It’s been an exciting and busy time over the past couple of months!
In April we released Abel Version 6.0, featuring Abel’s new User Interface along with plenty of new functionality. We’ve had great feedback so far from customers who have already upgraded and Rik will be showcasing Version 6.0 in our July blog.
In May I announced that Abel Solutions and Abel Software were merging. Since then we have been busy with all the practicalities that a merger brings. We are confident that the merger will streamline and strengthen our ERP software and service offerings, delivering greater product innovation and accelerating Abel’s growth in the highly competitive mid-size ERP market.
In the meantime, it’s been business as usual and I am pleased to welcome three new customers into the Abel community:
All Guard Safety Equipment
For more than 20 years All Guard Safety has been supplying New Zealand companies with compliant personal protection equipment (PPE) and workwear products. Based in Auckland and offering nationwide support, their mission is to make New Zealand a safer place. Their products include: dangerous goods storage, environmental control spill kits, hi-visibility clothing, respiratory products, footwear, safety signage and many more.
Amrita Nutrition provides contract manufacturing and packing services for dairy powder products and also for honey. They carry both MPI and China CNCA registration. Their purpose built Auckland facility runs multiple state-of-art production lines for dairy powder products including dairy powder formulation, blending, canning, pouch and sachet packing, and hardgel encapsulation. Their Gisborne factory provides a one stop solution for honey sourcing, extracting and packing.
Hatuma Lime Company
Based in central Hawkes Bay, Hatuma Lime was established in 1932. 86 years on, this third generation family business makes fertilizer products for farms and gardens. Hatuma Dicalcic Phosphate® , their flagship product for over 50 years, is a non water-soluble and plant available phosphate for farm pasture and is also used in Hatuma’s garden fertilizer blends. With less run-off, it keeps the goodness on the soil for longer, making it both cost-effective and better for the environment.
Three very interesting and diverse businesses, all using Abel ERP.
And finally, congratulations to Abel customer and pet food manufacturer Ziwi Limited, who recently won Best Medium to Large Business Exporter at the 2018 Zespri BOP ExportNZ Awards. Read more on the Ziwi blog.
Until next time.
