Foodservice wholesaler, Cambridge Food Company, is making a significant investment in an 11-user Accord system from supply chain solutions specialist, Business Computer Projects (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.

 

Cambridge Foods' needed to invest in new, specialist technology that could support its rapidly expanding business and scale to meet the needs of an enlarged operation. The existing general purpose computer system lacked many of the facilities required for foodservice operations and generated a lot of time-consuming manual processes.

 

The investment covers BCP's 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 Accord's powerful functionality.

 

Mark Hulme, Cambridge Foods director explained: "We've 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 can't wait to have it up and running so we can take advantage of its functionality.
