Fast forward to 2020, ScS has experienced monumental growth thanks to the focus on the quality of their products, and putting their customers first. ScS has evolved from a general home furnishing store into one of the UK’s leading sofa and carpet specialists, generating £268.1m in gross sales in 2020.

Identifying the gaps within your ScS processing capabilities

ScS wanted to streamline their procure-to-pay process by reducing paper-based communications across their offices. By digitalising their processes, they could automatically export and import data onto a centralised platform, whilst ensuring data integrity.

Martin Dale, Operations Director, ScS said:

“We needed to work with a company that was flexible, understood NAV and our EDI requirements, and could liaise with our suppliers. Cegedim e-business understood our requirements and built a solution to meet our needs.”

In the last year alone, ScS processed over 1,000,000 documents through Netix.
