SEALED PERFORMANCE BATTERIES

Easy-to-use solutions benefit us by enhancing overall productivity and giving superior visibility.

Based in Yatala, Queensland, 20 minutes from Brisbane, Australia, Sealed Performance Batteries, or SPB, is one of the country’s biggest portable energy storage products distributors. SPB has footprints in pacific regions as well. They offer an extensive range of products, so managing inventory, top-notch customer service, and accurate inventory forecasting becomes difficult.
As SPB’s product range and customers keep expanding, one of the critical issues that the company’s CEO Greg Roberts faced was prompt delivery of the product and ensuring complete customer satisfaction. It was getting tedious to get precise forecasting and ensure customer satisfaction simultaneously, and that’s when Greg found out about Avercast. Ever since SPB associated with Avercast, they’ve felt the difference.
Greg already had the experience of working with software but the jaw-dropping feature of Avercast, “its affordability,” made Greg choose it over any other software. Greg and his team loved the visibility Avercast software offers. When a vendor requests a forecast of purchases for the next 12 months, the information is right on the screen – and the team can give it to vendors in minutes

Here is what made SPB’s CEO Greg Roberts choose Avercast over any other software:

1. Avercast Offers Affordable and Accurate Solutions 
SPB’s product range and volume continued to expand, so they had to move out of spreadsheets to properly analyze and forecast. Spreadsheets are a basic, cumbersome form of forecasting that do not consider trends and seasonality while predicting inventory or demand. For companies like SPB, which have around 1-3 months of lead time, a time-phased forecast is crucial as planners outline purchase plans. Greg already had the experience of working with software but the jaw-dropping feature of Avercast, “its affordability,” made Greg choose it over any other software.

2. Easy to Use Along with Timely Implementation
Greg cited how they could use the Avercast software to forecast before even paying for it. With assistance from SPB’s IT team, the Avercast team ensured implementation on time and 20% under budget. All the nightly and month-end updates are automatically fetched by the systems, making the task easy. Greg lauded Avercast for being an easy-to-use tool, with no special training to get up and running.
3. The numerous benefits of Avercast Software
Sealed Performance Batteries witnessed the benefits instantaneously. The software increased efficiency and assisted with strategies. Here are a few of the noteworthy benefits:
  • Enhanced Efficiency: Avercast software assisted SPB in preparing the vendor’s order in an hour, which used to take an entire day earlier. Productivity improved, enhancing overall efficiency.
