A Tamworth-based specialist developer and supplier of intelligent software to the warehouse, logistics and distribution industries has launched new innovative software and secured prestigious new contracts with support from the Birmingham office of Midlands’ accountants and business advisory firm Smith Cooper.
Established in 1984 at their Tamworth based office, Traderman has an expanding portfolio of clients including Marks & Spencer, Carpetright and DHL, and recently implemented tmWare for Wednesbury based furniture home delivery company Furdeco.
Following specialist research and development tax relief support and business guidance from Smith Cooper, Traderman has launched new modules to complement its existing software suite (tmWare) which includes a facility for drivers to send a text to the tmWare system to report a successful or failed delivery. This enables the logistics operations to provide live tracking updates to customers about the status of their delivery, without having to invest in expensive in-cab hardware.
tmWare is a web-based system hosted remotely from servers in large data centres, and provides full end-to-end tracking from receipt of goods into a warehouse, through order processing, picking and planning, to delivery and signature capture.
By continuing to work closely with Smith Cooper to facilitate its expansion strategy, the business plans to secure further new contracts and identify growth opportunities with a wider international client base over the coming 12 months.
Shaun Coughlin, managing director at Traderman said: “We provide systems and solutions that enable businesses to report back with critical information, which in turn allows them to better plan their logistical operations, improving efficiency and cost effectiveness.
“The launch of the new modules will enable the business to move forward with its growth plans, based on attracting new business and providing existing customers with better value-added support.
“It’s a very exciting time for the business. The on-going support we receive from Smith Cooper continues to prove invaluable and really assisted us to move forward with our growth aspirations and identify new opportunities in what continues to be a challenging business environment.”
Ed Saunders, tax director at Smith Cooper in Birmingham, said: “Traderman is a truly innovative business. The launch of this add-on software will enable it to look at new market opportunities and expand its existing client base, and I am pleased that we could help them maximise the opportunities available to them.
“The logistics industry is a lucrative market for companies that can provide a streamlined, reliable service and Traderman is a great example of a local business that is thriving. We look forward to continuing to work with the management team on their future growth strategy and expect 2013 to be another exciting year for the business.”
