SafetyGrip Prefers IQ Enterprise for its Optimal Stock Management Functionality.
SafetyGrip retails in all segments of the tyre industry providing a vast range of tyres, from virtually all brands for Passenger, Light Truck, Truck, Agricultural, Industrial, Small Port Manutention and Earthmover tyres. Their service further expands to retreading and salvaging of casings as well as supplying of rims, accessories and consumables.
An IQ Retail client since 2010, SafetyGrip required a solution that could improve productivity, save time as well as improve various inventory and business processes, while still being effective and accurate in processing and reporting.

“Investing in the IQ Enterprise solution was definitely a worthwhile investment – we are able to retrieve live information from the system, which allows us to accurately track inventory, improve transaction processing which offers drill down functionality. IQ Retail's customised reporting functionality gives you full control over your business'. Jackie added; 'IQ Retail is very flexible in their offering and has assisted the growth and management of our business with the added willingness to develop their solution to better cater for our specific business needs'.
