CSA carves up a deal with abattoir

Regional value added reseller Computer Systems Australia (CSA) has sunk its hooks into a new vertical market following the company snagging a deal with one of Australia's fastest-growing abattoirs.

Meaty deal puns aside, the Newcastle-based VAR has found itself in demand by the abattoir community after it successfully scaled Country Fresh Australia's back office and financial system to handle its growing export business.

Believe it or not, the abattoir industry has sophisticated financial ‘abattoir' software, according to a somewhat bemused Greg Lord, business development manager for CSA, who claims the VAR had to integrate Country Fresh's existing systems with eBackOffice from mid-market software vendor Epicor.

In addition to the software component, Lord says the VAR was able to bring hardware into what has become a "hefty" contract for the reseller.

Country Fresh, which is part of the JSA Jackson & Son primary produce conglomerate, needed to consolidate the budgeting assessment and data analysis functions of its financial applications with foreign currency rates to balance its exports.

"One of the key issues in a financial system dealing across different countries is managing reporting and analysis procedures in multiple currencies," says Helen McNeill, financial controller at Country Fresh. "We are currently dealing with a number of countries around the world."

"CSA helped us select the solution and then remotely supported our system. The implementation was done in the shortest possible time," says a satisfied McNeill. "It enabled us to meet our strict deadlines towards our overseas customers."
