Scotland’s leading independent wines and spirits merchant, Inverarity Morton (IM), has committed to a new supply chain management system with voice-activated technology from Business Computer Projects (BCP) to further improve its competitive edge.
Following an intensive selection process, IM settled on the AccordTM system from BCP. Offering end-to-end Voice WMS capabilities and state-of-the-art real-time functionality, Accord enables companies to monitor and manage all operational aspects of their business at all times, from goods received to picking, stock-taking and shipping.
David Taylor, Finance Director at IM, said: “Accord will give us greater control of our entire picking operation which will improve accuracy, efficiency and productivity. In being able to continually track the ‘throughput’ of our products, we will also gain better business intelligence when it comes to the configuration of our entire product portfolio, meaning that our customers will benefit from a product offering that is wholly attuned to their needs.”
Founded in 1945, the privately-owned supplier has grown to become a market leader in Scotland by investing in its product, its service and its people. As a consequence, IM has developed long-lasting relationships with customers – something its new software supplier fully understands is critical to success.
“To survive in today’s competitive market wholesalers need to exploit real-time business data. They can then align their services to meet their customers’ needs,” explained Chris Pass at BCP. “We’re delighted to be working with IM to implement a system we know will help them deliver a service beyond their customers’ expectations.”
BCP has started work on the new 90-user Accord system at IM head office and distribution depot in Glasgow. It is due to go live early next year.
Accord is a flexible system that solves a range of issues throughout the supply chain. It is specifically designed for wholesalers in the food and drink industry to help them compete in today’s fast-paced digital world.
