James Gilchrist, owner of Beechhall Joinery, bought Joinerysoft’s Joinery Management Software (JMS) one year ago and since then has more than tripled his turnover and increased his production capacity. James purchased a five head moulder shortly after JMS because he was winning so much work that it was the next step to improve capacity. He says, “As well as JMS our new five head computerised moulder has played a part, but I would say that JMS alongside the new moulder is definitely the biggest part of it.” James viewed JMS on a number of occasions at woodworking shows, however it wasn’t until he was recommended it by another joiner that he decided to purchase it. He says, “If a joiner who I knew wasn’t computer literate could use JMS successfully for his small production set up then I knew it would help my larger scale production.”

Keen to see the business moving forward, Paul has in the last 12 months invested in Joinerysoft’s Joinery Management Software for quoting and manufacturing as well as a Trend window system which links to it. The catalyst for change came with the introduction of the new office administrator, Kerry, who was brought in to relieve Paul of the quoting for the business. Not having a background in joinery Kerry initially struggled with the vast amount of information that for Paul was automatic. As with many businesses, it soon became apparent that most of the information required for quoting was stored in Paul’s head. Paul decided to get away from their existing system which relied upon pre-existing knowledge and start a new system that Kerry could be involved in setting up. After a demonstration by Joinerysoft he could see that not only would it quote large jobs quickly, the software would also handle the custom joinery that was key to their business. Paul explains, “We do all bespoke work, including windows, doors, stairs and kitchens. No two jobs are ever the same and sometimes every item in the job is different too.

Looking for software to take the company forward, Steve Moore purchased JMS in November 2006. "As soon as I saw it I knew that's what I needed." One of the challenges of running a joinery workshop is that architects and customers change their minds at the last minute. With Joinerysoft access is easy meaning Steve can pull up a job, make changes, and print instantly. More than just a quoting package, production efficiency has also been improved because the joiners don't have to calculate their own cutting lists, resulting in a higher throughput of work. Steve doesn't believe this has deskilled their job, rather improved it, saying, "The joiners on the workbench are able to concentrate on producing high quality fine joinery by removing the routine part of their job."
