Building a robust and highly efficient processing operation has been key to OPCFL’s success. With a competitive advantage and industry excellence awards to be proud of, OPCFL operates a very successful business.
OPCFL uses Pricom to for quote management, packhouse management and inventory management to gain efficiencies. Accounting functions of general ledger, debtors and creditors allow the business to be highly efficient. The Pricom software provides the following features:
Recently we installed the OPCFL packline software into a second site that packs on contract to OPCFL. The data from this second site automatically feeds to the central Pricom server at OPCFL, allowing the data to be centrally processed. Pricom software’s flexibility for use in a multi-site environment allows for the deployment of Pricom in additional Aoteroa Fisheries Group sites in the future.
Pricom software has been at the core of the First Fresh operation for 30 years. In addition external systems and applications have been added to complement the Pricom system. First Fresh are now looking to merge their system functionality into a single platform to manage and store all data.

• More reliable and timely data.
• More automation based on pre-defined business rules.
• The flexibility to bend (or even break) those rules when necessary.
• Access only to the relevant company data staff need and no more.
