Grafton Merchanting - New document generator for retail branches


Grafton Merchanting, part of the Grafton Group trades from over 600 branches in the UK, Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland, Belgium and Netherlands. In the Republic of Ireland, Chadwicks & Heiton Buckley are the leading brand supplier to the building and DIY industries & more recently Cork Builders Providers have joined the group.

As part of a major upgrade to their AccuStar Retail system, Grapevine were requested to design and develop a new custom software application to create documents such as Quotations & Receipts, which would replace the existing documents.

Called the AccuStar Document Generator (ADG), the new application generates PDF documents that can be printed directly to the branches where new laser printers are being rolled out to replace the older legacy printers. PDF documents can also be automatically emailed directly to one or more recipients such as the customer or account manager.

The ADG application also provides enhanced support for more advanced document design & graphics which will support future brand and marketing requirements.

Additional documents, such as invoices, orders, statements & receipts will be rolled out on a phased basis.
