Food and drink wholesaler, Morris & Son (Leeds) Ltd, is investing in an 18 user Accord Distribution system from supply chain solutions specialist, Business Computer Projects Ltd (BCP).
Established over 25 years ago, Morris & Son is one of the UK’s largest clearance and residual stock management specialists. The company operates a Delivered and Cash & Carry service from its three purpose built warehouses in Leeds, serving the needs of customers throughout the UK as well as a growing export operation.

BCP is one of the UK’s top suppliers of specialist Supply Chain solutions to the Food and Drink Wholesale industry with key clients including Woodward Foodservice, BWG, Musgrave, Pets at Home, Pedigree Wholesale and SPAR.
Morris & Son has grown steadily in recent years, outgrowing its existing and ageing IT solution – an accounting package with bespoke elements. Identifying the need for a proper sector specific solution as the foundation for future growth plans, the company undertook a survey of available systems, opting for BCP’sAccord, impressed by its functional fit to their requirements, ease of use and widespread deployment in the market place.
Morris & Son’s investment encompasses the complete Accord solution, including Purchasing, Sales Order Management, Telesales and Financial Accounting. It will be implemented during summer 2005, ready to go live early in August.
Andy Needham, Morris & Son Managing Director: “We were very impressed by BCP’s clear understanding of our market sector and business requirements and the depth of functionality within the Accord solution. It addresses all our business requirements and will provide a solid foundation for the future growth and expansion of Morris & Son over the coming years”.
