Wholesale Company Magnusson & Freij Chooses Jeeves ERP
“As wholesalers we generate a high volume of transactions, which demands a high level of speed and security from an ERP system. Right now we are doing many tasks manually, so Jeeves ERP will save us a lot of time while offering us new ways to receive complete and detailed customer information including purchasing statistics, order status and inventory levels,” said Magnusson & Freij CEO Krister Pettersson.
Magnusson & Freij’s product range includes over 7,000 consumable items in categories such as office supplies, toilet paper and paper towels, cleaning and protection paper, and dining and catering. The company has been in a partnership for several years with Nyblomgruppen, a group of 14 established family firms from all over Sweden.
“At Nyblomgruppen we have a joint product catalog, and one of Jeeves ERP's many advantages is that now we can transfer product and pricing information from the system directly to our company. The Jeeves ERP system allows us to rationalize and automate numerous tasks, which makes us more efficient and paves the way for further growth,” said Pettersson.
The initial stage of the project is a feasibility study, which will then move to an implementation phase. Everything should be complete by the end of the year. The transaction comprises accounting, purchasing and e-commerce.
Magnusson & Freij was founded in Gothenburg in 1958, and today it has about SEK 160 million in turnover. Its customers include the City of Gothenburg, SKF, Stena Line, Volvo, Göteborgs Kex and Astra.
