Furniture World News on

STORIS Management Systems, a leading supplier of Business Solutions and Services for Big Ticket retailers, is proud to announce that Old Cannery Furniture Warehouse, one of the largest home furnishing retailers in the state of Washington, has converted their business operations to STORIS’ Vision R8 retail management solution in less than 90 days. “Old Cannery decided that they wanted to expedite the conversion process. Working together we were able to create a project plan and deliver the professional services to meet their goal date” comments, Mark Van Winkle Director of Vision R8. “Having the opportunity to work with the Old Cannery staff of professionals, it is no surprise that this company has a long history of success in achieving their goals” furthers Van Winkle. Family owned and operated for 25 years and located in Sumner, Washington, The Old Cannery Furniture Warehouse is a sizeable, well respected home furnishings store in the northwest. Beyond the doors you will see the vision of Tony, Mabeth, & Sherry Grout and discover 10 acres of lucrative space displaying some of the finest furniture in the country. Visiting Old Cannery Furniture is a visual experience for the whole family. The store is set up to look like an “old cannery”, and features old fashioned toy trains streaming through the store and showcases a seasonal petting zoo for the kids. Additionally, Old Cannery has an oak manufacturer on campus and a homemade fudge factory. As a vast, booming enterprise originally running all store operations completely manual, it was important for Old Cannery Furniture Warehouse to find the right technology system that in turn had a great support staff to assist with the implementation process. Cris Ness, IT/Systems Manager at Old Cannery Furniture Warehouse, played an important role in selecting the retail technology system for the store. “Our business process struggles prompted us to search for the right needs-based software to be incorporated into our day to day methods, and we found that with STORIS. Additionally, the price point was affordable. The ease of the Vision R8 GUI screens and the reliability and efficiency of the system were also important key features.” Additionally, Old Cannery Furniture Warehouse was impressed by the professionalism of STORIS’ staff. Another deciding factor stemmed from the reputable companies using STORIS. American Furniture and Mathis Brothers Furniture are both Top 100 STORIS clients who referred Old Cannery Furniture Warehouse to STORIS Management Systems. Cris states, “The amount of years and the successful implementations that STORIS has been involved within the furniture retail business has made our decision to go with STORIS even easier. STORIS Management Systems is on top of their game.’ Cris continues, “I feel that Vision R8 is beneficial because it does everything in real-time, doing the work that would normally take five people to do.” STORIS Management Systems, an IBM & Microsoft partner, provides technology solutions and services to Big Ticket retailers. Small and large retailers worldwide rely on STORIS to deliver the technology and support services to outperform their competition.
