Fuller, Smith & Turner P.L.C (Fullers), one of the UK's leading independent brewers, is to use Kewill SPEX, an automated export document production and management system from Kewill, a global provider of dynamic supply network solutions, for the administration of its fast-growing export business.
Bronwen White, IT Development Manager at Fullers, said, Kewill SPEX will help us manage our global expansion allowing export staff to focus on more strategic tasks rather than excess administration and data entry. We also expect the data to be more accurate.
White added, We chose Kewill based on their reputation, strength of domain expertise, positive customer references and our own due diligence of the product, which we believe is the most complete in the market.
In the last three years, Fullers has experienced a 51% increase in volume of exports, and in the last two years the number of export customers has increased by 63%. To manage the administration of these exports Fullers relied on a standalone system. This would not integrate with its existing ERP application and the New Export System (NES) which is the HM Revenue & Customs website for export declarations. At times, both of these systems require export information so the existing process led to double and sometimes triple keying of information.
These systems challenges together with the continued drive by the business to expand its export footprint, led Fullers to invest in the Kewill SPEX export document production and management system. Data will now only be keyed once into the ERP system and due to its ability to provide integration capabilities, Kewill SPEX can automatically collate this information and then electronically send out export declarations to NES.
Jacquie Boast, Chief Marketing Officer from Kewill said, We already have a successful business relationship with Fullers having provided them with an e-commerce solution. With this contract for Kewill SPEX they are able to export to any country in the world safe in the knowledge that they will automatically provide the right information that is legally required for each specific location. Kewills Supply Network suite is now delivering increased value to our customers by enabling us to cross sell global solutions in each of our local markets
