Our Case Studies

Making sure even if you are in hospital you can always get a fantastic curry!


The Punjab Kitchen

 

The software - Sage 200, Sage 200 Manufacturing and Sage Payroll

 

The scenario

The Punjab Kitchen is an established food manufacture based in the North East who provide specialist meals to hospitals and a variety of other businesses. They had outgrown Sage 50 a while ago but hadn't felt that they had the right partner to help them make the change to a larger more encompassing business software solution.

A sample of the solution:

  • Advanced stock management to handle their complex food manufacturing and cold storage requirements
  • Detailed analysis and reporting to ensure business profitability and future planning
  • A scalable solution to deal with their ever growing catalogue of contract wins
  • A system offering full traceability and use by dates
  • Order analysis and logistics planning
Things have come a long way from our initial decision to go with The Northern Path. During the installation and process mapping stages of the project, I can honestly say that no stone has been left unturned. The result? We have got so much more out of this than just the software, we now have a solution ready to scale to our future growth aspirations Yaqoob - National Sales & Operations Manager at The Punjab Kitchen
