GripIt® appoints OrderWise 21 June 2016

UK fixing manufacturer GripIt® Fixings has announced it will use OrderWise stock control and order processing software to streamline its order processes and gain an insight into its stock levels.

"As well as managing its large amount of orders and invoices, OrderWise’s stock control software will ensure GripIt® can continue to deliver a great service and will also provide the means for future growth.

Jordan Daykin, CEO and founder of GripIt, said: “We’ve seen tremendous growth across the business over the last 18 months and as we begin our venture into international markets, it’s become even more crucial that we keep a strict eye on our supply and demand. The OrderWise platform will help us continue business as usual and ensure nothing slips through the net.”

In seven years GripIt® Fixings has grown from a simple idea of a 13 year old boy to a manufacturing facility with the capability to produce GripIts in the millions. In 2008 Jordan Daykin was helping his grandfather secure a blind to a window of a converted garage. The gap between the plasterboard and the steel lintel was too narrow and the drill bits kept snapping. The fixings available on the market at the time were not robust enough to secure the blind, so Jordan – along with his grandfather Stan – invented a new design of universal fixing that could be used with all types of plasterboard installation – the GripIt.

Jon Roberts, marketing manager at OrderWise, added: “We’re delighted to be working with such a fast growing and focused company. Jordan’s invention is so simple but so effective and we can see why it’s been such a hit. With our systems being constantly scrutinised and updated, GripIt is in safe hands.”
