ACC "Milks" the benefits of CONNX

Overview

Associated Co-operative Creameries (ACC) was created in 1972 and is now one of the longest established dairy operations in the country. ACC has over 2,500 employees and an annual turnover of £1.2 billion and supplies some of the largest names in the country such as Somerfield, Morrisions, Netto and Co-op. The company boasts the most modern raw milk quality control and product testing facilities available, as well as one of the "most up to date dairy systems in the country"

The Business Challenge

Jonathan Farmer, Technical Development Analyst described their situation:
"ACC moved their financial application to a Client Server environment using SQL Server as the database. Our critical order processing and distribution applications still reside on VAX and Alpha systems with RMS data files. We needed a seamless way to keep both applications in sync without disrupting our business!"

The Solution

"We used CONNX for RMS provided by Generix with Visual Basic to develop a Client Server application to simultaneously update and maintain our RMS data files and SQL Server. We evaluated CONNX for RMS against our existing ODBC driver which we had encountered problems with performance, maintenance and support.

We found that CONNX is fast, secure, scaleable and easy to use. CONNX also proved to be effortless to set up, deploy and has performed very well by simply doing everything we expected it to."


Vendor Support

"Support from Generix has been excellent. Any issues have been resolved quickly and accurately. Whenever we have had any problems the support specialists have been easy to contact and proactive in making sure our questions were answered promptly".
