Founded in England in 1978, in a small apartment above an office, Toffeln has grown into a company that distributes its products in 50 countries. Toffeln designs, produces and distributes ergonomic footwear worn in hygienic environments such as hospitals, dentist and veterinary offices, and food service. Toffeln’s sales have grown about 12 to 13 percent each year, according to Sales Manager Bradley Leflaive.
As Toffeln expanded, Bradley says, it outgrew the data management systems it had been using: Sage Accounting, Sage ACT for CRM, and Orderwise, with which they managed their stock and order processing. “It wasn’t a very seamless integration between the three systems,” he says.
Finance Manager Justin Leflaive reports, “We had two key criteria when looking for an ERP. The first was to solve the problem we had with different sets of data stored on various systems, which made our reporting very time-consuming, and caused a lack of efficiency between our sales and operations departments. The second was we wanted a solution that would position us correctly for growth and future requirements over the long-term.”
