Wilkinson Healthcare launches ecommerce site following deployment of Microsoft Dynamics NAV

New web shop, developed by The NAV People, provides incontinence and stoma customers with a direct and discreet service tailored to their needs

NEWBURY, BERKSHIRE, UNITED KINGDOM, December 1, 2016 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Medical appliance wholesaler, Wilkinson Healthcare, has selected Microsoft Dynamics NAV from The NAV People to support all central business functions and provide a flexible and scalable platform giving the company a progression path as its operations grow. Dynamics NAV has helped to contain headcount costs by eliminating the need for manual order entry of approximately 650 orders daily and radically improved the level of visibility across the company, delivering real-time data on number of orders, stock levels and invoicing. Additionally, the increased functionality provided by Microsoft Dynamics NAV has enabled Wilkinson Healthcare to develop a new channel to market. The recently launched web shop offers people affected by incontinence or who have a stoma a direct and discreet facility to service their needs.

Wilkinson Healthcare supplies stoma, continence and wound care products to UK Dispensing Alliance Contractors and the 9,500 pharmacies within the UK pharmacy network. The company holds approximately 4,500 lines of stock at any one time and receives between 500 and 800 orders daily. The prescription line items are sent to Wilkinson Healthcare via an interface developed by The NAV People, which integrates the pharmacy wholesalers system with Dynamics NAV. As soon as the warehouse team at Wilkinson Healthcare pick and pack the items, a notification is sent via the system confirming the order fulfilment.

Accurate visibility of stock is vital; Dynamics NAV is used to keep track of stock levels and interfaces with the wholesaler’s system to provide real-time notifications every 15 minutes. By integrating the systems, Wilkinson Healthcare has significantly capped headcount costs by eliminating the need for manual order entry of hundreds of orders each day. Also by integrating the web shop into Dynamics NAV the company has created a single repository of information that has streamlined operations.

Russ Melrose, Interim MD and IT Director at Wilkinson Healthcare comments: ‘The NAV People took the time to understand our requirements and delivered the solution not only within budget but also in the tightest of timescales. We are a small company with a high order throughput; the solution underpins our business and enables us to be incredibly efficient. The Dynamics NAV solution has put us on the path to optimisation, enabling us to further improve our business processes and providing the functionality in which to do this ourselves.’

Ian Humphries, Managing & Product Director at The NAV People commented; ‘The key objective for Wilkinson Healthcare was a solution that had the flexibility to scale with their growth plans. By deploying Microsoft Dynamics with the nHancement workflow module created by The NAV People, the company has the functionality and flexibility to create dashboards and make changes, without the services of a developer. This level of autonomy has put Wilkinson Healthcare in the driving seat of their IT business environment.’
