ARS and ACIS sign exclusive supply deal

Automotive Repair Systems (ARS) has appointed ACIS as sole supplier of its paint refinish products.

A key factor in the decision was the company’s Ascribe barcode-driven inventory management and ordering system, which provides a fully automated inventory management system.

Apart from automatic reordering, Ascribe also allows ARS to see trends of product movement by technician and usage of products by individual operatives.

Phil Howlett, operations director of ARS, said: “As we continue to expand our operation with new vans out on the road to service our customers successfully, we’re confident the supply arrangement with ACIS will add considerable value to our organisation.”

Ryan O’Neill, business development manager of ACIS, said: “It’s very pleasing that our Ascribe platform played a large part in ARS’ decision to appoint ACIS. It demonstrates that repairers value the role modern technology can deliver to help them develop their businesses, make savings and efficiencies and maximise their margin.”
