Who is Philip Dennis Foodservice?
Archie Dennis opened his butchers shop over 100 years ago. Now the family-owned business provides food services to clients across all of South West England, thriving thanks to their constant innovation and progression.
"Our Chorus ERP system is running the business, but we can't readily get at the information we need. We used Excel for too much of our daily reporting. This had the usual problems of reconciling values in and between spreadsheets. This is why we bought m-Power," explains Rockey.
Real-time ERP data
"All our critical reporting is now delivered in real-time to our users' browsers with m-Power. Users can verify the data immediately - drilling behind any figures down to the lowest level of detail anywhere in the ERP system. You can justify every figure and know that everyone is looking at the same set of numbers," says Rockey.
A single version of truth
"It used to be that spreadsheets contained someone's version of the data. Now we have one standard company version of our data accessible by everyone on the intranet. It saves people so much time and gives them better information. They find it easy to use and they trust the results."
"m-Power gives power to the IT department. We now provide more services that used to require outside consultancy, saving time and expense."
Empowering the IT department
"m-Power also gives power to the IT department. We now provide more services that used to require outside consultancy, saving time and expense. We now have a ready answer to the growing demands from our business."
"m-Power has enabled us to get our ideas on the road quicker - we can serve our ourselves."
