recent venture capital investment and have invited Gradient to assist them with their ERP system selection project.

Buoyant Upholstery’s current system is 15 years’ old, was designed for a much smaller business, and is no longer being developed. It is based on old technology, contains many bolt-ons and is presenting storage issues. The provision of management information is proving a real challenge to the business, with limited systemised traceability or drill down capabilities. Buoyant is looking to replace their current system with a robust ERP package, to provide a platform for future development and growth.

Full case study to follow shortly.
