Countrywide is Australia’s largest group of independently owned wholesale Distributors within the Food Services industry, and Fenwick was proud to be invited to their inaugural Trade Show held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.
The Trade Show offered Countrywide members a chance to deal amongst themselves, whilst also offering the opportunity to service providers, such as Fenwick, to display their offerings tailored to the Food Services industry.
Fenwick hosted a booth at the Countrywide Trade show which highlighted the benefits of Dynamics 365 Business Central and Dynamics NAV for the food services industry.
Fenwick hosted a booth which outlined the benefits that Dynamics 365 Business Central and Dynamics NAV can have for many of these Countrywide members. We were also able to catch up with a few of our clients who visited our booth.
Headlining our stand was a fantastic display of Mobile WMS by Tasklet factory—a ready-to-use, mobile warehouse scanning solution for Dynamics 365 Business Central and Dynamics NAV. Jesse Clarnette, our resident scanning expert and barcoding enthusiast (if you don’t believe me, check out his blog post on this topic) developed a user interactive demo to allow attendees to receipt a Purchase Order via Honeywell scanners running Mobile WMS, which highlighted how easy it is to use a scanner to perform an action common across many of the Countrywide members in attendance. The Mentos bowl was also a resounding hit with an estimated 100 Mentos consumed based on the wrapper count during clean up.
It was a great opportunity for Fenwick to meet prospective clients, as well as to speak with other service providers in the Food Services industry to keep up to date with what the market currently offers.
Over the course of the day, Countrywide members wrote $114 million worth of orders which smashed the target of $90 million for the day, it’s safe to say the place was buzzing with activity.
Hopefully you will run into Fenwick at a Trade Show near you soon!
