Following a number of acquisitions, Glendale has grown over recent years to the point where its previous IT systems were no longer fit for purpose. There was no integration between systems and many processes were paper-based, which created delays and inaccuracies.
Paul Burkitt, md of Glendale Foods, said: "It would have taken us another 12 to 18 months to develop the same level of functionality in a similar 'generic' ERP offering. Solarsoft understands the specific requirements and compliance issues we have, and this is reflected in Tropos. Everything is in a central location, which gives us easy access to all data including accurate product costings and real-time details on stock levels."
Burkitt added: "We have a vast number of stock keeping units, as we have hundreds of products, but Tropos gives us the ability to reduce the level of stock significantly so that we can operate a 'just-in-time' model. This allows us to release cash, reduce our costs of storing and monitoring stock, while also enabling us to manufacture in more economical quantities."
