Systems integration specialist, Cooper Software, has delivered a robust data integration solution to whole food supplier, Whitworths, to develop their existing ERP system.
The project focused on delivering electronic data exchange to and from Whitworths' ERP system in order to improve the efficiency, speed and processes across their business.
The data integration solution will be used to manage Whitworths' manufacturing processes including Procurement, Quality Management, Inventory Tracking and Control, Sales and Manufacturing. It automates the sharing of data between external enterprise business systems while providing the facility for system administrators to create and amend the data interfaces in operation, to review the messages exchanged between systems and to be able to review errors and minimise impact on the business. It also provides the ability to share data with external partners.
As part of the project engagement, Cooper Software also provided Whitworths with an expert ERP consultant who was dedicated to the project as Project Manager, providing the resources, knowledge and expertise required to help Whitworths' end-users solve any ERP related problems, help with the systems design and to deal with day to day tasks during their implementation.
Chris Owen, Director of Process Improvement at Whitworths commented: "From a strategic perspective, we are looking at our business as a whole to see how we can develop our ERP system to help us to work smarter and drive improvements. During our initial discussions with Cooper Software it was evident the team had a thorough understanding of the needs of our business and how these could best be met. The solutions they have proposed, once fully implemented, will certainly have a major impact and play a significant role in driving our business and the ERP implementation project forward."
Frank Cooper, Founder and Managing Director of Cooper Software noted: "We are delighted to be working with Whitworths to deliver an important project and solution which will help the Company to get the best out of their ERP software. This is another great example of how our highly skilled development team provided valuable support and guidance in developing and improving Whitworths' ERP solution and we are confident that the project will result in large efficiency and process improvements for their business."
