Before using Intact
Running at total capacity in their current premises, Dave Gavin, Managing Director of KCR Builders Providers had two choices; stay as they were or look to grow their business. Dave felt they were ready to grow but knew their current Agility system had significant shortfalls inhibiting their expansion. Agility did not offer adequate multi-branch capabilities, support was an on-going issue and when upgrading to new releases of the software, problems arose every time.
After talking with all major software vendors in Ireland, it came down to Kerridge and Intact. Intact iQ was chosen for its credit card integration, multi-branch capabilities and ‘big company functionality’ at an acceptable price point. Supporting an Irish company with 50 employees based in Ireland, who were already working with some big names in the industry, were important deciding factors in his decision also.
- KCR Builders Providers required multi-branch functionality to grow their business which Agility didn’t adequately cater for. It also didn’t offer the level of credit card integration they required. Other shortcomings included on-going support issues & problems when upgrading to new releases.
“Intact iQ is streets ahead of what we had and more progressive than anything else on the market. We now have the same functionality available to us that bigger companies have been using for years. It’s up to us to utilise it”
After using Intact
The Sales Order Process at Strahan Timber has been revolutionised. They have moved from handwritten dockets to a fully integrated POS system linked to their stock management system which means they have reliable and accurate information of what is available and can process an order in less than a minute whereas before it was taking anything up to 2 hours. Their search facility is greatly improved and their accountants have all the reports and information they need.
- Visibility of information
- Flexibility to customize individual end user screens

“I love that I can now see my true margins, true prices & have more product information stored per product and customer”
Intact iQ has given KCR Builders Providers much greater control of their business & crucially better stock management. They’ve gained more insight into their true pricing & margins and overall love its ease of use & potential for the future.
