One of Worcestershire’s leading IT and business software providers has renewed its long-term contract with a global storage equipment firm.
FinditinWorcestershire member, Minster Micro Computers Ltd is now into its 15th year supporting Warwickshire-based BITO, a specialist supplier of storage, racking and material handling systems.
Providing software and IT infrastructure, last year Kidderminster-based, Minster played a key role in BITO’s move to its new purpose-built offices and warehouse in Nuneaton - implementing the SAP Business One system which has improved BITO’s management of its stock control network.
Nick Marlow, managing director of Minster Micro said: “We are extremely proud to have played a key role in the growth of BITO, one of the most respected market leaders in their sector.
“Since we helped BITO move to a new building and implemented a new, efficient system, they have gone on to record sales of £16 million.
“It is 15 years since we started working together, and to renew what has been a first-class partnership is a big milestone for us.”
As part of the contract renewal, Minster will continue to provide BITO’s full IT infrastructure – including cyber security, telephone and communications networks, hardware and continue to support BITO with their SAP Business One ERP system.
Edward Hutchison, managing director of BITO, added: “Our partnership with Nick and the team at Minster has been a long relationship, founded on trust and expertise.
“Thanks to Minster a major change in the life of our business and the move to new premises went smoothly, while the capability of our IT systems are now second to none.
“We have seen a period of sustained growth across the business and our IT infrastructure has been a big factor in that success.”
Founded in Germany in 1845, BITO now has more than 70,000 customers, providing storage solutions for the likes of Amazon, M&S, Asda, Lidl, BMW and Jaguar Land Rover.
Founded in 1979, Minster has almost 40 years’ experience supporting businesses with their IT infrastructure and software. The company is an accredited SAP Business One Partner and Pegasus software provider. The firm also supplies payroll software, training and a variety of IT support services – including the 3CX VoIP telephony system.
