Pegasus Software, a leading supplier of accounting, business and payroll software, today announced that specialist gifts company, Boxer Gifts, has deployed its Opera 3 accounting, business and payroll solution with Pegasus XRL Reporting. The UK based designer, manufacturer and distributor of unique, quality gifts, is using Opera 3 to integrate all of its finance, HR, manufacturing, inventory, CRM, sales and distribution processes to facilitate greater visibility, enhance accuracy and drive business growth.
In the turbulent retail market, having visibility of all of its business processes in one place is crucial for Boxer Gifts to operate in the most profitable way possible. With a £3 million turnover and 3000 SKUs stored across multiple warehouses, the company imports a proportion of its stock from China, so the landed costs feature in Opera 3 represents a huge advantage, eliminating the need to manually calculate the true cost of imported stock. Through having a tight grip on costs and one version of the truth, Boxer Gifts has confidence in its margins and can focus on innovating and creating new ideas, knowing that its processes are being managed in an efficient, reliable manner.
The CRM capabilities within Opera 3 enable Boxer Gifts’ relatively small sales team to punch above their weight in managing a 6000 strong database. Because information is fed directly into the system, cross selling and upselling opportunities are maximised. And through Pegasus XRL Reporting, the management team can generate live reports on any aspect of the business in an instant for better decision making.
“Supported by Pegasus’ Partner Raven Computers, Opera 3 really is part of the DNA of our business and supports everything we do, from sales, marketing and distribution, to reporting and payroll,” comments Thomas O’Brien, operations director, Boxer Gifts. “Having up to date information at our fingertips can represent genuine competitive advantage in this market and through a combination of Pegasus XRL reporting and Pegasus Dashboards we can access information on any part of the business easily and clearly. This in turn means we can react to trends, ensure new products are launched quickly and effectively, and maximise profitability. We recently celebrated 30 years in business and supported by Opera 3, we look forward to the next 30 years being even more successful.”
