LightStyles Selects Savance Enterprise ERP Software to Streamline Future Business Operations

November 12, 2020

LightStyles, a destination lighting distributor and showroom located in Cornelius, North Carolina, has selected Savance Enterprise’s ERP Software to forge ahead with future plans for massive growth. Skip Hulett, Owner of LightStyles says “Selecting an ERP is a massive decision, but since making it, I have never second-guessed myself with that with the decision to move forward with Savance Enterprise ERP Software.”

Skip — who has been the Owner of LightStyles for the past six years — says one of the most important factors driving his decision was Savance’s knowledge of the industry and commitment to doing business the way LightStyles does business. “With so many of the other ERP companies out there, we felt as if they just wanted to sell us a standard, off-the-shelf system and those systems did not exactly work with our business processes. Savance listened to our feedback and our business needs and customized the areas of the software we needed,” explains Skip.

Industry Experience that Sets Savance Apart
Whether you’re building a new home, renovating your kitchen or bathroom, updating your outdoor spaces, or just looking for new lamps for your living room, LightStyles is your local source for chandeliers, lamps, ceiling fans, and outdoor lighting. They have a passion for quality, excellence, trust, and building lasting relationships — something they believe they also found in Savance.

“Savance’s vast experience in the electrical distribution industry parlayed well into what we need as a lighting distributor. On top of that, their pre-implementation support and follow-through have been outstanding,” says Skip. “There is no doubt they are knowledgeable at what they do. For me personally, being able to continue to interact with the same person who sold us the solution, is also meaningful and beneficial. We know what it takes to build strong relationships and I believe that Savance values their customers the same way, all the way through the process from beginning to end.”

Streamlined Operations and Insight
With its new Savance Enterprise ERP System, LightStyles will be able to streamline processes, gain better control of warehouse operations, improve accuracy, and capitalize on fast order entry to meet the demands of an aggressive growth trajectory. In addition, LightStyles will enhance its content by utilizing XO Logic to integrate with the new ERP platform. This powerful combination gives the lighting distributor the ability to showcase rich product data and industry-specific information to feed sales orders and quotes, eCommerce, and professional proposals.

“I am the first person to admit I can occasionally second guess myself after making company investments that can have this kind of impact,” says Skip. “I can’t express how different I feel about this experience. It’s exciting, invigorating and we can’t wait for the next phase of growth with Savance Enterprise.”
