Space to Trade - Case Study

Space To Trade are the UK and Ireland's premium provider of mall commercialisation for the shopping centre sector. They rent Retail Merchandising Units and other shopping centre space on flexible letting terms of weekly or longer in areas where high levels of customer footfalls exist.

Challenge

Space-to-Trade operate throughout the UK and Ireland. The business is growing rapidly with further expansion planned. Previous systems, although suitable up to a point, were manual and labour intensive. Once growth kicked in, it made it difficult to manage the increased workload. Without a single central point of information, it also posed a business risk. Mobility to enable sales reps on the road to have visibility of data to easily quote and book these properties was absent from these systems.

Paul McCammon, Finance Director, Space To Trade
