Millers is latest business to invest in Integreater®

12 October 2015

Systems Integration (SI) is proud to announce that its latest customer is Millers of Speyside.

The abattoir has invested in Integreater’s livestock management solution - including bookings, lairage management, a grading station and livestock tracker.

Millers, which is based in the Cairngorm National Park in the Scottish Highlands, slaughters cattle, sheep and pigs. Supplying both the food service and retail sectors, the business is a member of Quality Meat Scotland's 'Specially Selected' Scotch Meat scheme.

Millers have a reputation for quality produce from a natural environment, famed for its superior grass fed livestock. Supplying its products to businesses around the world, Millers’ meat is served in some of the UK’s finest Michelin starred restaurants. 

So why did they buy? 
Millers chose to invest in Integreater® because it offered many more business benefits than their existing solution. 

As the Scottish meat sector’s leading software supplier, management were confident that SI would be a strategic partner to drive their business forward, with the potential to help maximise productivity across the site. 

Visibility
Millers no longer have to rely on limited, retrospective data. They now have live visibility and are able to locate the information they need in seconds, as well as run reports with a click of the mouse.  

Everybody now has a live view of what is happening throughout the process and it’s not just confined to staff on site. Business owners can also access this information when they are away from the office. 

Control
Integreater’s livestock tracker is a central reporting application which gives staff more control over the process. Everyone can see progress against expectation, allowing any issues or delays to be immediately identified and swiftly dealt with.

Management can view throughput efficiency and categorise carcases according to customer specifications. This means that they can be used most effectively to get the best value from each one. 
 
Analysis
This information can also be used in the longer term. For example, management can now analyse supplier performance. It’s easy for them to see which farmers are providing the right quality and quantity to meet their preferred breed and confirmation specifications. This information helps them to make procurement decisions based upon historical supply analysis. 

Traceability 
Increased visibility also means that Millers is able to quickly and easily demonstrate traceability. Finding information for customer requests and audits used to take hours, now it takes seconds. The ability to do this is particularly important when meeting the demands of quality accreditations.
