Oldest business in Coventry embarks on NetSuite journey to futureproof business for generations to come

Leicestershire headquartered, BrightBridge Solutions, a leading ERP provider specialising in cloud-based technology is moving John Astley & Sons Limited (Astleys) to the cloud with NetSuite.

Trusted by more than 40,000 organisations worldwide NetSuite is the leading integrated cloud business software suite, including business accounting, ERP, CRM and eCommerce software.

Established in 1730 and reputed to be the oldest continually trading company in Coventry, Astleys are a family-owned and managed business with over 4,000 customers from all types of operations. The business operates from a modern purpose-built warehouse and offices, and offers a range of over 15,000 products across a huge spectrum of categories from cleaning and hygiene materials, to safety footwear to PPE clothing, hand and power tools and so much more.

Astleys have been running their own proprietary software system for nearly 40 years. Whilst highly customised and developed, the solution has now reached end of life.

Astleys as a business understands clearly the business benefits that NetSuite and cloud can bring to their organisation. We look forward to working with Astleys and building a long-term partnership with them.”
