"Since switching to the Equinox System we have found it to be very helpful and user friendly. We are a trade counter supplying the building industry with everything from nuts and bolts to power tools and everything in between, we have approximately 20,000 stock lines on our system.
The system has helped us to progress into bar coding items and streamline the ordering of stock. We can also serve customers much quicker than before. From an accounts purpose, it is very simple to use and speeded up the role tremendously.
Lastly, the service and help we receive from the GBS team at the office is first class. I would highly recommend the Equinox package to anyone and we look forward to working with them for years to come."

"We changed over to the Equinox system provided by Geddes after using a Sage Accounts package for 8 years.
We had demonstrations on several other systems before deciding to run with Equinox as we felt it worked and fitted in better with our needs. From the outset, Richard and his team have provided us with outstanding support, from the installation of the hardware, to the transferring of all our data over from Sage to the new system and the training we were given by Richard on site.
The process was quick, simple and efficient, with us encountering no problems. The new system is much easier to use and has made us much more efficient in the day to day running of our Business.
We would like to thank Richard and his team for their support, and we look forward to a continuing working relationship."

"We began using the Equinox system from day one to cover our Sales, Purchasing and Stock Control requirements. We spent four years at our original premises before moving to our current unit in 2010, which has allowed us to expand our range of control, Distribution and Hazardous area products.
We like and enjoy the flexibility the Equinox system gives us and each upgrade has opened many new valuable features that benefit our day to day operation. We have recently extended our trade counter to include a new LED lighting centre and we have also employed a specialist to develop our website using the Open Cart system which will of course automatically tie in with our Equinox software."

David Priestly says of 7 Core’s success with us and growth as a company:
"We have gone from strength to strength as a company, opening new avenues of business and building up a large customer profile. This had been made a lot easier by using a stable and consistent system that we have been able to tailor per user and per customer. With limited IT knowledge and experience on site all users have found the system easy to pick up and user friendly, freeing up time to concentrate on product knowledge and customer service.
The speed of order processing and stock transparency allows for fast trade counter service and accurate stock information. Without which the setting up and running of our business would have been a lot more stressful."

Stewart Fox from Fox Electrical Supplies Ltd says...
"As complete novices to the ‘back office’ side of websites, the admin side & uploading of products from the Equinox system is really easy to use and navigate around. Whilst the initial inputting of product detail can be a little time consuming, once we are past that stage we are positive that the regular automatic uploading and updating from the Equinox system will be of great benefit. Previously, the lack of this function has been the main reason we haven’t really done the ‘web’ before.
We are looking forward to getting the initial stage of product detail entry completed and the site into action."

To stay at the forefront of technology Upex Electrical Distributors (Yorkshire) have created the ‘Upex App’ for their growing list of customers who use ‘smartphones’. Dan Mooney says:
“We needed a quick way to create quotations saving us time on inputting the lines and also reduce the risk of any typing errors. GBS has developed Equinox enabling the importing of data which is created in the quotation basket on the App. The requested quotation from the App is imported into the customer account which enables us to turn around the customer’s enquiry very quickly."

"Back in June 2005 Harbro Electrical first used the Equinox system from Geddes to operate the business; thank goodness we did as we were running out of ink. Over the last six and a half years it has been instrumental in the progress and development of our business. I am pleased to declare that during this time, Richard and his team have offered fantastic support coupled with advice at the drop of a hat - nothing is a problem. As with most systems it has developed over this time and is now linked to their own website with 90% of the maintenance automatically happening from Equinox.
Today it is a pleasure to use as it makes decision making, customer management and accuracy of information so easy. Thanks to Richard and his team for their support and long may it continue."
