New software solution for fresh produce management
Affinitus has announced the launch of a new software solution for fruit and vegetable growers and distributors, Agrilogik, which has been designed to make the management of fresh produce information straightforward, from quality control data to the latest harvest updates.
The culmination of three years’ work, Agrilogik follows on from the success of Affinitus’ established software systems, Freshware and Chefserve, but with even more of an emphasis on bringing the information required by producers and exporters together into one place.
The system was launched during Affinitus’ appearance at the London Produce Show on 4 June, the first time the company has participated in a trade event as an exhibitor.
Specifically designed for the technical departments of fresh produce companies, Agrilogik is aimed at improving the management of information necessary when handling fresh produce, such as quality assurance and the documentation kept alongside this, and quality control.
The software further includes the latest labour force management regulations as required by law, and has been designed for use with field-based handheld devices – such as tablets – that can be used to capture up-to-date harvest information.
This means, said Affinitus managing director Paul Hardy, that growers can benefit from access to accurate crop and yield forecasts each season, ensuring accurate planning and in the process helping avoid unnecessary delays or order duplications – vital when meeting retailer demands.

Singapore fresh produce distributor saves thousands with new ERP software
Oracle NetSuite, a provider of cloud-based financials / ERP, HR, Professional Services Automation (PSA) and omnichannel commerce software suites, announced today that SunMoon Food Company Limited (SunMoon), a global distributor of fruit and food products, has deployed NetSuite OneWorld.
SunMoon distributes a wide range of fresh and sustainable produce, from frozen durians to ready-to-eat sweet corn and deployed NetSuite OneWorld to support its global growth, enabling increased overall productivity and efficiency. In just five months, NetSuite OneWorld facilitated 900 transactions, having saved SunMoon 150 hours and an estimated S$20,000 ($14,680 USD).
Live in April 2017, SunMoon is leveraging OneWorld for financials, inventory and order management, financial consolidation across three subsidiaries in China, Indonesia, and the US, and multicurrency transactions in 11 different currencies – Australian, Canadian, Hong Kong, Singapore and US Dollar, Euro, Indonesian Rupiah, Malaysian Ringgit, Renminbi and Thai Baht. It also supports, English, Chinese, and Bahasa Malay.
Prior to deploying NetSuite OneWorld, SunMoon primarily used emails to correspond with its farmers, suppliers and customers for stock taking, order management, invoicing and billing. This required significant manual coordination, making it extremely difficult to track orders and compare quotes, greatly impacting productivity and the company’s growth potential.
NetSuite OneWorld enables SunMoon’s suppliers to enter expiry dates, packaging sizes and other details from any internet-connected device into the cloud-based system. Based on this information, SunMoon can more easily create a quote for its customers, which they can accept with just one click. NetSuite OneWorld then automatically sends a PO to farmers and generates an invoice once the order has been fulfilled.
“ERP software from fresh produce branch instead of IT”
The Irish company Keelings has a 90-year history in the cultivation and trade of fruit and vegetables. Based on the wishes the company had to optimise and automate their business processes, the software branch Keelings Solutions was established five years ago.
Caroline Keeling and Rick Rebergen
Rick Rebergen, who has 18 years of experience in the marketing and sales of fresh produce software, has been appointed Business Improvement Manager to transfer his knowledge and that of Keelings to the rest of the market, initially focusing on the Benelux and Germany. “The company Keelings trades in 42 countries, and therefore knows which requirements good software should meet. The software is built based on exact demands and wishes from the fresh produce branch, and not from an IT point of view. That makes this package unique!”
“Keelings Solutions’ approach is also renewing. With our IBR (Initial Business Revue) tool, we can review the company's internal organisation on request, and we can analysis this by listing the weak points combined with recommendations to improve these. This leads to specific recommendations to using the software, which we clearly express in an amount to reach an ROI (Return on Investment). There are a number of critical process indicators that can differ per company and per country, and that way, we can approach the market in the most professional manner possible. That is an absolute advantage in this industry,” Rick says.
Proactive instead of reactive
“Another definite advantage is that we can make predictions in our system. That's not integrated now in current ERP software systems. Much is analysed afterwards now, but the software from Keelings Solutions is proactive rather than reactive. For example, results can be decided and guarded in advance, instead of seeing the result afterwards. After all, it’s all about profitability,” Rick says. “This ERP package, called Keelings Business Solutions (KBS) is a complete solution, and can therefore be used by importers, exporters, wholesalers, production (sorting and packing) and storage and transfer companies. In the Netherlands, early adapters like Roveg and Jaguar are already using the software from Keelings Solutions.”
“The experience of Keelings in cultivation, processing and trade can be seen in the software. We work out the practices of fresh produce companies with them, work that into an appropriate ERP system. Efficiency and flexibility in KBS are of an unprecedented level. Keelings has worked for years to bring automation to the highest possible level within their own company, and now wants to share that with the market. For that, we offer a guaranteed implementation throughput time of three months, and we can support companies structurally during the change that’ll occur during the implementation of other ERP software. We offer a completely standardised solution, but the product will never be finished because the market is continually changing. But those changes will eventually also lead to improved software,” Rick says.
“Our Irish parent organisation has an amazing history, and has 2,100 employees nowadays. We would like to invite interested people to experience the 'Keelings Experience' in Dublin, where we’d like to show our 90-year industry experience in growing, processing, logistics, quality control, production (24x7), WMS, global trade and software. I think it’s a major challenge to share my experience with the organisation, and I’m completely driven to make this a success. I am therefore convinced that we’ll further build the automation software via the Benelux and Germany to a global fresh produce sector,” the Business Improvement Manager concludes.
