Uniform Supply

by msecadm4921

Large security companies need the kind of complex management information systems that simply can’t be supplied by a pen and paper system.

Michelle Drew of staff uniforms provider Peter Drew comments.

With 5,000 staff how do you monitor who’s due for a new pair of trousers? And even if you can tell who wants what and where to send them, can you monitor the budget by cost centre or, harder still, the client budget on a national contract across multiple cost centres? Wouldn’t life be a whole lot simpler if you could? Better yet, what if you didn’t have to do it at all and someone else did it for you? Well they can.

Corporate clothing systems have been around for a long time, and they work just fine to supply the business market they were intended for but until now there hasn’t been a system specifically tailored to the needs of the security industry.
Peter Drew Contracts, the specialist security uniform suppliers, and Datel have developed a computer system specifically for the security industry. All the details of your staff are loaded onto an exclusive website. Pick a guard and the system knows his size, what he wears, where he works, which cost centre and client budget he should be billed to and how much of everything he is allowed to have. The ordering system has been kept as simple as possible, there are no product codes to learn and minimal typing, you simply click next to the picture of the item you want and it’s on order. And if you’ve had problems with overbuying and leaking budgets then a system not only remembers the guard’s sizes but will warn you if he’s already had this year’s uniform allowance must be a money saver. With management reports of spend by cost centre, region or client available instantly on-line there’s also no need to spend hours analysing your expenditure with a spread sheet and a calculator.

What they say

Tim Drew of Peter Drew Contracts said: "We’ve listened to our customers and made our services fit their needs. The most common questions we get asked are: ‘Have you had my order?’, ‘have you got the stock?’ and, ‘when will I get it?’ So we’ve made sure our customers also get email order acknowledgements, stock information and a direct link to our parcel carrier so they can follow the progress of their orders. We think this new system, in addition to our traditional design and manufacturing expertise, will give our customers our best service ever."
