The Celtic Manor Resort have chosen In2grate Business Solutions to provide them with a comprehensive procurement and inventory management solution in time for the 2010 Ryder Cup. Celtic Manor wanted a tailored ERP solution to manage inventory across their resort, and with their extensive portfolio, In2grate Business Solutions were able to provide them with the ideal software solution using Microsoft Dynamics NAV.
In preparation for the 2010 Ryder Cup, £16m has been invested into the resort by the Celtic Manor Owner, Sir Terry Matthews, to allow for a Twenty Ten course and clubhouse to be added to the 1400 acre resort. These are set alongside two other championship courses, a 330 bedroom five-star resort hotel, a separate manor house country retreat, luxurious spas and health clubs, and five restaurants.
Part of this investment is to improve their business systems and In2grate Business Solutions, along with their sister company, OBS Logistics, are delighted to be providing a system that will facilitate control of the procurement of both stocked items and special order items across the many restaurants, bars and departments within the resort. Both companies are part of the Anisa Group and they are bringing together the experience of Warehouse Management and Enterprise Resource Planning systems to deliver a fully inclusive business solution for Celtic Manor.
In2grate Business Solutions has provided an enhanced Microsoft Dynamics NAV ERP system that shows on a single screen the outstanding orders, stocks and usage trends that allows Celtic Manor to maximise stock availability whilst reducing inventory levels. The benefit of being able to immediately see that one department has stock that another department needs helps the purchasing department immensely. Standardising on an item numbering system has also reduced the opportunity for error in the ordering process. By maintaining an easily accessible history of purchases also allows the departments to see where items were purchased in the past. This is especially useful for some of the slower moving items of stock.
The Microsoft Dynamics NAV warehousing module allows Celtic Manor to maximise the available space and control the rotation of stocks taking into account shelf-life and best-before-dates.
Andrew Trotter, Purchasing Manager for Celtic Manor explained, “In2grate Business Solutions was able to provide us with a solution with the pedigree of Microsoft Dynamics NAV, which they configured to fully meet our needs and provided it on an innovative commercial basis. We were also impressed with the level of knowledge that OBS Logistics demonstrated, as inventory planning and management was key to the success of the project”.
Dave Renshaw, CEO of both OBS Logistics and In2grate Business Solutions commented, “We are delighted to be working with Celtic Manor; we are also pleased to know that our solution will be used to support one of the World’s most prestigious resorts and many major events, which will include the 2010 Ryder Cup. Microsoft Dynamics NAV is one of the most configurable ERP systems in the market today and Celtic Manor is one of a number of successes we have enjoyed over the past three months.”
