Erwin Bisschoff, Supply Chain Director at Zijerveld explains their current challenge: “There is a great need for a solution to manage our product information at Zijerveld. We are dealing with a large amount of data processing.” “Our current systems offer limited functionalities to manage our growing product information efficiently. A lot of time is lost in the processing of new and related products. We also deal with legal frameworks and mandatory product information concerning allergens. This information must be available in several languages and made country-specific.  With CONTENTSERV, we expect to be able to process product information much more quickly and easily, so that we can focus even more on growing the cheese category “, says Jan van Popering, Market Unit Manager Retail & Online at Zijerveld.
