Potato supplier Naturally Best is installing a £300,000 Tropos enterprise planning system from SSI to help manage...
its expansion during 2006.
The system will provide real-time information to suppliers and customers of Naturally Best, which has grown by 60% a year since 2001.
Company secretary Mike Pledger said, "Our existing ERP system was based on 'after the event' reporting, which meant that before we could view meaningful information, we needed to complete paperwork using the data collected. That was simply not good enough for the kind of operation we have become."
