MAM, TIMco and HB42 will all be appearing at the NMBS Exhibition on 10 April at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry.

Visitors will have the opportunity to learn more about MAM's business management solutions, as well as its forthcoming product catalogue. Known as Tradercat, the electronic catalogue is designed to bring benefits for both builders' merchants and DIY retailers by improving the information that is accessible at the point of sale.

Counter staff will be able to use the catalogue to help their customers make more informed buying decisions and speed up transactions. Functionality within Tradercat enables users to search, filter and compare products from a range of brands, while price and stock details are immediately available.

Suppliers providing data to the catalogue will be able to upload products, specifications and photographs so merchants always have access to the latest information.The electronic catalogue is compatible with MAM's Trader system, which the software provider will also be demonstrating to show visitors.The ERP application is designed to help builders' merchants streamline and improve their day-to-day operations. Functionality within the user-friendly software includes the ability to simplify stock control, increase profits by finding best-value suppliers and access information at point of sale.

TIMco will be revealing extensions to the TIMco SHIELD range – including the new SHIELD Protective Board, as well as additions to the VETO range. Demonstrations of both new products will be available, with the new protective board having been laid on the trade space floor for the whole day.
