Case Study: Ashley Ann, Software Development

Application Testing & Security


Ashley Ann is a leading manufacturer of kitchens, bedrooms and bathrooms, with its factory in Caithness and multiple retail showrooms spread across Scotland.

Navertech designed, and continually develop and support, two bespoke software systems for Ashley Ann, both of which have been designed from the ground up and integrated with the departmental needs of the manufacturing and retail processes.

Disclaimer:  Due to confidentiality, we cannot show any visuals of the systems, but a description of each is provided below.

Production Management System

Designed and developed since 2005, this fully bespoke web-based production management system provides a work-flow system for the entire production process, from a production job coming in, right through to delivery and dispatch.

In addition, a collection of sophisticated reports allow department and company management teams to report on key business information such as job planning and finance.

The production software that Navertech has produced for us is so integral to our business that our factory would not fully function as efficiently without it, and it’s great to have this level of expertise available locally to us, both in terms of ongoing support and coming up with solutions to sometimes complex business reporting requirements.
Gavin Bremner, Operations Director, Ashley Ann

Automation forms a big part of the software system and its ability to automate time consuming and repetitive tasks increases efficiency throughout the production process.

Retail Showroom Management System

Design and developed since 2009, Navertech developed a fully bespoke retail showroom management system, which is a cross between a Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system and business management system.

Designed to specification and to integrate with the existing design and sales processes, the CRM element of the software provides a work-flow to manage all enquiry and customer related data from point of enquiry, through to production and delivery, and post-delivery.

In addition to the CRM element, a number of business specific reports and analysis tools were designed to assist finance, sales and marketing decisions, and a real-time view of performance across all Ashley Ann showrooms/locations.

Our showroom software allows our sales process to be fully digital, whilst feeding relevant data back to our head office and factory facility in Caithness.
Stephen Bremner, Managing Director, Ashley Ann
