Global Foods has chosen to replace its IT system with an Accord solution from Business Computer Projects (BCP).
The company operates a six lane cash and carry in Cardiff, offering a range of ambient, chilled and frozen foods. It also provides a delivered and pallet wholesale service to customers across south Wales. As a result of expansion it chose to move to BCP’s Accord as it offered forecast-based purchasing, pro-active telesales, integrated financials and full warehouse management with RF scanning and voice options. Global Foods has invested in a complete Accord software solution and new hardware including servers, cash and carry tills and RF scanners.
Mohammed Iqbal, managing director of Global Foods, said: “We looked carefully at the other packages available in the market place, but concluded that Accord was the only real option. It seems to be the only proven solution for the growing wholesaler. Alternative packages are claiming a great deal, but don’t appear to have the depth of functionality that I need to expand my business.”
