QV FOODS EFFECTIVELY MANAGE THE BUSINESS BASIC


Companies within the UK food sector supply chain face massive challenges. Processors are under increasing pressure to produce more options, meet volatile changes in demand, constantly improve quality while still keeping prices to a minimum. In such an environment effectively managing the workforce and keeping a tight rein on production costs is essential, especially the labour element that still tends to predominate in many food businesses. Lincolnshire based QV Foods is one producer that is now in a far better position to achieve this necessary control, having significantly enhanced its HR and cost control capability, through the implementation of the integrated ‘Equator’ HR solution from K3 Syspro.

“Now, not only are we extremely confident that the real cost are being absorbed by the right unit, but managers now have access to the accurate cost analysis as close to real time as possible. Up to date reports are ready for use by the management team during each morning’s production meeting”
