Case Study: Golden Farms replaces Oracle with Microsoft Dynamics NAV

Supplier: Fenwick Software
18 January, 2011

Turi Foods is a family owned business providing poultry to large supermarkets and fast food outlets, trading under the La Ionica brand.

In 2009, Turi Foods acquired the Victorian processing operations of Steggles and re-branded it Golden Farms. The existing operation used an Oracle ERP system which was too expensive for a single facility to maintain. Turi Foods had a three-month grace period in which to find an alternative. 

Fenwick Software deployed Microsoft Dynamics NAV at Golden Farms after a ten week implementation. This included EDI interfaces to major customers and a bespoke outbound call centre application. 

The benefits have been significant:

  • Reduced license costs
  • Increased ability to make system changes quickly
  • More productive finance staff
  • Better company-wide integration

"I estimate we have saved about $100,000 by being able to get a replacement system in and working before the existing license expired." Chris Turner, CEO, Turi Foods
