Austin Jarrett, the Managing Director of Allett Mowers, leads a passionate team dedicated to lawn care and sports services. Allett Mowers specializes in manufacturing specialized lawn mowing equipment used in top stadiums worldwide. They also produce cylinder mowers for homeowners.
Allett Mowers takes pride in its long history dating back to 1965, with a commitment to supplying spare parts for their products, even those manufactured decades ago. Spare parts account for 10-15% of their sales and play a crucial role in ensuring the longevity of their high-quality machines.
The Challenge: Demanding part ordering needs for maintaining World Cup uptime
Allett Mowers faced several challenges related to spare parts management. As a global business with customers in 46 countries, they encountered linguistic barriers and the need for standardised part numbers to ensure efficient communication and seamless transactions. Moreover, the demand for spare parts was driven by immovable deadlines, particularly for events like the World Cup, where their equipment had to perform flawlessly.
To address these challenges, Allett Mowers needed a solution that could consolidate and streamline their spare parts lookup process, enhancing customer satisfaction and operational efficiency.
Working with Partful
Over two years ago, Allett Mowers embarked on a quest to find the perfect partner for their spare parts needs. Their criteria for selection were distinct and non-negotiable: a long-term partner providing an affordable solution. A company that shares its core values, and offers a modern, customer-centric approach to the spare parts lookup process. After meticulous evaluation, they made the decision to team up with Partful, a decision that would prove pivotal in their journey.
Partful embodies all the qualities Allett were looking for in a partner:
- A fully Interactive 3D parts catalogue with exploded views provides a seamless experience for its dealers and customers.
- A language-agnostic platform which satisfies its global operations and dealer network.
- A fully digitised after-sales process that eliminates existing inefficiencies and lost revenue opportunities.
Beyond being technically proficient and passionate about the work we do, Partful aligns seamlessly with Allett Mowers' values.
What sealed the deal was Partful's ability to present not just a solution, but a forward-thinking, hyper-modern one, attuned to the evolving needs of Allett Mowers and their customers.
Since going live with Partful's spare parts management solution a few months ago, Allett Mowers has witnessed significant improvements.
