Furniture World News


STORIS Management Systems, a leading supplier of Software Solutions & Services for Big Ticket retailers, announced that they have welcomed three progressive retail businesses to their exclusive list. The Mattress Company, Mesa TV and Appliance, and FrontRoom Furnishings, LCC, have each joined forces with STORIS. Each of the three clients have chosen to utilize Vision R8, STORIS' latest windows based software offering. "As a Bedding Industry Retailer with three stores and a fourth addition expected in June, we needed a software system that could handle a multitude of applications, we found just that in STORIS. The STORIS software does everything that we need it to do," stated Molly Barcus, President of The Mattress Company. The Mattress Company, a locally owned and operated family business since 1992, is based in Fremont, Ohio with additional locations in Sandusky and Norwalk, Ohio. The Mattress Company takes pride in featuring three of the largest bedding showrooms in Northern Ohio. The Mattress Company will take advantage of several companion applications in addition to STORIS' standard product applications. The additional applications include EIS, Customer Service, and Label Matrix Interface. Mesa TV and Appliance, located in Mesa, Arizona, features affordable, name-brand appliance and electronics, bedding, and furniture pieces. With two stores to watch over, plus an additional warehouse, Owner Louis Moses feels that his business will benefit most from "improved inventory control, serial number, and warranty management." "With multiple stores carrying a large selection of appliances, bedding, and furniture, we found that STORIS could successfully handle each of these sectors within one complete system." Additional applications such as Label Matrix Interface and EIS will help Mesa to achieve the intended results. The new furniture venture of Ken Paul, former President and Co-Owner of Sofa Express, is FrontRoom Furnishings, headquartered in Pickerington, Ohio. Mr. Paul and his leadership team chose the STORIS system after an extensive review of many furniture software companies. "Our team just felt that STORIS offered the best of both worlds," said Paul. "STORIS seems to offer all of the key components we are looking for at a very reasonable cost, also enabling us to grow in the future." In addition to the following companion applications: EIS, RF Bar Coding, and Label Matrix, Mr. Paul feels that his business will greatly benefit from Vision R8's GUI Interface, and Customer Service application. STORIS Management Systems, an IBM Business partner, provides software solutions and services to Big Ticket retailers. Small and large retailers worldwide rely on STORIS to integrate operations, streamline processes and outperform the competition
