Matthew Dent, managing director Fertile Fibre, explained, “I was looking for a Postcode Lookup application that could be easily integrated with our Sage system, data8’s service was the only one that fitted the bill perfectly. When customers ring in, staff can input name and address details directly into Sage, it also speeds up the time it takes to enter the details as staff only have to enter house/building number and postcode, which improves customer service”.
Dent said “As a company we are very concerned about the environment, in particular the wasteful use of finite resources such as peat, particularly when suitable alternatives are available. By using data8’s Postcode Lookup we also ensure there are no wasted deliveries of our coir products as all addresses are captured correctly. This helps to reduce our overall carbon footprint”.
Antony Allen, managing director data8, commented “We are pleased that we have been able to help Fertile Fibre to improve the efficiency of their business. Like Fertile Fibre, data8 are also concerned about the environment, all clients using our data cleansing service are able to see the amount of CO2 they would save if they cleansed their data”.
Dent concluded, “Fertile Fibre was developed to look for a method of conserving precious peat yet still obtain outstanding growing results. After much experimentation the ideal solution was found in coir. Gardening enthusiasts account for 60% of the peat bought in the UK, so, by purchasing an alternative product, they could make a real difference”.
