Finding SwanFRS

We caught up with Shelia Butler, COO of The Arrangement, to find out about the company’s experience of choosing and using our furniture retail system, SwanFRS.

Why did you choose SwanFRS?

‘We chose FRS after researching many other ERP providers and determined that FRS had the best capabilities for where we are today and the growth we plan to have in the future.’

How has your experience of SwanFRS been?

‘We went live with the old version of FRS, but quickly transitioned to v12 [the latest software release]. We are pleased with the new look and feel of the software. It’s modern, has better search capabilities and the new dashboard is key to daily monitoring and customer service. We utilize the full functionality of the software, including the following:

  • We handle all customer service issues within the software and no longer use an outside project management software for this area.
  • We try to keep all business/customer related communication in FRS and out of email by using the dairy/notes functionality.
  • We have photos of each and every stock item in our system and rely heavily on the photo/picture functionality of the system.
  • For the sales floor, we use the UP system, iPads and finger scanners to assist as sales tools and improving customer service.

Working with SwanFRS in the Future

What does this mean for the future of The Arrangement?
