The merger of multiple stores and chains gave rise to a need for a common business system that offered opportunity for growth. There was also a desire among the many participating stores for centralised functions that could assist them in their daily work.
The investment in a common business system for the Colorama chain is a necessary investment for the future.
EVRY delivers a functional, holistic system that includes the business system Microsoft Dynamics NAV, EVRY's own unique industry application for hardware, building and decorating stores, POS application, ExFlow invoice scanning, through invoicing, e-letters, e-commerce, EDI and Hogia Payroll. A flexible concept, combined with cost-efficiency and adaptation to new future business needs.
"We link the entire store chain in a good and profitable way," says Carsten Bohlen, IT director at Colorama.
"We also help the individual paint stores through centralisation of the desired functions. This gives them more time in the store to serve customers, rather than sitting in front of the computers....
The impact of the collaboration between Colorama and EVRY is summarised by Thomas Pålsson at Colorama:
"The great benefits of the new system are that we can simplify Colorama's business processes and make them more efficient. This means that we can strengthen our position in the current competition - at the same time as we get a flexible IT platform to face the future with."
The solution, which simplifies and increases the efficiency of the business processes in the store chain, is built on Microsoft Dynamics NAV and EVRY's unique industry application for hardware, building and decorating stores.
Colorama is the paint store chain and was formed in early 2007 by a merger of the national voluntary chains Spektrum and Färgtema. With over 175 stores in Sweden and purchasing collaborations in Norway and Finland Colorama is the largest independent paint store chain. The head office is located in Malmö and the total turnover is 2.5 billion SEK.
