Blackpool-based foodservice wholesaler, Trevors Warehouses Ltd, is investing in a 14 user Accord® system to handle all aspects of its business.
A family run business which has been operating in the Blackpool area since the early 1960’s, Trevors is one of the leading catering supply companies in the northwest and a key member of the Country Range group. The company operates its own fleet of multi-temperature controlled vehicles, supplying restaurants, pubs, and other catering establishments in the holiday resort and wider NW area with a comprehensive range of food products and janitorial supplies.
The investment in new technology is part of an ongoing capital investment in the business which will also include expanded premises to accommodate growth of the business over the coming years.
Appreciating the importance of IT in the wholesale sector, Trevors has been computerised for many years. Its latest IT solution had proved successful across much of the business, but offered only limited functionality in two key areas – telesales and purchase ordering – both critical to success in today’s highly competitive foodservice sector.
Recognising this fact, Trevors decided to invest in a new solution, opting for BCP’sAccord® which is widely recognised as a market leader in the two key areas of Telesales and Purchase Ordering and already delivering benefits for other members of the Country Range group.
Trevors’ investment covers BCP’s complete Accord® solution including Purchasing, Sales Order Management, Stock Control, Telesales and Financial Accounting and will give Trevors a fully integrated system covering all aspects of the business. The system is due to go live at the end of November this year.
Gary Hitchen, Trevors’ MD: “Accord’s® Purchasing and Telesales features are light years ahead of anything else we’ve seen. We knew fellow Country Range members were very happy with it, but seeing it in action at Creed Catering clinched it for us. We are confident Accord® will help us to grow our business successfully and, longer term, expect to expand on our initial investment.”
