Seafood company Sealord has shortlisted three candidates to replace its ageing Geac resource management software system.
Sealord IS manager Andrew Deans says the company is considering Movex by Swedish company Intentia, JDE 5 by JD Edwards and a fishing industry-specific system called WiseFish by Navision, the Danish company recently bought by Microsoft.
Deans says a decision will be made and presented to the Sealord board by October. The new suite will replace a green-screen version of Fact i/2, which the company has been using for 13 years. It will be an international system which covers financials, process manufacturing, purchasing, inventory and sales.
The Sealord Group operates facilities in New Zealand, the UK and China and a marketing network throughout Asia, North America, Europe and Australasia.
