Media Release: Cooper Software deliver ERP system enhancements to Whitworths


SYSTEMS integration specialist, Cooper Software, is delighted to announce that they have delivered a robust data integration solution to leading whole food supplier, Whitworths.

The project focused on creating an electronic data exchange solution to and from Whitworths’ existing ERP system in order to improve processes, efficiency and speed across their business.

Begins a spokesperson: “The solution automates the sharing of data between external enterprise business systems and also allows system administrators to create and amend the data interfaces in operation, review messages exchanged between systems, evaluate errors and minimise impact on the business.

“It also offers Whitworths the ability to share data with external partners. The solution will be used to manage Whitworths’ manufacturing processes including procurement, quality management, inventory tracking and control, sales and manufacturing.:

As part of the project engagement, Cooper Software provided Whitworths with an expert ERP consultant as a dedicated project manager to provide the resources, knowledge and expertise required to help Whitworths’ end-users solve any ERP related problems, help with the systems design and deal with day to day tasks during implementation.

Chris Owen, director of Process Improvement at Whitworths, commented: “From a strategic perspective, we are looking at our business as a whole to see how we can develop our ERP system to help us to work smarter and drive improvements.

“During our initial discussions with Cooper Software it was evident the team had a thorough understanding of the needs of our business and how these could best be met.

“The solutions they have proposed, once fully implemented, will certainly have a major impact and play a significant role in driving our business and the ERP implementation project forward.”

Frank Cooper, founder and managing director of Cooper Software, noted: “We are delighted to be working with Whitworths to deliver an important project and solution which will help the Company to get the best out of their ERP software.

“This is another great example of how our highly skilled development team provided valuable support and guidance in developing and improving Whitworths’ ERP solution and we are confident that the project will result in large efficiency and process improvements for their business.”
