 “It’s definitely helped with the management of batch and expiry dated products. Now when we bring our products in, we push them through OrderWise so we can accurately record the batch numbers and best before dates. The way the system will always pick the product with the shortest shelf life, which obviously helps us with our stock rotation.”
