Key Services

Morelli Group

Morelli & Co. started in 1957 when Slim Moring moved from repairing cars to selling Valentines paint to accident repairers in North London. His main drive was to improve on the poor service he had received as a repairer and his early motto was “your stock is at the end of your telephone”. From day one he offered daily deliveries a big improvement on the weekly service offered by others at the time.

Today the Morelli Group are the UK’s leading independent automotive supplier with a national annual turnover of £40m. Morelli Group has developed a strategically placed national network able to provide its customers with outstanding service, whatever their needs working with motor manufacturers, accident management companies and other industry experts to help them discover new opportunities in both existing and new marketplaces, and to develop these opportunities into game-changing projects aimed at helping their customers stay ahead of the competition.

Quantum & Vecta

Quantum is a cost reduction programme based upon product selection, pricing and usage, data is collated and referenced to the amount of work carried out by the bodyshop to form KPI’s. In addition, there is a “”handicapping”” system which ensures consistency and allows data to be shared between bodyshops, particularly useful for bodyshop groups. The Quantum process consists of eleven modules, results can be significant as can the savings to the customer. The bodyshop performance is established over the previous 12 months, including setting the “handicap or adjusted” labour rate for bench-marking purposes. Once complete, the figures are examined and analysis begins, with target figures agreed along with a core product list and pricing.

The programme is then run for the initial month and figures are assessed by the Regional Business Manager and Morelli Technician to establish an action plan and set 3 to 6 month targets. Once the target figure is reached the data is continually monitored to ensure figures do not drift and new efficiencies can be set. Quantum data is collected using Vecta, a leading e-business software solution providing in depth information on our customers purchases.  The information allows expenditure to be appropriately categorised, ensuring that when calculating paint and dry goods profitability only the relevant items are included in the equation. Additionally inappropriate expenditure can be identified, such as excess of purchasing of a group of products might be identified which would also be picked up by the Quantum.
