The Challenge
  • Start up business
  • Seasonality and competitive nature of the market, Vivid arts need to ensure the right items are in stock
  • Plan for rapid growth
  • Shipping from the Far East is volatile due to fluctuations in the value of the US Dollar
Our Solution
The Benefits
  • A slick order/accounting operation. That saves a phenomenal amount of time and is enabling Vivid Arts to move forward
  • Ability to monitor and manage its standard costs, SYSPRO generates clear overview reports for these standard costs enabling the management team keep a close eye on the business
  • Supporting the business for future growth


K3 Syspro customer Vivid Arts is a superb example of how a well specified and designed IT system backed by excellent support can help a brand new company develop its fledgling business into one that is projecting a turnover of £2 million in its first year of business.

This effort is due to the enthusiasm of the individuals within the company to succeed in their mission to achieve a £4 to £5 million business within three years of startup. Supporting this enthusiasm is a SYSPRO ERP system that provides the company with confidence to press on with its business goals.

“The easy choice would have been to opt for a basic accounts package, but because we wanted to grow rapidly we decided to implement an ERP system on an SQL platform”
