Wolfchester Australia Migrates from Handshake to Pepperi
"It will revolutionize what we do!"
Trent Harrison, COO, Wolfchester Australia
We are Wolfchester Australia based in Melbourne, Australia. We’re an automotive industrial consumables wholesaler. We have approximately 13,000 items and a few thousand customers in our range. We sell to retail and business to business.
We were previously using Handshake. I’ve been using that for about four years. Through our sales team, so we’ve got, we’ve picked the middle tier so we’ve got the SAP B1 integration.
We’re going to be doing the B2B eCommerce website which about going from Handshake to Pepperi was easy no problem at all. To replicate what we had on handshake was was very simple, even the importing side of it is so fast, even as simple as updating your inventory on a daily basis is so quick. There is obviously a hundred more options available through Pepperi over what Handshake did.
Handshake was very basic and you know you couldn’t change anything from what your out of the box product. It is very very different situation with Pepperi in terms of what you can and can’t change.
The biggest thing that we noticed with Pepperi over Handshake is that the configuration side of it is virtually unlimited, the changes you can make even right down to changing a view based upon your rep – so each rep can look at the app in a different way. It’s amazing! I haven’t found any limitations yet. You know even little things like forcing a sync, so you’re sometimes you’re relying on your reps to do syncs, but you as an Android customer you have the ability to set us a sync schedule.
Also there’s the ability to go and have a Wolfchester-branded app which gives huge advantages for our customers not only our retail customers, but also our business to business customers who can look up all of their sales history, their invoices, their accounts all in one place.
It will revolutionize what we do, yeah it’s certainly not even in the same ballpark as what Handshake was, and another big thing about Pepperi is to bring your own device. We can view our B2B Storefront via iPhone apps or Android apps completely in our own branding, which will be really really nice.
