South Coast Building Supplies Moves Ahead with Intact

Intact have the pleasure to announce that South Coast Building Supplies have placed their order for a fully cloud hosted Intact iQ system, adding another H&B member to Intact’s list of clients. 

South Coast Building Supplies are one of the H&B Group success stories of recent years. Starting trading in August 2008 they now boast 4 branches supplying building materials across Dorset and Hampshire. Recent investments across their business have seen them add a new state-of-the-art ecommerce system and a planned branch move of their current Bournemouth location. 

Looking to their future and the next phases in their growth plans, South Coast Building Supplies recognised the need for a more suitable and targeted software solution to help them. After years of fitting their business around software, they were keen to move on to a system which could fit around their business, allowing them to process and trade how they would like. It was with this in mind that they engaged with Intact to discuss how the Intact iQ system could provide that help. 

Intact iQ is designed from concept for trade counter merchants and offers all of the functions and more that South Coast require, coupled with the flexibility for this to be seamlessly changed to suit their individual business and particular processes. South Coast were also impressed with the ability of Intact iQ to offer a dedicated delivery scheduling service and electronic proof of delivery through its native APP service called Intact Access. 


As well as placing their order for the Intact iQ system, South Coast have opted to host their system with Intact through its dedicated hosting centre meaning that they can retire the old in-house server setup they were previously running, giving them more security and availability across their branch network. 

Commenting on the order with Intact, Tim Payne, Managing Director of South Coast Building Supplies: “We have known the guys at Intact for years and have always kept abreast of what they were doing and what the system had to offer.” 

“The Intact iQ system is exactly what we need as a business to support the next stages in our planned growth, we can see how it will enable us to become more productive with the current staffing levels through the additional control and visibility it will provide.” 

“Intact have a proven track record in supplying many of our fellow H&B members and we look forward to working with them for many years to come and we are all excited to be getting the Intact iQ system in place.”

NOTE: South Coast Building Supplies originally bought their Intact system from BlueRock Systems, which was acquired by Intact in 2022.

I've been part of the Intact family for 16 rewarding years. After completing my Business Studies degree, I knew Marketing was a field I wanted to pursue. Prior to joining Intact, I primarily worked in the financial sector, focusing on marketing for credit unions. When I started at Intact, I handled all the marketing tasks by myself. Over time, as our team expanded, so did my role. Now, I specialise in crafting compelling content across various platforms, from blogs to video scripts. No two days are the same, and I thrive on the dynamic nature of my role. Whether it's diving into customer case studies or lead campaigns, I'm driven by the positive impact our solutions bring to businesses. In an age where AI plays a significant role, I remain a firm believer in the power of authentic content. When I'm not working, you'll find me enjoying quality time with my family, sewing, or watercolor paintings.
