1st August, 2018, Cambridge, UK; LINKFRESH, the leading global provider of supply chain ERP solutions for the fresh produce industry, has announced a further contract to supply its LINKFRESH ERP solution to one of the UK’s largest fresh produce companies; Gomez.
Gomez’s existing software will be replaced with a fully integrated, industry specific, 250 user LINKFRESH ERP solution to streamline and manage end to end business operations including; procurement, planning, production, inventory, logistics, QC, finance and sales. Gomez will deploy the solution on-premise at Gomez’s datacentre, supported by the LINKFRESH team.
Talking about the project, Steve Parmenter, CIO at Gomez, said, “Our data and processes were fragmented across several different systems with limited interconnectivity, blurring our business performance visibility. We had very little business process automation and we were using manual processes and workarounds, which were prone to error and a drain on our resources. The LINKFRESH solution will provide a single solution across the entire business, improving our data capture accuracy & efficiency, standardising and optimising our operating processes and ultimately supporting our business growth.”
Parmenter continues, “"We selected LINKFRESH ERP, built on Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations Enterprise Edition, to take advantage of the rich industry specific features and knowledge incorporated in the solution, as well as providing us with a future-proofed solution which will scale and grow to meet the needs of our business both now and into the future.”
Gomez has been serving produce in the UK for 60 Years. With an ever expanding portfolio of some 100 suppliers around the world, servicing both the leading supermarkets and non-multiple customers. Gomez has an annual turnover of over £180m and is headquartered on an 11 acre site near Canterbury, Kent.
Andy Makeham, LINKFRESH CEO, commented, “Many of the world’s biggest and best fresh produce businesses are selecting LINKFRESH and we are very pleased to welcome Gomez amongst them. Our partnership with Microsoft and closely aligned product roadmaps coupled with the latest technologies and our vast industry expertise, will ensure that the LINKFRESH ERP solution will keep Gomez ahead of the competition.”
