Contract awarded: 2007.
Location: iForce Saltley, now Stafford
Products deployed: iForce Revive, iForce Marketzone.
Scope: iForce Revive software is deployed to help operational staff to process, grade and segregate items returned from Screwfix branches and from online customers.
During the course of a longstanding relationship the level of items recouped using the Revive software has increased by 62%. Refurbishment is also carried out on selected power tools and non–recoverable power tools are stripped into their individual componentry either to maximise scrap value or to minimise environmental impact. iForce Marketzone is also used by Screwfix to allow product that cannot be sold at full margin to be auctioned to individual customers and to other businesses to maximise the price on disposal.
