Campbells Prime Meat
Real-time visibility for transactionally intensive Campbells Prime Meat
When Campbells Prime Meat decided to invest in food processing software, particularly to move away from manual recording processes, it spent considerable time researching the marketplace. For Campbells, SI’s knowledge and expertise within the catering butchers and food service sector stood out for this award-winning business.
“Visibility and traceability are essential for us as we run a transactionally intensive business. Campbells produces 1500 orders a day, with five or six different types of product in each one.” Stephen Sweeney, Financial Director for Campbells explained.
“Our order to fulfilment time is very short. We take orders up until midnight and despatch the following morning before 06:00. Everything we sell is made to order; there isn’t any line production and we despatch around 7500 items a day.”
Discovering the SI difference
“We spoke to several suppliers in the marketplace but found that all of them had generic IT solutions they were offering to put into our food manufacturing business. These suppliers failed to understand our processes, the high product proliferation and what we are trying to achieve.
“When we met Rob Stephens, Managing Director of SI, it was different. We’d found someone from a food manufacturing business who’d created an IT solution specifically for this environment. We were impressed because he was from our side of the fence. He’s someone that understands food manufacturing and that was the point of connection for us. What Rob says carries a lot of weight because he’s done our job.”
