We are delighted to announce that The APAC Group have signed a contract for the implementation of Caliq.
APAC are one of the leading importers and distributors of floristry, horticultural, party and wedding products in the UK. Founded in the 1970s, as a small nursery, the company has expanded and is now selling a range of 8,000 product lines sourced from all over the world.
Based in Leicester, APAC have developed a 56,000 sq ft complex with 4,000 pallet locations and are set to more than double that in the near future. As well as supplying garden centres, nurseries and growers, APAC also supply some of the largest retailers in the UK including Tesco, ASDA, Wilkinsons, Hobbycraft, Thorntons and The Range.
APAC saw in Caliq many areas that offered improvement over their current Access Dimensions system, but more importantly saw how it would successfully grow in line with their continued expansion.
Kevin Mackay, director at APAC and the man who will oversee the transition to Caliq, had this to say:
“As soon as we saw Caliq in operation, we knew we needed to move in that direction to maintain our efficiency and service levels to customers well into the future, especially taking into account the diversity of the business and our ambitious future plans. Throughout the tendering process the whole ethos behind Caliq and the integrity of their proposals shone through, making our choice of supplier relatively easy. We are really excited about implementing the new system and look forward to working with Caliq to bring the project to fruition”
