Bellwood Rewinds Limited are based in Hartlepool and operate from their two factory units. Recently they have obtained another unit which will take their floor space to 15,000 sq ft. Bellwood Rewinds repair and sell a wide variety of new and used motors and generators, and specialise in selling new and reconditioned motors and generators. They can provide 24 hour working on all services offered.
Bellwood Rewinds have operated their paper-based system and used Sage for their accounts for many years, but with the business growing continuously, they have decided to invest in a system that would help manage the business even better. As they knew about EMIR through the AEMT membership, as well as through some other EMIR users, they made a decision to give it a go!
We installed a 3-user system in January 2013 and in February, just a few days after they started to use the live system, Charles Bellwood, the Managing Director, decided to purchase another license.
Managing Director, Charles Bellwood, says: “It certainly took me a while to make the decision to purchase the EMIR software as I was wary about changing our system to completely computerised. Once the system was loaded up with the information we changed overnight and haven’t looked back. I can’t believe how much time it is saving us, I would say we have already seen a 50% time saving with our administration, our shop floor workers use the EMIR and add their own materials straight to the job rather than the office having to do it. I must admit I was most wary about the Sage Line 50 interface for the exporting of sales and purchase invoices, however once set up correctly the exports are carried out seamlessly. The system is also helping us to manage our stock a lot easier as well. All in all I am absolutely delighted with the EMIR system and would have no fear in recommending it to any other business ”
