Aid to the Church in Need selects Proteus WMS

Charity organisation Aid to the Church in Need (ACN) has chosen Proteus Software to be their software provider after a long and thorough look at the market place. The selection process involved an initial overview of 30 software companies, with an in depth evaluation of a selected 15.

Steve Rumbles of ACN said, “We took a long, hard look at the software providers in the market. Proteus Software was the only company who were able to answer our questions in depth, showed us that they have a true knowledge of their software and services, and had the ability to demonstrate it.

They were also willing to go the extra mile to provide ACN with the solution that is most suited to our unique business processes.”

Aid to the Church in Need is a global, pastoral organisation that works in countries wherever there is a real need for aid. The charity was started in 1934 by Dutchman, Father Werenfried. After the Second World War he was deeply moved by the plight of the homeless and dispossessed exiles, so he single-handedly set out to care for their spiritual and physical needs.

From that moment, the charity steadily grew to become the worldwide organisation that it is today. Running a number of charitable projects at any one given time, ACN’s current priorities include the Middle East, China, Sudan, India and Eastern Europe.

Steve continues, “We have found our experience with Proteus to be excellent on all levels; the company collateral both pre-sales and post sales, the caring attitude of the staff, in particular Leonie and Sarah; coupled with the extensive knowledge of the staff, and the broad functionality of the software. We are looking forward to a long and fruitful relationship with them.”

David Gray, Chief Executive of Proteus Software said, “We are delighted to have won the ACN contract, providing them with a software system that can cope with the company’s unique inventory control and order control processes. We take pleasure in working closely with a company that works for such a charitable and worthy cause.”
