Following a management buyout of MOS Computers Ltd in May of
2010 the company
has gone from strength to strength, keeping its highly experienced team and continuing
to develop new, innovative software solutions that are constantly evolving to their
customers' needs. Mike Harris and Anthony Bond have worked for the company for
a combined total of 25 years, and when the opportunity came up to lead the company
there was no hesitation. "We have an excellent team of committed developers
and support staff with highly successful products that we author ourselves. As we
develop all software in-house we can get things done quickly and efficiently, always
establishing a dialogue with our customers so that we fully meet their requirements.
Our very positive feedback is a real indicator of our professionalism and knowledge,
and we ensure that we're at the cutting edge of research and development so
that our products incorporate the latest technologies."
The majority of MACE customers are within the wholesale, merchant and distribution
markets. Anthony says: "For example, our clear understanding of industry standards
means that our software solution features product discounting structures such as
multiples, aggregates, special offers, net pricing and so on. We've worked in
this sector for a very long time and make sure that every new component benefits
our customers, helping them deliver the very best service to their clients. We believe
that consultation with our customers is essential in creating products that respond
to the specific areas the industry requires."
Chris Homer of Moss Electrical Ltd is just one of their satisfied customers, citing
the speed of data-entry, its high quality and financial reporting capabilities as
things that have increased both efficiency and profit margins. Another MACE customer,
Nicky Hopwood of Central Heating and Plumbing Supplies Ltd, says that they can now
focus on 'Gross Profit' before invoicing, and that since installation we
have seen a definite increase in profit margin as a result.
The MACE software solution incorporates accounts, stock control and order processing
amongst other things. "We provide links to third-party systems via XML and
EDI, and offer a fully integrated e-commerce web store that displays up to the minute
stock levels and prices," says Mike. "Integration into suppliers'
catalogues, e-mail, fax and document archiving enhances ease of use and streamlines
everyday activities, and we have tools available that interpret data at the highest
level so that our customers can drill down into more and more detail, maximising
their cost-efficiency and exploring their clients' activities in depth."
"We believe that we're the only company that combines this highly personalised approach
with cutting-edge software development that is specifically tailored to the wholesale,
merchant and distribution markets, and we're delighted to be leading MACE Systems
forward as it continues to provide an excellent service and value for money. We
can provide the tools that really enable a business to reach its full potential,
and we're looking forward to introducing even more exciting new products in the
