26th July 2011, Cambridge, UK
Anglia Business Solutions today announces that its
Microsoft Dynamics based LINKFresh®
Business Management suite has been selected by QV Foods to manage its potato
and vegetable growing and packing operations.
The LINKFresh solution will be deployed at QV Foods
headquarters in Holbeach across QV and related companies Fresh Approach
Produce and Europa Produce, linking to Pseedco Limited which already
operates on a Microsoft Dynamics NAV platform and will therefore include the
company’s sites in March and Scotland. The total project which will be
phased will see the replacement of the Exchequer financial system followed
by partial deployment of the LINKFresh production suite. This will initially
encompass produce trading, forecasting, EDI, packaging inventory and sales
order processing as well as the core ledgers and financial functions.
Talking about the project, Chris Rimmer, Finance
Director at QV Foods, said “We were looking for a fully integrated industry
specific solution which could help to drive the business further forward by
providing one source of accurate up to date information across all our
businesses. In particular, we require a system that satisfies our
current, and continually increasing, transactional volumes and provides
resilient, functional foundations for our growing and diverse business. The
LINKFresh system from Anglia is recognised as an industry leading
application and will provide us with the level of transactional efficiency,
clarity and timeliness of management reporting we need to improve our
competitiveness in this sector.”
“We are very pleased to be working with QV Foods and
to be welcoming another of the UK’s major potato suppliers to our customer
base,” said Anglia’s Commercial Director Robert Frost. “QV is an
ambitious company that has experienced rapid growth recently. The LINKFresh
deployment will enable them to leverage the power of a leading edge business
management solution as an aid to realising their full commercial potential
and facilitating further growth”.
