“We rolled out the standard flavour of the Emydex Retail Solution initially, but over time we have made changes to the system in order to suit the specific ways we work in Dunbia, and the individual demands of our customers. In terms of benefits, the system gave us immediate control over systems and reporting. Using Emydex, back office staff had instantaneous access to far more accurate reporting of effciencies, yields and giveaways and operator performance” Jay Adams - IT Service Delivery Manager - Dunbia (Preston)
