City 1st crosses line with CAM’s UniSerV
Slough based City 1st is introducing Cameo and UniSerV from CAM across its four truck depots. The commercial tyre specialist wanted to go paperless and install an intuitive system to help its team of fitters to transition to a mobile system. The company states that it reviewed the options and gained feedback from other users before deciding to adopt CAM’s technologies.
UniSerV will centralise many of the administration functions into the company’s head office, supported by Cameo in the background. The CamGL Nominal Ledger will control financial reporting, moving away from Sage, which the company said had limitations around controlling and valuing stock in a live environment. City 1st will send jobs out to its fitters via tablets who will then transmit a report back to head office once they are completed for invoicing and sending to third parties via CAM’s 3Pi module.
Nick Yiannakis, director at City 1st, says, “After evaluating the marketplace for some time, we realised that CAM was the clear market leader in this field. We wanted a system that would help our fitters embrace change and adopt the technology successfully. The time was right for us to go mobile and CAM has been very helpful in getting everyone on board.”
Mike Allen, managing director of CAM, comments, “When the market changes, driven by new technological developments, quite rightly, customers want to feel reassured that the new systems they are adopting are going to be accepted effectively in-house as well as provide significant benefits in terms of savings and efficiencies. City 1st has followed a very well informed and considered path to help it achieve its business objectives.”
