Continuing growth and success for Proteus Customer French UK Provisions

French UK Provisions has been supplying a range of favourite British and American food products to holidaymakers, carefully building the reputation of the "Rivera's English Grocer". Geoffrey Garnett’s supermarket business built a strong reputation amongst the French Rivera sailing set. People started phoning Geoffrey with advance orders for Welcoming Packs for their arrival, and business flourished.

Having recognised a growing demand, Geoffrey concluded he should move into wholesale, giving French UK Provisions the ability to supply the many supermarkets on the Rivera Coast with a select range of favourite British produce in order to satisfy the growing market. Having successfully penetrated the retail market in the South of France, the business has now established a key presence in many French Retail Chain outlets throughout the country, and has expanded their operation into Italy.

The company has been using the Proteus Financials, Stock and Inventory Control system for a number of years, and the popularity of the service Geoffrey provides for holiday makers has grown with the expansion.  The next stage of the growth strategy is to provide a Web Ordering/eCommerce system for the company and their growing clients.  French UK Provisions has selected the PROTEUS ® eCommerce and Web Engine solution. The solution is designed to enable authorised trade customers to enter orders for seamless processing by the PROTEUS® back office order and stock management system.

The system allows customers to enquire on the status of existing orders or perform enquiries over the Internet. 

The software solution will improve their management of deliveries to the stores throughout France, as well as the new growth area of the Swiss and Italian Alps, servicing the growing demands and tastes of Brits aboard.
