At BASDA we celebrate our members and the work they do. As a result we’ve decided to run a new regular Member of the Month feature. Every month we’ll be taking a look at one business, what they specialise in and how they feel they’ve benefited from being involved with BASDA. This month we’re taking a look at Anagram Systems.


International company Anagram Systems has undertaken the weighty task of improving stock control and accounting for growing companies on a small budget. Anagram strives to provide exceptional value for money by including sophisticated functionality that is usually only found in systems designed for large enterprises.

Anagram Systems is a company at the forefront of technology which for over 30 years has wowed customers with exciting innovations. They have progressively grown a committed and diverse team who use their expertise to imagine new and exciting ways of keeping Encore- Anagram’s flagship business management system-   fresh and relevant.

Encore is an integrated stock control and accounting software designed for retail, manufacturing, wholesale and distribution companies in a wide variety of industries. The software is designed to cover all of a client’s needs by being easy to use, improving their work flow and integrating all the different aspects of a business. Encore is used by more than 2,000 small and medium sized businesses in the UK and US. Encore is a modular system that can be customised to meet a customer’s exact requirements.

David Carter from once wrote: “Anagram are the country’s foremost experts on small business stock control systems. If you go with them, you get an excellent package at a remarkably cheap price from a bunch of stock control experts who offer friendly telephone support if you get into trouble.”

Since joining BASDA early on in its formation Anagram Systems have realised a number of benefits including networking opportunities, representation of their interests through lobbying as well as provision of excellent information and regular industry news. Nick Hardy, Marketing Manager of Anagram Systems said: “Without a doubt we have benefitted from being part of BASDA as an organisation”. He added, “BASDA has recently been supporting our interests through the excellent quality of news that they provide. That news is key to developing our software”.

Anagram Systems has attended many BASDA led meetings including interest group meetings as well as the Annual Summit. Said Nick Hardy, “We’ve been to various meetings over the years which have been unfailingly useful. We’ve had the opportunity to network with our peers and we’ve shared leads with people”. Anagram Systems will continue to look to BASDA to provide them with clarity of information, guidance and advice which will be key to their understanding of the new legislation regarding ‘Making Tax Digital’.

Anagram has recently launched Encore Connect, an application that provides sales personnel with real-time, remote access to their company’s central Encore deployment via smartphones, tablets and laptops. Connect users can access Encore via any browser based device with internet connectivity.

Connect has been designed to transform the productivity of field-based sales staff. It enables them to manage customer information, capture sales orders, create quotations, schedule activities and organise their schedules using Encore, from wherever they are working.
