Tuna Giant selects WiseFish and MS Dynamics 365
FCF Co., Ltd, the Taiwanese seafood giant and one of the world largest tuna companies has selected WiseFish from Wise Solutions, as the ERP system for their affiliated production companies in the southwestern Pacific island nation of Papua New Guinea.
“This system is a revolution in terms of technology deployment in the PNG factories. The system provides us real time overview of the operation from end to end, tracking raw materials and finished goods as they are processed in the factories and manages the total operation finances, inventories, product traceability and more,” said Tony Costa, CIO of Bumble Bee Foods, who was instrumental in the selection of WiseFish for the project. FCF is the parent company of Bumble Bee Seafoods and owns and operates production facilities and entities around the world, that together form one of the top seafood producers and traders globally.
WiseFish is a leading technology solution for the seafood industry, developed by Wise Solutions in Iceland in close cooperation with Iceland’s advanced seafood industry, and deployed by multiple industry leaders all over the world.
“To implement an advanced system of this magnitude, complexity, and sophistication in a remote location like Papua New Guinea while the world is experiencing a global pandemic, is no easy task. We assembled a global team from FCF Taiwan, Bumble Bee Foods USA, South Seas Tuna Corporation PNG, Nambawan PNG, and WiseFish USA/Europe to work collaboratively on this industry leading solution. Despite the challenges presented with the pandemic and the requirement to perform all the project activities remotely, the team has done an outstanding job staying on track to implement the project as outlined with minimum impacts.” added Mr. Costa.
The goal is to build a company wide standardized solution that is built on best-in-class technology, provided by the leading experts in the field of seafood ERP.
