Eureka Solutions helps surfwear retailer to ride the wave of growth


This article is brought to you by Retail Technology Review: Eureka Solutions helps surfwear retailer to ride the wave of growth.

A UK clothing retailer, started nearly 30 years ago by two enthusiastic surfer brothers, has turned to award-winning cloud business solutions provider Eureka Solutions and NetSuite to help take the business to a whole new level.

Saltrock Surfwear was founded in Cornwall in 1988 by South Africans Angus and Ross Thompson who were travelling the world to surf. Now based in Devon, the company has been transformed into a significant clothing enterprise focused around a casual beach lifestyle with scores of branded stores, mostly in the south of England. Its products sell in hundreds of outlets in the UK, Ireland and Europe. Saltrock also has a substantial online business delivering to international customers outside Europe and employs around 400 people.

The fast-growing retailer asked Eureka Solutions to provide a cloud-based NetSuite Financials system to replace its current accounting software. The project also involves implementing Eureka Solutions' own NetSuite integration module, Data Exchange, to seamlessly integrate their retail and ecommerce systems with NetSuite.

Stephen Harvey, CFO of Saltrock, said: "Essentially, we had outgrown our accounting system and were looking to implement a modern, scalable solution which could automate our processes and provide advanced financial reporting.

"Data Exchange from Eureka Solutions will automate the integration with our other business systems. This will save time and ensure accuracy, and means we will have the information and KPIs we need at the press of a button."

Gillian Livingstone, Managing Director of Eureka Solutions said: "Saltrock has developed into a major retail presence in the UK and it is gratifying that forward-looking companies are continuing to turn to Eureka Solutions to underpin sustainable growth.

"Increasingly, we deal with companies which operate world-wide, and are dynamic and ambitious. As a NetSuite partner, Eureka Solutions can create the capabilities required to grow complex businesses from the start-up stage to international success."

Eureka Solutions is a major provider of NetSuite, the world's number 1 cloud ERP, which delivers the proven, comprehensive, financial management capabilities required to grow a changing, complex business.

The Saltrock contract is the latest in a series of important wins for Eureka Solutions which, although based in Scotland, has the greater proportion of its customer base in the wider UK.

Eureka Solutions currently has over 1,900 live contracts, employs 50 people at its new East Kilbride HQ and are predicting double digit growth over the next fiscal year.
