Abcon is an abrasives manufacturer who is part of PSB Industrial Products Ltd Group. They are owned and managed locally and are members of the Irish export association. The company is the only Abrasive Belts and Discs Manufacturer and is also the only Large Bore Hose Manufacturer in Ireland.
Since 2005 the company has grown from just 13 employees to 138 currently and their goal is to employ over 150 people by the end of 2019 in order to service a wider Global Market.
Their customer-focused approach across all divisions of the company combined with a progressive and responsible attitude to business has been the catalyst behind their drive to becoming a global supplier.
Abcon needed a digital ordering solution for sales reps that would easily integrate with the companies ERP system. Their existing ordering process was very manual-based, outdated and was becoming unmanageable due to the increasing volume of orders. Not being able to place orders directly into the ERP system resulted in much time spent on the phone relaying the orders back to administrators who would then manually re-key the orders into the ERP system.
Abcon could clearly see the benefits of an integrated sales rep ordering solution and how it could streamline their ordering process, increase efficiency, reduce errors and save time by giving reps the tool to place orders digitally while out with customers.
After unsuccessfully searching the market for a solution, Abcon spoke to their ERP provider Intact Software who recommended the Aphix Software SalesRep app. The app tightly integrates with Intact iQ in real-time and Aphix had the knowledge and experience within the B2B eCommerce market to deliver a tailored solution.
