International consultancy firm Columbus and Emydex, a provider of Production Management software systems, have announced their partnership in the Meat and Fish industry.
While Columbus build targeted solution sets on top of the ERP Microsoft Dynamics AX platform, Emydex software is designed to manage food production processes from door-to-door. This new partnership will allow for a two-way integration between Emydex and Dynamics AX, which will link the shop-floor seamlessly to the rest of an organisation using the software.
Managing Director of Columbus UK, Mary Hunter, said she was excited about the partnership as it shows Columbus' commitment to the meat industry.
"I am excited about this new solution and it brings many benefits for our key customers," she said.
"The integration of Emydex fits perfectly in Columbus' vertical strategy and enhances our position as a total Food solution provider, supporting best of breed solutions."
David McMahon, MD of Emydex, said: "After ten years of continuous product development and fine-tuning, our tailored software solutions have a significant depth and breadth of functionality developed specifically for the meat and fish industries. Our customers can now easily combine this with the power of Dynamics AX.
"By partnering with a global industry-focused consultancy like Columbus, we know we have joined forces with a company that can offer a low risk implementation to the specialised food processing industries."
