Corrib Foods Case Study


Corrib Food Products is a well established food distribution company who are committed to providing quality safe food to all their customers across Ireland. They have over 20 Business execs on the road travelling to the length and breadth of Ireland servicing an ever growing customer base. The business execs all use Blackberry’s for Email, Calendaring and as a business phone. Colm Lawless recognised that with Blackberry Enterprise Server there was an opportunity to extend the business offering to his employees in a cost effective and business efficient manner, using the underlying technology of BES to achieve a more expansive business offering.

At B-Connected we discussed the challenges to the Corrib business execs whilst they are travelling, with limited access to data in the office whilst on the road coupled with the need for accurate up to date information the challenges were immense. B-Connected offered a solution based on our award winning office on the go product suite allowing the Execs to fully access Proposals, Quotations, Orders from any location through their Blackberry. In fact the Execs can access all Office documents, PDF’s, WordPerfect, .RTF, .CSV, OpenOffice files, zip archives, fax and photos. More importantly the Execs can then immediately fax or email the information directly to their client’s from the Blackberry device improving customer service and sales response times immensely. They can also print the documents to a local HP Bluetooth printer they conveniently carry with them or to a network printer back at the office.

“The solution has been an immediate success for us and has transformed how we use the Blackberry technology, the B-Connected solution truly is a mobile solution with real business benefits “, according to Colm Lawless General Manager Corrib Foods. “B-Connected were with me every step of the way, they were enthusiastic, responsive and reactive in every way, I have every reason to recommend them to any prospective client ”.
