Today marks an historic day for our partner Fareshare, the UK food charity. After a ton of planning, hard work and dedication by the FareShare teams, they have completed a 2-year network-wide rollout to get each of their operations across the UK online with Aidmatrix' Online Warehouse system. This involved converting a mix of manual processes, spreadsheets, databases and more into a single, uniform system and set of processes.
The benefits: FareShare now has a consolidated view of all their warehouse inventory across each of their depots across the UK. They can now access this information and perform global reporting 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, so they know exactly what is in inventory and what needs ordering. For FareShare, it is their first network-wide software implementation, their first on-line system, and it involved the support and advice of external consulting firm Accenture. FareShare is already seeing benefits from the system and anticipate many more benefits now that all their depots are online.
They also use the Aidmatrix Online Warehouse for KPI reporting to their food suppliers. FareShare and Aidmatrix are continuing to work together to develop the system so it can meet the specific requirements of the FareShare business model and network. Bottom line: FareShare will be able to serve even more people-in-need, more quickly and efficiently than ever before thereby supporting their mission to end hunger in the UK.
Aidmatrix congratulates the entire FareShare team on this accomplishment!
