Food and drink wholesaler Morris Son (Leeds) is investing in an 18-user Accord Distribution system from supply chain solutions specialist Business Computer Projects (BCP).
Established over 25 years ago, Morris Son is one of the UK’s largest clearance and residual stock management specialists.
The company operates a delivered and cash and carry service from its three purpose-built warehouses in Leeds, serving the needs of customers throughout the UK as well as a growing export operation. Customers range from market traders and small convenience stores through to discount chains and other wholesalers.
Having outgrown its existing and ageing IT solution – an accounting package with bespoke elements – Morris Son undertook a survey of available systems, and opted for BCP’s Accord.
Morris Son’s investment encompasses the complete Accord solution, including purchasing, sales order management, telesales and financial accounting. It will be implemented during summer 2005, ready to go live early in August.
Andy Needham, Morris Son managing director, commented: “We were very impressed by BCP’s clear understanding of our market sector and business requirements and the depth of functionality within the Accord solution. It addresses all our business requirements and will provide a solid foundation for the growth and expansion of Morris Son over the coming years.”
