Bale Group selects Prodware's fully integrated waste management & recycling software solution

Based in Devon, UK, Bale Group is a leading national waste management company providing turnkey solutions for many different industries, specialising in hazardous and non-hazardous waste streams. With technological innovation key to its growth strategy, Bale decided to replace numerous bespoke systems, spreadsheets and accounting software and look for a completely integrated ERP software solution to run its business. After a rigorous selection process, Bale selected enwis, part of the Prodware Adjust Waste and Recycling solution suite.

Hazel Bale, Commercial Director, explains, "We were spending a lot of time checking and re-checking data between our various systems and producing too much paperwork." She continues, "We realised that by having one integrated system, which required us to only enter transaction data once, there would be less time wasted on duplicated work and more time using key business reports, to keep our fast growing business running smoothly."

After a rigorous search of the market, Bale shortlisted two possible suppliers who were given a number of opportunities to present their solutions, ensuring a systematic and detailed selection process. Hazel Bale comments, "We probed and pushed both suppliers using key people from across the Group because we had to ensure the product did what they said it would. Right from the start, Prodware, and their Microsoft Dynamics based product enwis), stood out from the other supplier because both the product capabilities and the consultants' in-depth industry knowledge were excellent."

In addition, Bale Group has purchased Zetadocs, an automated system for managing the production, delivery and archiving of documents. The company has also selected Jet Reports, an integrated reporting solution, giving users a simple way to create high-impact reports. Hazel Bale concludes, "We can see that the Prodware adjust solution will make us a more flexible, robust and accurate company as well as giving us the ability to quickly assess our business using key performance indicators. We are keen to add value to our service and have already spoken to a number of our key customers who are delighted with our plans moving forward."

Mark Breeden, Sales and Marketing Director at Prodware comments, "We are delighted to welcome Bale Group to our fast-growing list of clients in the waste management and recycling industry. The comprehensive evaluation and selection process that was taken to win this order categorically proves that we are the number one supplier for business software in this industry."
