Keelings Knowledge Ltd., an Irish based ERP software provider for the fresh produce industry, and the Munich-based IT service company RI-Solution, met with the Irish President Michael D. Higgins in Berlin at the event “A Celebration of Irish Industry Presence in Germany” to announce their business partnership to implement an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) product in the German market.
Both partners have profound knowledge from within the fresh produce industry as well as outstanding expertise in delivering ERP projects successfully. This collaboration ensures that future German clients in the fresh produce industry will receive the best possible ERP software implementation and support from a local partner who have similar values and passion.
Keelings ERP system is tailored to meet the specific needs of the fruit and vegetable sector and can support all relevant business areas, e.g. procurement and sales, logistics, quality assurance, food safety, production, forecast planning, stock and warehouse management, management reporting, and includes a strong business intelligence tool.
Since this ERP system was developed by experts from the fresh produce industry, it can optimise business processes and help companies in this industry to generate solid growth.
“Keelings Knowledge has grown from within the industry; which means our heritage and experience in this area enables us to continue to develop software solutions to unlock our customers' potential, to enable them to scale their fresh produce business and achieve their ambitions,” highlights Operations Director Barry Moore. This software has been implemented successfully in third-party customers globally. “The partnership between Keelings Knowledge and RI-Solution represents a key milestone for us in the German market”, says Moore.
The Keelings family have been in the fresh produce industry for three generations dating back to 1926. They have been developing software exclusively for their business since the 1980s and in 2012 they created a separate business which is now called Keelings Knowledge with currently 25 highly qualified professionals.
“With Keelings Knowledge, we have found the right partner to cover the individual needs of the fresh produce industry with regard to an ERP software solution and are really looking forward to working with them," says Tobias Fausch, Managing Director of RI-Solution.
Founded in 2002, the IT services company RI-Solution, subsidiary of the German Munich-based BayWa Group, provides a portfolio of services and solutions. The company specialises in the interests of the retail and wholesale trade and has extensive knowledge of the trading processes in the business segments of agriculture, technology, energy, construction materials and hardware stores.
