UK: Bruichladdich implements resource planning system

By | 19 February 2009

Bruichladdich, the Scotch whisky distiller, has overhauled its resource planning system to gain better control over production.

The south Hebridian distiller said yesterday (18 February) it had successfully implemented an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system from Solarsoft. The system replaces the distillery's disparate spreadsheets and software applications.

Solarsoft's ERP system allows control and visibility across Bruichladdich's entire production processes, the distiller said.

Fifteen users have access to the system across the various departments from warehousing, sales, bottling, accountancy, distillation, stock control, exporting and bottling.

Mark Reynier, managing director of Bruichladdich, said: "At Bruichladdich, we control the whisky from barley to the barrel to the bottle and as such we required supply chain control that would eradicate previously inefficient and time consuming paper-based procedures."
