Upon evaluating other modifiable ERP system offerings in the market, AM Leonard, An Ohio based family-owned and operated horticulture and tool supplier, has chosen to implement Sage ERP X3 as its financial reporting system. AM Leonard needed an ERP system that would be flexible enough to be customized to support their multichannel sales approach. With its full-service enterprise management software system, Sage ERP X3 allows AM Leonard to remain cost-effective and efficient while continuing their focus to customer service.
Founded in 1885, AM Leonard serves the needs of the horticulture industry. Since then, AM Leonard has continued to grow, now employing nearly 100 employees. The company serves the horticulture industry around the nation through its catalog and Internet sales divisions.
"After using the 'industry standard' multichannel retail/distribution software for years, we knew it was time for a change," said Barry Gertner, information systems director for AM Leonard. "We reached the point where we knew that our current solution was not going to continue to work for us, so we started looking for alternatives that would provide solid, core functionality, while allowing for easy modification."
According to the press release, the total time spend in implementing the ERP was under four months which included time required to make seven major customization to the software. With Sage ERP X3 implementation, AM Leonard has automated many of the company's shipping processes which enabled them to save time resources. For example, with automation of freight quotes functionality within Sage ERP X3, order entry persons can now receive multiple freight quotes within seconds against 30 minutes per order consumed earlier.
"AM Leonard and Sage share a strong commitment to servicing their customers. Sage understands the needs that businesses have for flexible, efficient, and cost-saving business management tools," said Sage Executive Vice President Joe Langner. "We are proud that Sage ERP X3 has helped power AM Leonard's growth and success, and we hope to see their success endure for the next century."
