Poupart, one of the UK’s largest suppliers of quality soft-fruit were recently honored by Microsoft with an Excellence Award for Distribution Industry Leadership at Microsoft Convergence 2008. Poupart was awarded because of its innovative use of Microsoft technologies to deliver measurable benefits to its organisation and customers. They previously lacked the ability to track products and effectively manage their supply chain, but with the implementation of Microsoft Dynamics NAV – ERP technology they have revolutionised their business: ·         Seasonal variations and limited shelf life of their products meant forecasting and providing the right level of stock, in the right place, at the right time was difficult to achieve.
NOW >   They can monitor exactly what stock was shipped, to where, when and if any is returned. This enables them to plan more accurately and provide superior service to their customers.
·         Previously supply chain management involved ineffective, manual processes.
NOW >  Now shipment and order confirmations and invoices are sent automatically based on the sales order. They can also handle category management  and promotion planning on behalf of the supermarkets which helps to forge tighter customer relationships.
 

·         Data was held in many disparate systems so reporting across the business and supply chain was difficult.
NOW >  they have real time, accurate information they can slice and dice from any part of the business which has improved decision making.
