Systems Integration (SI),  a software house dedicated to providing solutions for the food processing industry, has announced that its latest customer is Millers of Speyside. The abattoir has invested in Integreater’s livestock management solution – including bookings, lairage management, a grading station and livestock tracker.

Integreater is a modular, factory ERP system for food processing businesses. It connects the factory floor and office – working seamlessly, no matter how many sites a business has, or where they are located. Because it’s modular, it can be used to target key and complex areas, or manage the processor’s entire business. Manufacturers decide how much to invest and when. The software can be integrated with existing systems and is flexible enough to adapt to any changing needs and business growth.

Millers, which is based in the Cairngorm National Park in the Scottish Highlands, slaughters cattle, sheep and pigs. Supplying both the food service and retail sectors, the business is a member of Quality Meat Scotland’s ‘Specially Selected’ Scotch Meat scheme.

Millers has a reputation for quality produce from a natural environment, famed for its superior grass fed livestock. Supplying its products to businesses around the world, Millers’ meat is served in some of the UK’s finest Michelin starred restaurants.

Millers chose to invest in Integreater® because it offered many more business benefits than their existing solution. As the Scottish meat sector’s leading software supplier, management were confident that SI would be a strategic partner to drive their business forward, with the potential to help maximise productivity across the site.

Visibility

Millers no longer have to rely on limited, retrospective data. They now have live visibility and are able to locate the information they need in seconds, as well as run reports with a click of the mouse.

Everybody now has a live view of what is happening throughout the process and it’s not just confined to staff on site. Business owners can also access this information when they are away from the office.

Control

Integreater’s livestock tracker is a central reporting application which gives staff more control over the process. Everyone can see progress against expectation, allowing any issues or delays to be immediately identified and swiftly dealt with.

Management can view throughput efficiency and categorise carcases according to customer specifications. This means that they can be used most effectively to get the best value from each one.

Analysis

This information can also be used in the longer term. For example, management can now analyse supplier performance. It’s easy for them to see which farmers are providing the right quality and quantity to meet their preferred breed and confirmation specifications. This information helps them to make procurement decisions based upon historical supply analysis.

Traceability

Increased visibility also means that Millers is able to quickly and easily demonstrate traceability. Finding information for customer requests and audits used to take hours, now it takes seconds. The ability to do this is particularly important when meeting the demands of quality accreditations.
