Supply chain management system wins computing award

Computer boffins have singled out a business management system used by fresh-food specialist Produce World Group.

British Computer Society awarded the system a medal in the business-to-business category for project excellence at its recent awards ceremony.

Produce World Group, based in Peterborough, manages numerous fresh-produce supply chains for partners in retail and food sectors.

Partners including Solanum, Isleham Fresh Produce and Marshall Bros (Butterwick) receive extra finance and IT support from Produce World.

David Clarke, the society's chief executive, said: "The winners and medalists are examples of best practice and professionalism.

"They show technology as an integral and expected part of everyday life and one that's at the heart of every business.

"In the current economic situation it is rewarding to see IT is continuing to lead through innovation to deliver real business benefits."

The shortlisted LinkFresh system was supplied by Anglia Business Solutions, run by managing director David Hurley.
