Grimsby Fish Processor Invests in Integreater®
JCS Fish is one of the latest businesses to invest in Integreater®, the specialist food software from Systems Integration.
October 10, 2013 (Newswire.com) - The Grimsby-based salmon specialist is BRC accredited and supplies both fresh and frozen products through their Big Fish brand and their customers' own labels.
Founded in 2000 by Andrew and Louise Coulbeck, JCS has experienced high business growth over the last few years. As a result they are focused on improving production processes, traceability and having real-time business information to make proactive decisions.
Integreater® controls all purchasing and intake processes, as well as production and critical yield points such as head removal, deboning and filleting. By utilising real-time data capture and bar code scanning, JCS have automated their factory floor processes. This has eliminated human error and created a single point of data collection for all departments to work from.
Director Louise Coulbeck commented: "We recognise that having timely information is a key factor in maximising profitability for fish processors. Integreater® provides real-time visibility on all on-site and off-site stocks, as well as despatched product. It works by capturing information throughout the process, giving us complete forward and backward traceability. We now have the ability to find product history and information in seconds."
"Our factory has now become faster, leaner and paperless. This has increased operator productivity while enabling us to have reliable business information that can be utilised by various managers and supervisors. We now have full control over our production processes, ensuring that we are producing the highest quality products as efficiently as possible. We want to maintain our success by working in partnership with Systems Integration and continuously looking at ways to improve and invest in our business."
