“We wanted one true source of data so that everything was speaking without the need for human intervention.”
Ben Dalton, Group Retail Manager, Hoburne Leisure Group

The business challenge

The Hoburne Leisure Group were looking for an integrated purchasing solution that would give them visibility of live data across multiple sites, specifically what products were being bought, being sold, and at what price. They were faced with discrepancies between data, resulting in conversations being based on anecdotal information. Additionally, their staff were spending too much time on admin which could be spent elsewhere in the company.

Integration to the EPoS and central access to data was essential

Needed a solution that could help them manage their expanding supplier directory, track prices and volumes purchased

Needed a solution that would allow them to keep up to date with allergen data in order to comply with legislation
