Keelings Knowledge ERP expands its sales and marketing team and takes a close look at the German market. The aim is to make the ERP software solution specially tailored to the fruit and vegetable industry, well known in Germany’s fresh produce sector.
Caroline Keeling, Managing Director of the Dublin-based Keelings Fresh Produce Company, and Rick Rebergen, Business Improvement Manager at the industry specific software company Keelings Knowledge, have employed Christian Johnson, an experienced sales and marketing executive for the German market. Born in Bremen, he has mainly been with the Corporate World in recent years. “I’m excited about the new opportunity,” says Johnson. “It’s great to work for a family-run business that not only looks back on a more than 90-year history, but has also integrated all of its fruit and vegetable expertise into such a successful ERP solution. Tradition, values and innovation go simply hand in hand.”
Keelings Knowledge are already a name in the Dutch fresh produce sector with their software, but also companies in the UK, Ireland, France and China have chosen Keelings’ ERP solution, which is built for the fruit and vegetable industry. It can be used efficiently and flexible in all relevant business areas to meet the specific needs of the company, e.g. in purchasing and sales, logistics, warehouse management and cost control. “This promotes quality and profitability and creates a solid foundation for strong growth,”.
With Johnson on board, the German market is now increasingly being brought into focus. Together with his colleague Rick Rebergen, he will visit Germany regularly for client engagement. He will travel to Düsseldorf for the German Fruit and Vegetable Congress in September 2018 in order to promote the software and to meet with colleagues from the fresh produce sector on site. “I’m really looking forward to this event, because it is specifically for the fruit and vegetable industry and it will be a great opportunity for us to share industry trends and challenges,” says Johnson.
