Radley manufactures and imports high quality handbags, luggage and other leather goods for the UK wholesale and retail markets and has established strong brand awareness as a young, innovative and design-led manufacturer.
Six years ago it acquired an automated sales and purchase order processing and accounting solution from Lakeview, which has successfully formed the backbone of its business ever since.
“We required an integrated solution which would manage our batch system for processing transactions efficiently and give us essential visibility of the entire sales order to invoicing process,” says Paddison. “In short, the Lakeview solution is beginning to deliver what we wanted, in supporting the business in an un-dramatic yet effective way.
“And the value of this should not be underestimated, as we operate in a highly competitive market, supplying major retail outlets whose tough requirements demand that we maintain strong control of a supply chain in which many products are sourced from as far afield as India and the Far East.
