MTech Systems, a global supplier of software for poultry, pig and animal feed industry software provider, has reached agreement to supply Van Den Brink Poultry, the third-largest New Zealand chicken processor.

Under the agreement, MTech Systems will provide business advisory services over the next 12 months, along with integrated software covering Van Den Brink broiler growing operations on North and South Islands.

"The broiler software will provide real time management information, costing and volume forecasting while automating grower settlement payments and giving the business scheduling of live birds to its processing facilities," said Jim Johnston, director of MTech Systems Europe. 


"Following visits by Jim Johnston and Steve Parsons in February last year and again recently, we now have detailed plans covering areas for improvement across our whole business," said John Timms, executive general manager of Van Den Brink Poultry. "This has contributed to our very good business results for two years running.

"What's more, we conducted a comprehensive evaluation of MTech's software modules and are now implementing the livestock module and also evaluating their other systems with a view toward implementing them once our review is complete."
