Savoury pastry products supplier Pork Farms is implementing an ERP system tailored for the food and beverage industry...

to improve visibility of business processes at a lower cost of ownership.

The company wanted to increase operational efficiency by optimising production through monitoring costs in real-time and maintaining detailed traceability throughout its supply chain.

Pork Farms is using Lawson QuickStep for Food and Beverage and Lawson Business Intelligence because, as a system developed for the industry that Pork farms operates in, it was easier and faster to implement.

Alan Webster, chief information officer at Pork Farms, said, "This way, we will benefit from maximum utilisation because of the good fit of the software to the business and a lowered total cost of ownership by cutting implementation time by more than 50%."

He said this would translate into cost savings in terms of consultancy fees, faster return on investment and reduced risk.

The system is scheduled to go live in May 2008 and will run on IBM iSeries to support 500 users across the company, which produces three million savoury pastry products every week.
