QC Supplies
Industry: Consumables Supplier

Established in 1993 QC Supplies are a UK based specialist print consumables supplier to the business market. They are an accredited, value-added reseller for all major manufacturers, Brother, Canon, Dell, Epson, HP, Lexmark, Konica Minolta, Kyocera and Samsung to name a few. Part of the Quarry Court Group that supplies across multiple Channels in the UK and European market places, supplying in excess of 18,000 stock lines next day, from our purpose built head office and distribution centre.

QC Supplies were bought by the WestCoast Group in January 2014 at which point they started to move away from the Chorus application suite to the WestCoast Group systems.

Although I was not directly involved in the original implementation of the Chorus application suite (1999) I have/had a long-term and good working relationship with the IT Manager and team. I was their primary point of contact for a large number of projects over the years.

Key Projects:

  • Integration between Chorus and Talent SupplyNet. This involved the development of parsers and wrappers (in RPG) of XML messages for documents such as orders and invoices. Dealings with various XML message standards; BASDA, cXML and opXML.
  • Modifications to the integration layer between the Chorus Telesales Module and the EFT product, which allows automatic payment collection via credit and debit cards.
  • Introduction of multi-lingual product description storage on DB2 to i (UTF-8) specifically to cater for European character sets, such as Polish, for integration with their trade websites.
