"Emydex replaced Oliver Carty’s existing Scanvaegt system with Emydex's Processing & Packing software, adding new production management functionality including line yield reporting and packing against production orders. “When dealing with the retail sector it is vitally important to be able to give our customers the information they are looking for and to do so quickly. Since we moved to Emydex we have been able to provide an array of information to ourselves and our customers in a matter of seconds. Also the time taken to scan an order has halved” Justin Lennon Key Accounts Manager, Oliver Carty Ltd
