“Working closely with the Optimise staff, a solution to meet the exacting requirements of the Food service division was drawn up, executed and implemented with a great deal of success.

The Prodigy Food Services software has been designed in collaboration with food services suppliers to meet the requirements of this demanding sector which incorporates wholesale and delivered produce.
The software incorporates multiple pricing structures allowing for notional, banded uplift, customer special pricing and discounts. Orders can be taken by phone, FAX or multiple formats of EDI (Electronic Data Interchange). Standing orders can also be configured.
Products are set as bulk and split, with splits being sold in kilos or by number. If scales are incorporated, this removes the ‘giveway’ factor.
Real-time stock control allows for full traceability.
The wholesale suppliers software offers all the above, with the addition of handheld devices to simplify and assist the buying process.

The Prodigy Trading system is a fully configurable module which was designed originally for those companies who traded potatoes but is also ideally suited to those who trade in onions, root vegetables and grain.
Designed to allow back-to-back matching of purchase and sale of produce in an interactive environment and to clarify the trading process with instant screen updates across all trades.
Recent additions now allow for grower groups to be catered for with new screens and procedures for deductions to be automatically applied and detailed on members’ invoices.
The Prodigy Contractors module has been specifically designed in conjunction with the Construction Industry for the control of costs associated with a contract and is fully integrated with our financial suite.
The Contractors system is aimed at those companies who provide part or complete construction services in the industries and has been expanded by the introduction of a web Materials Request System for site managers and an HMRC certified CIS reporting system.
The system also incorporates a sub-contractors module, a dedicated purchase order system and a sales ledger specifically designed for contractors.
Flowers & Bulbs
The Prodigy Flowers & Bulbs system is a derivative of one of our Fresh Produce systems that first came into being in the late 1980s and was written for suppliers of fruit and vegetables to the supermarkets. One of the country’s leading providers of flowers and bulbs realised its potential and adopted the core functionality with bespoke modifications to make the software truly fit for purpose.
The flowers and bulbs sector of the industry has specific requirements for the export of purchased and sales of bulbs from the UK which is designed to limit or even eradicate the spread of diseases and cross-contamination between varieties and geographical areas.
