Bailey Morris Ltd , the leading propshaft manufacturer and component distributor in the UK, has deployed Opera 3 to increase efficiencies across its international operations. As part of the upgrade, Bailey Morris has introduced Opera 3’s Payroll and Bill of Materials (BOM) capabilities, making full use of the additional features to reap cost and efficiency savings, as well as seeing improved accuracy of costings. As a growing company offering an ever-expanding range of services, their 25-strong team needed a solution which enhanced reporting options across the business, presenting timely, accurate information, to the right people, in an accessible format.
Established in 1977, Bailey Morris has facilities in both Cambridgeshire and West London (Feltham), functioning in four currencies, serving the UK and many export markets in Europe. As a distribution and manufacturing hybrid, the business’ operations are diverse, but the flexible nature of Opera 3 ensures all business activities are fully supported by the software.
“Multi-currency operations such as ours aren’t without their challenges,” comments Kevin Head, Managing Director, Bailey Morris. “ 2015’s volatile currency situation, as well as increased competition emerging primarily from online businesses, resulted in some changes for us but, with Opera 3 on board, we know we have the necessary control and visibility across the business to address any issues quickly and efficiently. Opera 3 copes very well with our complex business needs and the historical sales and stock reporting that it provides is a big advantage. ”
“We’re a long-standing user of the Opera platform and have always found the software to be extremely stable, user-friendly and flexible. We’ve always had excellent support from Pegasus’ business Partner, Applied Business Computers who provide a comprehensive service in the most innovative and patient way. It’s an excellent solution for SMEs such as Bailey Morris as not only is it extremely intuitive and portable, but it has the ability to grow alongside the business. For our company, Opera 3 is an invaluable and integral part of our day-to-day business and it’s hard to envisage operating without it.”
