Account Number Change

Your account number will revert back to your previous Informix number from 1st April 2010. A reminder of your account number (or a new number if you didn't have one previously) has been sent to you by post. If you have not received your letter, please contact Customer Sevices on 0845 705 6568.














Synergi Users

You should have received an email from Daphne Libby explaining how to upgrade your Synergi package. This will automatically switch over to your new account number. If you have not received your email, please contact the IT helpdesk on (01228) 611888.

Accounts Information

From Tuesday 6th April, please be aware that all new invoices and credit notes issued from John Ritchie t/a STL Distribution will be reverting to the Informix format.

Statements will be produced in the Informix format from the end of March, and will show only invoices and credit notes due to John Ritchie Ltd t/a STL Distribution. Unfortunately there has been a delay with producing the pre-printed statement paper, so you may receive some on blank paper temporarily.

Backorders

The majority of backorders will have been migrated from SAP to the Informix system by 'Go Live'. If you have any questions regarding your backorders during this period, please contact Customer Services on 0845 705 6568.

We are confident that this change-over will go smoothly. Our goal is to be up and running by the 6th April with minimal disruption to your business. As we make progress throughout the transition we will keep you updated via our blog.
