David Murphy Towing

David Murphy Towing

The company was set up by David Murphy in 1963 as David Murphy Engineering. It originally manufactured sump guards for rally cars, car ramps and then many other accessories followed. These included towbars and roof racks for commercial and passenger carrying vehicles.

In 1966 David Murphy Engineering rebranded to become David Murphy Towing Brackets Ltd, trading as David Murphy Towing. In addition to towbars and accessories such as spare wheels, ladder racks and wheel clamps. In 1992 we began manufacturing Broniss. This decision proved to be a huge success and Broniss Trailers is now one of Ireland’s leading light trailer brands. David Murphy Towing is also recognised as a quality secured member of the National Trailer and Towing Association (NTTA). Membership of this national body ensures that David Murphy Towing adheres to tight controls and permits its equipment to be tested and ratified. David Murphy Towing is also recommended by the Caravan Club, Caravan and Camping Club and the AA.



The Directors of Murphy Transport had previously invested in Sage 200 from another local Sage Partner and had never realised the benefits of the software solution in its current “vanilla” installed state. As a result, the benefits that management had expected from Sage 200 did not materialise and the company rather than looking for another solution looked for a more experience Sage Partner to work with to re-implement a tailored configuration of Sage 200 more suited to their business processes. Having discussed their requirements with FUEL’s Senior Sage consultants, it was agreed that FUEL would now be the new Sage Partner for David Murphy Towing to restore their initial investment and put their Sage 200 project back on track.


As a result of FUEL setting-up David Murphy Towing to e-Mail their Invoices directly from Sage 200, the Invoice procedure is able to operate more efficiently and benefit from diminishing costs for printing, postage, branded stationary and labour. FUEL also helped re-design the company’s Dispatch Notes to print the full details including a specific Barcode on a self-adhesive label which is then fixed directly to the package for their logistics partner to use. Following a successful implementation of Sage 200, tailored this time to the David Murphy Towing business practices, the company have now eliminated the need to create additional Excel spreadsheets for financial data or reporting. As a result the financial department of the company are able to be more efficient and pro-active in their daily tasks.


FUEL updated the David Murphy Towing Sage 200 software to the current version and through various project planning meetings, agreed what was initially expected and what was now required from of the company’s investment in Sage 200. As a result of the fast moving everyday pace of the business, it was vital to be up-to-date with regard to key financial reports. FUEL re-configured Sage 200 in such a way that these key reports were extracted in a much more user friendly format that gave management a clear picture of the business as and when required. FUEL used their Sage knowledge and expertise to set-up David Murphy Towing to e-Mail their Invoices from inside Sage rather than the more costly and time consuming traditional method of posting invoices. Because of the nature of the business, David Murphy Towing rely heavily on their logistics partners and FUEL explored news ways to streamline the documentation to speed-up the dispatch of orders.

It is a pleasure to work with the new Sage 200 interface. I have used a number of solutions in the past and I find our new Sage 200 desktop extremely easy to use and full of functionality. Now that our Sage 200 is specifically implemented by FUEL to suit our way of working and complement the way we carry out our daily business, we see the benefits we initially expected and look forward to the development of our business systems with FUEL in the future.
