Leading onion packer signs up to Microsoft operational management system

Anglia Business Solutions has announced that Spalding-based Moulton Bulb Company, part of the Oldershaw Group, has selected the Microsoft Dynamics NAV-based LINKFresh solution.

Moulton Bulb is one of the UK's largest onion packers, producing 25 per cent of the UK's supermarket requirement from growers based in Lincolnshire, Norfolk and Cambridgeshire. It supplies both whole and prepared onions, garlic and shallots to retailers such as Co-op, Asda and Waitrose.

The fully integrated end-to-end LINKFresh solution will manage the operations of Moulton Bulb and Goldwood Moulton. The 60-user application will be deployed to replace a mixture of legacy processes and systems.

It will handle all operational aspects of the business including finance, planning and forecasting, live inventory management, quality control, packing centre management, warehouse operations and delivery schedules.

Moulton Bulb managing director David Hodgson said: "As the business expanded, we needed full operational transparency to satisfy the needs of our customers. This solution will streamline our operational processes, while providing invaluable dynamic management information and enable us to compete more effectively, thus realising our commercial potential".
