Access, the mid-market consulting, software and solutions provider announces today that high street retailer The Entertainer has chosen to implement Access Dimensions as its head office finance solution.

Access best fitted our needs, mainly because they took the time to make sure their product was the right match for us and because of their software integration expertise.

Access, the mid-market consulting, software and solutions provider announces today that high street retailer The Entertainer has chosen to implement Access Dimensions as its head office finance solution. The high street toy shop operator joins a growing band of retailers who are choosing Access to drive efficiencies in their central finance function.

The UK’s largest independent toy retailer went to market in autumn last year looking for a complete business solution that offered everything from daily store sales recording to supplier payments and detailed financial analysis. The Access team demonstrated the full capabilities of Access Dimensions, which included an invoice-matching solution configured to The Entertainer’s specific requirements. Ashley Major, finance director for The Entertainer, said, “Access best fitted our needs, mainly because they took the time to make sure their product was the right match for us and because of their software integration expertise.”

The new business software will give The Entertainer useable financial management information with real-time reporting, matching of all stock purchase invoices, efficient payment of suppliers and automated bank reconciliations.

“Having Access Dimensions will allow us to spend more time monitoring and controlling our costs by eliminating manual processes,” continued Ashley.

“We’re delighted The Entertainer has chosen Access Dimensions as their retail head office solution,” said Alex Reeves, Access’ marketing director. “Our ability to work with retail clients and demonstrate a working solution as part of the sales process helps to inspire confidence, and ensure that any technical challenges can be overcome before project commencement.”

Alex continued, “Access offers retailers a flexible head office finance solution for customers with complex integration requirements. We work with a multitude of different EPOS and ecommerce providers rather than one vendor, allowing us to fully integrate our system to match each retailer’s specific needs.”

The Entertainer has 50 high street stores across the UK and a number of websites including http://www.thetoyshop.com and http://www.thegadgetshop.com.
