ABOUT MAROON PIG
Maroon Pig Ltd is a rapidly expanding fresh, vibrant company supplying large retailers and trade across the UK. The company was started by Andrew Smith and Paul Johnson who between them have over 50 years experience in the retail and trade sector. Maroon Pig is the sole UK & Eire distributor for WOFI lighting of Germany.
For over 60 years now, WOFI has been developing lights to match lifestyle. From modern designs to cosy vintage styles, WOFI specialises in keeping up with the trend – manufacturing a range of sleek and stylish LED ceiling lights, floor lamps, pendant lights, wall lights and table lamps.
EDI was a requirement for Maroon Pig in order to get in with the larger retailers they wanted to do business with. Home Base, and some of the other larger retailers will only do business using EDI so there was no option.
Maroon Pig trusted B2BGateway to complete the implementation after being satisfied with the EDI solution for a number of years with another company, Crimson Bear. “Unleashed does everything we need and the EDI is seamless. When we get an order from Homebase nothing has to be done, the order goes straight into Unleashed.”
Before it closed its doors, Crimson Bear had implemented Unleashed and Xero as a warehousing and ERP solution — which helped the project significantly. They had previously set up EDI with their trading partner, Homebase. It was a quick and easy transition because everything was almost the same. “It’s a combination of Homebase making EDI a requirement and us being a big fan of B2BGateway’s EDI solutions. It saves us from having to re-key data obviously and with that factor, there are zero errors.”
