Wensleydale Dairy Products, producers of the only real Yorkshire Wensleydale cheese in the world, are using Opera 3.
Working with Pegasus Platinum Partner TSG, Wensleydale have implemented Financials, Payroll and Supply Chain applications and Pegasus XRL reporting, and will use the solution to increase visibility and improve productivity across their Yorkshire-based business.
Having used Opera II for a number of years, Wensleydale upgraded to Opera 3 to take advantage of enhanced supply chain management functionality. They had previously used manual processes and spreadsheets to manage their supply chain. However, as part of an initiative to improve efficiency, the dairy company required a more sophisticated solution to manage peaks and troughs in supply and demand, and optimise service levels.
“The new functionality in Opera 3 means that we can perform our month-end much faster, and because stock management is integrated with our accounting processes, we have 100% visibility of inventory, production and delivery schedules,” comments Financial Director Paul Birnie. “Now that we have this benchmark we hope to be able to tighten our processes further and reduce inventory to maximise efficiencies across the organisation.”
