Customer success story - Burts Potato Chips

Customer success story - Burts Potato Chips

With aspirations to grow the business to £20m over the next three years, Burts Potato Chips needed a system that would provide integrated finance, production and stock management.

Its Sage Line 200 system couldn’t provide the level of analysis and management reporting that Burts required, forcing it to use a range of Excel spreadsheets and manual processes to overcome some of the short falls.
