10 Oct Bakkavor Bread rise to the challenge of their customers through the power of AMOS
Bakkavor specialise in making and developing private label prepared foods for the top global grocery retailers and well-known international foodservice operators. Bakkavor are committed to supplying outstanding quality, value and service to our customers. At Bakkavor we focus on doing things the right way: ensuring we consider the needs of those that matter to us as well as reducing our environmental impact where we have direct control.
Bakkavor Bread have been a longstanding customer of AdvanceFirst Technologies, first implementing Intercept-400 through the iSeries, but as business grew and having more and more complex customer requirements, Bakkavor Bread outsourced EDI, using the AdvanceFirst Technologies platform, AMOS (Advance Messaging Outsource Service).
“Connectivity issues based on our geographical location has always been a problem” explained Jamie Yale, IS Manager at Bakkavor Bread. “By utilising AMOS and having a fully hosted solution within AdvanceFirst Technologies data centre, this was a perfect solution to resolve our issues”.
Although Bakkavor Bread were originally using AdvanceFirst Technologies Intercept-400 product, there were other business processes that Bakkavor Bread wanted to undertake and these were not as viable by just using Intercept. Due to the connectivity issues occurring too, Bakkavor Bread moved over to AMOS seamlessly and crucially their existing EDI customers didn’t need to change anything, which was one of their prime objectives. As Bakkavor Bread grew in size, so did their supply chain and specifically more complex processes were being put in place. Utilising the highly experienced AdvanceFirst Managed Service team, Bakkavor Bread are the first company in the division to fully automate, orders, picking lists, delivery confirmations, ASN’s and invoices. With real-time information being processed and delivered to Bakkavor Bread, AMOS was the right move for Bakkavor Bread.
