Sanderson Consulting for...

— Expert Retail IT and Systems advice.
— Specialist Software & Systems supply
     to the Retail & Distributions sectors.
— Retail IT & Consumables supply.


Over recent years the words “choice” and “service” seem
to have all but disappeared from the retail IT supply sector. Multiple acquisitions by major brands and vendors have led to a real “lack of choice” in the market place, resulting in some very poor levels of service.

At Sanderson Consulting (Retail & Mobile IT), we want
to bring back choice and offer good advice in areas where
we can “make a difference” and our experience can be
“made to count”.

We welcome clients both old and new, and look forward to restoring your faith in solution providers to this sector.

  • Sanderson Consulting provides IT advice and guidance in the following areas:
  • WMS applications

There are many reasons to work with us – the key reasons being our: Experience, Honesty, Integrity and Service.

After 30 years in the retail IT industry I have accumulated
a considerable depth of knowledge on a wide range of software products and system suppliers. I have spent
many years working with clients to achieve their goals
and objectives and have a proven track record in this field (See Testimonials).

“I have known John Sanderson since 2000, mostly whilst in my position as Finance Director at JJB Sports, up to July 2008, when I retired.

During this period John was the Account Manager at Pennine Computer Services Ltd and then at Alphameric Retail Ltd (after that company acquired Pennine). In his position as account manager John dealt with several projects including the introduction of Stock Audit, Store Price Checking, new Payroll & Personnel systems, the introduction of the new Dream Accounting solution, and new Epos and Chip & Pin systems at the stores.

Throughout this time I had a regular and strong relationship with John, who always impressed me with his technical knowledge of the products he was dealing with and his diligence in ensuring the timely and smoothest possible implementation of the new procedures.

In addition, on a personal level I have always found John to have a particularly friendly personality which results in constructive and pleasant meetings. I would have no hesitation in recommending John to any prospective clients for his services and have great confidence that their enquiries will be dealt with in a professional and prompt manner.”

David Greenwood
Company Secretary, Whelco Holdings Ltd.
Former Finance Director JJB Sports Plc
“John has considerable experience within the Retail sector and has provided valuable consultancy and systems recommendations to us throughout our 10 year relationship.

John remains a valuable resource which we call on when we require specific industry expertise.”

Andrew Stellakis
MD Q2Q & IT Director designate — Lyle & Scott Ltd
“We worked with John from 2000 through to 2005 during his time as an account manager at Alphameric. He was our main touch point into the business on a day to day basis and ensured that our service levels were where they should be……96% + !

He was instrumental in bringing our Audit solution into the business, and worked tirelessly managing our Chip & Pin Epos upgrade and roll out across an estate of over 1600 systems.

In addition, John successfully worked with the finance teams on major Financial and Payroll system upgrades, and was equally at home at both board level and operational levels of the business.”

Mark Macaulay
IT Director — JJB Sports Ltd
“I have dealt with John Sanderson for over 12 years and have found his product knowledge first rate. He has supplied TOG24 with Tills, Receipt Printers, Scanners, and Till Drawers for Tog24 over this period.

He has a wealth of experience and knowledge within the Retail Industry, and the resources to obtain information not immediately at hand.

Delivery has almost always been on time, but, just as important, his after sales service is excellent, and he will resolve any problem as quickly as possible.

I have every intention to continue to use John as a Supplier for Tog24.”

Ian Cunningham
Systems Manager — Tog24
“We worked with John when he was Retail Sales Director at Megabyte Ltd. Throughout my time at Cobra Sports, John managed our relationship pre and post the roll out of what was a major system installation covering Pos, Merchandise and Warehouse Management.

He was great to work with, whatever the pressure. And he delivered the results.”

Tim Drake
Former MD Cobra Sports
“I have welcomed the opportunity to deal with Sanderson Consulting for recent provision of Mobile Technology Terminals. I have been impressed with the turnaround of requests for information, with the quotation process and the subsequent managing of the order, the delivery and the installation.

For me having a local contact is a big advantage and I have found that dealing with Sanderson Consulting couldn’t be easier. I would gladly recommend their services.”

David Postle
Retail IT — BPL Shoes Limited
“Beaverbrooks have worked with John for many years and he is a trusted, valued and well liked supplier to the business. Over the years (approx 15!) John has worked with us as both a systems and solutions supplier, as well as an account manager. John has been involved in major projects at Beaverbrooks, including stock audit, payroll and business intelligence. He has also helped with procurement of audit, labelling and epos equipment.

Apart from his skills in support and supply, John also brings a wealth of knowledge and experience, and is always more than willing to provide help and guidance whenever required.”
