CORE Supply Chain Management

In a frequently changing business landscape, many businesses face challenges in purchasing and stock optimisation. Managing and maintaining adequate stock supply to meet your customer needs can often be difficult. Inaccurate and incomplete information can result in lost revenue and aged stock.

Why CORE Supply Chain Management?

  • Enhanced Inventory Control – Users are empowered to make educated buying decisions by having minimum and maximum stock levels at product code. By driving these levels using actual sales data and supplier information, buyers and shop floor staff can purchase based on forecasts or automate the buying process based on stock levels. Cycle counting, partial stock takes, or individual product stock takes ensure that stock on hand figures are constantly monitored and updated.
  • Buying Control – The CORE Procurement system offers a variety of buying options that can be tailored by user, location, or supplier. Everything from central and expense purchasing to maximum order values and purchase approval limits can be controlled, managed, and tailored to your specific business needs.

  • Seamless Financials – CORE has extensive options for managing supplier invoices. You can greatly reduce the number of paper invoices used in your business through tools for invoice automation and document scanning. In addition, the extensive handling of invoice disputes, missing deliveries, and product overcharges ensures that invoice payment can be held until all invoice issues are resolved.

  • Multichannel Communication – We understand how important it is for your business to engage with customers in a variety of ways. Such a multichannel approach is possible thanks to our single database, which records every transaction, price change, and stock movement, ensuring that you always have the most up-to-date information. This ensures consistent pricing across all platforms, improved product procurement, real-time customer account management, and detailed cost-margin controls.
  • Unified Business Data – We offer fully integrated applications that access a single set of data and provide a single source of truth. This method allows businesses to rely on information at the transactional and reporting levels while avoiding inaccuracies caused by disparate systems.

Anthony Caroll

Peter Curran Electric

COREretail, and in particular the Specials Module, ensures that every non stocked item we purchase is either invoiced to a customer or prepayment has been received. This is vital where specials sales are 25% of our business. Additionally, we can see at a glance the status of any item as it routes through the system.

Jim Kennedy

M.D. O’Shea & Sons

The CORE Automated AP solution has enabled us to increase operational efficiency and lower costs. Staff can be redeployed to value-added tasks elsewhere in the office. In partnership with Convergent and CORE we have, for some of our supplier invoices, a fully automated system whereby invoices are received electronically and processed to the point of payment without any manual/staff intervention.

Maryanne Quigley

CORE Specials has become a function that we find hugely beneficial. It’s clarity has allowed us save time when tracking customers special orders and has made our process for specials so much more efficient and accurate, for both us and our customers.

Pat Ahern

T&A Building Supplies

Since partnering with CORE in 2009 our business has not looked back, CORE has allowed us to redefine our internal processes and has driven us to a new level of efficiency.

John Kennedy

Brett Brothers Limited

We have moved from a situation where all orders were passed from the rep to the office on a phone call, or customers calling directly, to having over 70% of our feed orders being entered through the Sales Order App. It has made us more efficient and accurate in our order taking operation.

Michael O'Driscoll

Bandon Co-Op

We have recently completed stock takes across our branch network using the CORE Stock mobile App with Bluetooth barcode scanners. Feedback from our staff was very positive and I would be happy to recommend this to others.


Our goals were to improve customer service, be efficient and generate cost savings – CORE Tech has delivered on all fronts.

Mark O’Donovan

I would never have had the capacity for the extra duties I undertook after some key staff retired had it not been for the CORE Data Analytics Tool, and the time savings this has afforded me.
