Anglia Business Solutions has announced that its Microsoft Dynamics based LINKFresh food supply chain management solution is to be deployed at Hilton Foods Ireland, one of the Hilton Food Group plc sites, who are Europe’s largest dedicated red meat packing business.

The two-phase LINKFresh solution will replace the existing financial solution and integrate with the operational systems of the business.  Once deployed, the solution will encompass Financials, Supply Chain Management, Manufacturing and Supply Planning.  The system will also include a mobile application for Quality Control, a cloud based retail survey solution and advanced management reporting using the Zap Business Analytics suite incorporated within the LINKFresh solution.

Pat Tracey, Group IT Manager at Hilton Food Group, said “Our Irish business is expanding and we need a single fully integrated solution that will grow with our business.  We were impressed with the food industry functionality already included within the LINKFresh solution.  This will allow us to refine our operational practices for maximum efficiency and provide improved management information.”

Commenting on the project, Anglia’s CEO, Robert Frost, said “We are very pleased that Hilton Foods Ireland has chosen us to work in partnership with them in the deployment of the LINKFresh suite. Once this leading edge solution is fully implemented, it will provide their management team with a range of productivity aids designed to enhance their impressive track record in the meat processing industry.”
