Supply chain specialist BCP is expanding into the Middle East with its latest customer - Foodlink Bahrain.
Supply chain specialist BCP is expanding into the Middle East with its latest customer - Foodlink Bahrain. Based in Manama, Juffair in the prosperous Kingdom of Bahrain, Foodlink Bahrain is a recently established foodservice company servicing Bahrains 5* hotels and high end restaurants with foods imported from across the globe, including the UK, US, Japan and Australia. As part of its rapid expansion plans the company is moving into a new, purpose-built depot where it will be upgrading from the current paper-based systems to BCPs specialist Accord Foodservice solution to support its future growth.
BCP is one of the UKs top suppliers of specialist Supply Chain solutions to the Food and Drink Wholesale industry, with clients including Creed Catering, T Quality, BWG, Musgrave and SPAR.
Key to securing the contract was the comprehensive functionality available within Accord, together with BCPs knowledge and experience of the market sector. As Mark Huggins, Operations Director at Foodlink Bahrain, explains: I was aware of Accords reputation as a market leader in the foodservice sector and BCPs track record of delivering successful implementations from my time working in the UK foodservice industry.
The investment covers BCPs complete Accord solution, including Purchasing, Sales Order Management, Stock Control, Multicurrency and Financial Accounting and will give Foodlink Bahrain a fully integrated system covering all aspects of its business. Implementation timescales are yet to be finalised, but will be planned to coincide with the opening of the companys new depot.
Mark Huggins: Accord is a sophisticated system which will scale up easily as the company grows and provide an excellent fit for our enlarged operation in the years to come. Were keen to go live as soon as possible so we can start to take advantage of its outstanding functionality.
