The Lobster Pot is Wales’ biggest exporter of live crabs and lobster. The business is seeing significant growth and are looking to double the size of its processing capability.
As part of this expansion the business also needs to review its ICT functionality as it is uncertain that its current systems and processes are robust or integrated enough to handle much larger, more complex business.
Pro Outsourcing were able to provide a fully funded work package via European Regional Development fund to walk through the business requirements from receipt of orders through to despatch of goods. Looking at the business compliance requirements, software, accounts and how all the elements come together to create a process flow and highlight areas for improvement
The Lobster Pot operates in an industry that must comply with strict traceability and reporting legislation. Pro Outsourcing created a strategic plan that focused on; Purchasing, goods receipt, labelling, stock visibility, BOM structures, Business software functionality, ICT Hardware and a full suite of monthly reports.
This considerably reduced manual processes and improved the functionality of managing data throughout the business, and resulted in increased labour productivity, stress free traceability, real-time stock status and management reports based on actual business results.
