Montague Selects Aptean ERP for Critical Fresh Produce Enterprise Management Systems

May 21, 2020

Australia’s Leading Fresh Produce Supplier Leverages Aptean Solution for Growth and Flexibility, Hosted on the Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central Platform and Implemented by Dialog

ALPHARETTA, GA, May 21, 2020 — Today, Aptean, a global provider of mission-critical enterprise software solutions, announced that Montague, Australia’s leading fresh produce supplier, has selected its ERP solution to provide critical fresh produce industry functionality—including grower accounting, traceability, consignments, farming and quality control. The ERP solution, designed specifically for fresh fruit and vegetable producers, will be hosted on the Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central platform. Implementation and project support will be provided by Aptean’s local authorized provider in Australia, Dialog Information Technology.

Since 1948, Montague has been working with Australia’s leading food manufacturers to store and distribute apples, pears, stone fruits and exotics, including household brands such as Jazz™ apples. As a fresh food grower, producer and services business that has touchpoints across the supply chain, Montague is constantly challenging its partners to achieve the best quality and excellence possible. Montague needed a business management solution to support this ethos and growth, and therefore chose the Aptean ERP via Dialog.

“Montague is always at the forefront of innovation, therefore, we needed a software solution that would facilitate our planned business growth, while offering the flexibility needed to adapt to our changing business model. We required a technology partner that is here to support us now, as well as one that can meet our needs as we expand into the future. Most importantly, the solution had to address the unique requirements of the fresh food supply chain industry. We are confident we have found that solution in the partnership with Aptean ERP and Dialog, which will deliver the latest end-to-end Microsoft-based, global fresh food solution in the market,” says Michael Foreshew, Chief Information Officer at Montague.

Working with Dialog, Montague will deploy the Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central based solution as well as the Aptean ERP, hosted locally and integrated with their existing paperless WMS solution. Aptean’s ERP will provide Montague with a full end-to-end, future-proof fresh produce business management solution that reaches from the farm to the end customer in a single database—delivering real-time, traceable data that is accessible from anywhere, anytime—on a Microsoft platform that is always up to date.

Duane George, Chief Product Officer at Aptean, says, “We are thrilled to welcome Montague to our user community in Australia and New Zealand. Our expanding customer community is a testament to the close working relationship and teamwork between our company and valued partner, Dialog. We very much look forward to this partnership, delivering Montague a solution that will help them realize the significant business benefits provided by our Aptean ERP solution, now and through their future expansion.”
