Ockenden Timber

Ockenden TimberOckenden Timber, established in 1988, became one of the first mobile sawmills to be set up in the UK. Located in Chirbury, Shropshire, it is now probably the most experienced supplier of mobile sawmill services in the country. More recently the business has diversified into online trade, selling products through its website and webshop. John Ockenden, Company Director, explains, "We selected Sage for our e-business activities for several reasons including the fact that Sage is a trustworthy company, used to supporting small to medium-sized business such as ours." John goes on to say "I know that Sage is involved for the long term and is not a fly-by-night Internet start-up, having used their Sage Line 50 accounting software in the past."

When asked how he finds the Sage support, John replies, "Sage offer free support, apart from the cost of phone calls, and I expect that they will further develop and expand their products and capabilities. I also appreciate their common sense approach on design and layout, picture file sizes etc. A lot of corporate sites fail to realize that many users are on ordinary domestic phone lines and that fancy sites can be hopelessly slow."

So how does John judge the success of his website? He says, "I am very pleased with the success that we have achieved online. We now have a means of taking orders at any time and therefore I can only anticipate that sales are set to rise. We also have plans to increase our online product range."
