By Deborah Austin Boar's Head Provisions -- a leading national provider/maker of meats, cheeses, condiments, and other deli products -- has signed an agreement with Ross Systems Inc. for services including supply-chain and e-business solutions. After extensive evaluation, Boar's Head chose the Ross iRenaissance Enterprise Solution to support enterprise resource planning (ERP) and e-commerce -- addressing the firm's specific requirements and meat-processing industry requirements. The solution should generate greatest impact in areas of brand protection through support of hazard analysis and critical control-point quality initiatives, distributor support systems, and improved business intelligence, says Boar's Head CIO David Bowes. Privately held 95-year-old Boar's Head Provisions, headquartered in Brooklyn, N.Y., does not divulge revenue information.
