Case Study

The Lobster Pot Ltd

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 have worked within the electrical industry for many years at organisations like Prysmian cables and Draka cables. We reviewed all aspects of the project to create a strategic plan on the current and future product ranges to compliment the business offering and assist growth. This meant reviewing the current supplier base, consolidation, sourcing additional items and auditing new manufacturers to provide the best value solution.
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.
““…Pro Outsourcing were able to walk into our business and understand the complex nature of the industry. They created a strategic plan to improve processes, efficiency, ensure compliance & reduce costs. I’m very pleased with the result and look forward to ongoing work with Tom and his team…”
