Avanquest UK installs Captaris RightFax at PepsiCo UK

Avanquest UK, supplier of leading-edge, best of breed corporate solutions for the enterprise has installed Captaris RightFax at PepsiCo to complement their centralised purchasing system, allowing the automatic production of purchase orders.

PepsiCo is a world leader in convenience foods and beverages with brands available in nearly 200 countries and territories. PepsiCo UK & Ireland (PIUK) is part of PepsiCo International and is the combination of four of the UK’s best known brands - Walkers, Pepsi, Tropicana and Quaker.

Ian Shields, Architecture Controller at PIUK comments “The RightFax software has been integral in enabling us to implement our centralised purchasing system, with minimal setup and customisation to the core ERP Package. It has reduced workload for specific buyers and sites, as they no longer have to print the Purchase Orders in order to fax manually. The Purchasing/Buying team and individual manufacturing sites ordering raw materials, have experienced significant benefits as the operation is now achieved via a single system with all faxes being sent centrally and fully audited.”

Chris Thompson, Managing Director of Avanquest UK says “LAN based fax management plays a crucial role in today’s information delivery infrastructure. Avanquest can report continued growth in RightFax installations, from both new and existing customers. Extensive feedback from both our Resellers and customers means we are able to deliver the most robust enterprise fax and e-document delivery solution yet created which leads to increased returns on IT investments for our customers.”
