United Hardware is an Irish owned hardware and homeware group founded in 2009. They supply and operate the well known Homevalue Hardware and ARRO retail brands on behalf of their members across Ireland.
The group comprises of 154 stores nationwide which caters to a diverse customer base of both trade and DIY. With an average turnover of over €400 million per year, they directly employ 43 staff with a further 1,300 staff employed indirectly through their network of branded retail sites.
Operating from a purpose built warehouse located on the outskirts of Dublin, their overall mission is to deliver enhanced purchasing power, marketing, logistics and business advisory support to the independent hardware, homeware and agricultural retailers.
Prior to engaging with Aphix Software, United Hardware had an existing eCommerce solution in place, but they couldn’t manage to fully integrate the solution with their ‘SAP Business One’ ERP system.
It became clear that their current eCommerce solution would not be scalable enough to support United’s vision of providing group members with a single login to a branded portal, the now existing ‘United Toolbox’. They planned to use the portal as a one-stop shop for group members to access the forthcoming online suite United Hardware were offering.
It drove United Hardware to approach their SAP reseller, TeamSoft, to figure out how they could maximise their investment in SAP Business One and future-proof any further eCommerce investment.
Teamsoft referred United Hardware to Aphix Software who they knew could deliver an eCommerce solution that would truly integrate with SAP Business One and who could continue to deliver on United’s long-term digital strategy and goals
