"We realize that in the future we must increasingly manage based on data," says Sander van der Vaart, CEO of F.N. Kempen. "This requires control over and insight into the business processes. We gain this with Agriware, so that you can, for example, have current insights into your inventory for both the short and long term."

Van der Vaart points out that Agriware is based on Microsoft Dynamics. "So behind the system is a globally operating, powerful partner/developer. That makes Agriware strong and future-proof, just like Microsoft Word when it comes to word processing. Ultimately, I would like all our IT to function in one environment, with all IT functions linked together. We are not there yet, but to achieve that in a few years, you need to be on a global standard now. Agriware offers that world standard.

Moreover, Agriware has been developed with the big players in the sector. We can reap the benefits of that."

Expertise

F.N. Kempen deliberately chooses to apply as many standard solutions as possible. Van der Vaart says, "Custom work is wonderful, but if you opt for custom solutions that make updates expensive, your software quickly becomes outdated. Mprise Agriware has developed a software package for us within this framework, which gives us maximum insight into our processes and our output. Mprise Agriware employs staff with diverse skills. One is very good at devising standard solutions, while another is strong in innovative thinking. You need both, but they must understand how a company like ours operates. In this area, Mprise Agriware has really made progress in recent years."
