Dover Trussed Roof Company sees savings with Wolf Systems’ WMS

Despite having to postpone its changeover to using Wolf Systems’ WMS software package, because its Kent premises were cut off by the big freeze back in January, Wolf’s longest established customer has reported major improvements in efficiency after working with the system for the last six months.

The Dover Trussed Roof Company was Wolf Systems’ first customer in the late ‘80’s; the company supplied trussed timber roofs to clients across the south-east of England. The manufacturer is one of the “early adopters” of the Wolf Management System (WMS) and has received full support from Wolf in implementing the changes.

Chris Shelton, General Manager of Dover Trussed Roof, comments: “Being right out in the depths of Kent near the coast, we were effectively cut off by the snow and ice in January so we put off the changeover to Wolf’s WMS management system until March. The company’s technical people came down and spent a week with us and the changeover went smoothly.

“We had been working with an old DOS-based bespoke management system for a long time and although it still functioned, we wanted to update things. While all the design issues have remained unchanged, we no longer have to double-input the information for estimating and quotations; plus all of the print-outs, reports and documentation appear far smarter. Basically, WMS has helped us speed all our estimating processes at a time when we are seeing the housing market really start to pick up while schools, and especially care homes, are providing a lot of work for us.”

Dover Trussed Roof’s experiences are echoed by the other Wolf Systems’ manufacturers who have switched to WMS.
