As a large global seafood enterprise and one of New Zealand’s largest fishing companies, holding 20 percent of New Zealand’s fishing quota, Sealord’s systems and processes are its competitive advantage. With more than 1200 staff and a complex seasonal business that has grown and evolved significantly through acquisition and business change over the past three decades, Sealord needed a modern and forward-looking technology platform that would support these changing requirements, offering greater insight into business performance and driving vastly improved operational efficiency.
Sealord’s existing core business system, having served the organisation for 20 years, “had come to the end of its life,” Grant Wilson, Sealord’s Business Support Services Manager, says. “We needed to look at our key processes and see how we could get greater efficiency gains. We needed fewer manual transactions, less reliance on spread sheets, and improved reporting,” he explains.
With ERP processes critical to every area of its business, Sealord couldn’t afford disruption to ‘business as usual’ throughout the 18-month project to replace a system that had been entrenched at the heart of the enterprise for 20 years. “Sealord also needed an ERP system that would deliver straight away,” Grant explains "And thats exactly what we got".
