“We can certainly expect lots of challenges in 2015 and beyond,” said Dr Casey Loo, the president of the Internaional Alliance of Furnishing Publications, a network comprising the world’s leading furniture industry magazines. He summed up: “To stay competitive, it is vital to stay informed, innovate, and evolve over time – just remember that change is the only constant.”
He was right. Syscom has been working with many UK furniture manufacturers and distributors over the past few years, improving their internal processes and business software systems in order to generate growth, increase efficiency and keep up to speed with customer expectations which are very high, constantly demanding and forever changing. The Microsoft Gold ERP Partner uses a well established and well proven Microsoft Dynamics AX ERP software to achieve this together with their well-established industry knowledge and experience.
“We are now proud to be an Associate Member of the British Furniture Manufacturers Association,” said John Moses, Managing Director of Syscom PLC. “The Association is run by members for members. It demonstrates our commitment to one of the specialist sectors that we serve.” He continued: “We regularly support the UK furniture trade shows and magazines. Joining the Association of British Furniture Manufacturers demonstrates our commitment to support the industry as we pull out of the recession.”
The furniture industry contributes £9.4billion to the country’s GDP, which equates to 1.8% of manufacturing output and employs 115,000 people within 8,116 companies.
