The award-winning DocuWare document management system has helped businesses and organisations across almost every sector of service and industry. This post is part of our “Highlights” series, where we look at particular use cases in different areas of business. This week it is the turn of the farming industry.

A Little About The Client

This client is one of the largest family-owned farming businesses in the United Kingdom. They specialise in pig production, with 8000 healthy nucleus and multiplication sows supplying breeding stock. They have over 3000 commercial sows producing pigs for slaughter, which combined with pig production operation, markets over 100,000 pigs per year to their customers and processors.

They produce a high percentage of rations through their mill and mix feed operation. This allows them to incorporate their own high-quality home-grown wheat, barley and rye: which increases their efficiency and improves their carbon footprint.

The client invests in high-quality pig rearing buildings nationwide. They’re also supporters of third-party investors to invest in pig finishing buildings. Their partner’s facilities help them accelerate improvements in their business efficiency, along with maintaining excellent levels of animal welfare.

Their focus is on their Reputation, Innovation and Training. The client prides themselves on their strong emphasis on people and quality, which relates to their core values: excellence in reputation, science-based innovation and well trained and effective people.


So how do they use DocuWare?

The key area is the processing of AP invoices, streamlining the way these are matched to their ERP system, work-flowing documents for approval according to specific matrices and storing for instant retrieval.
