Foodservice wholesaler, Cambridge Food Company, is making a significant investment in an 11 user Accord system from supply chain solutions specialist, Business Computer Projects Ltd (BCP).
Established in Cambridge over 20 years ago, Cambridge Food Company is a family run chilled food wholesaler servicing the catering trade in the East of England. Customers include restaurants, hotels, caterers and independent food outlets, as well as Cambridge University colleges. The company prides itself on its excellence and customer focus and uses its own fleet of purpose-built, multi-temperature vehicles to deliver a range of premium speciality, ethical and local produce.
BCP is one of the UKs top suppliers of specialist Supply Chain solutions to the Food and Drink Wholesale industry with key clients including BWG, Musgrave, SPAR, T Quality and Creed Catering.
The investment in new technology was prompted by Cambridge Foods rapidly expanding business and the need for a specialist solution which could support this growth and easily scale upwards to meet the needs of an enlarged operation. The existing general purpose computer system lacked many of the facilities required for Foodservice and generated a lot of time consuming manual processes.
The investment covers BCPs complete Accord solution including Purchasing, Sales Order Management, Stock Control, Telesales, Financial Accounting and Customer Relationship Management (CRM). It will be implemented over the course of the next few months.
Cambridge Foods selected BCP because of its successful implementation record, its financial stability and Accords powerful functionality. Mark Hulme, Director, Cambridge Foods, explains: Weve been struggling with our current system for some time and have had to work hard to make up for its shortcomings. Accord is an excellent fit for our business, particularly in the key areas of telesales, pricing, ordering and stock control. We cant wait to have it up and running so we can take advantage of its functionality.
