As sponsors for the 7th year in a row, Cedar Bay had a prominent presence at this year’s IFS UK User Group Conference, held recently at the Oxford Belfry Hotel, near Thame in Oxfordshire, from 21-23 November.


We welcomed many existing customers, friends and colleagues to our stand and were delighted to have some long-term customers present on our behalf. Paul Doswell (Head of IT, UK and Europe) at Kettle Foods talked about the journey with Cedar Bay, optimising their fast-moving warehouses using the Cedar Bay solution and Suman Mohammed, Project Manager at Flamingo Horticulture discussed the plans and schedule taking the company towards its imminent IFS Applications 9 re-implementation in partnership with the Cedar Bay consultancy team.


“The IFS UK User Group Conference is a wonderful opportunity to meet our customers and this year, it was great that Paul and Suman could take the time to share their experiences with everyone about the Kettle Foods and Flamingo projects, endorsing what we brought to their businesses and what we can bring to your business.” – Cedar Bay Managing Director, Roger Teagle


The experienced Cedar Bay team of Roger Teagle, Bruce Mills, Steve Barker, Ashling O’Connell, Kieran Foxley-Jones, Chris Rothery, Jo Rosser and Mishael Akleker, were available throughout the three days to keep IFS customers up-to-date with the latest technological advancements, software and product developments. Having recently launched charIOT, our very own ERP to business connector aimed at direct machine integration to support Industry 4.0 and IIoT (enabling ERP solutions to gather, interpret and use information from machines and devices), the IFS UK User Group Conference was the perfect occasion to show customers what charIOT can do and how it works. Visitors could also try their hand at our very own Cedar Bay Rubik’s Cube, or take a look at the lightweight foldaway bicycle, provided especially for the event by our customer, Prodrive, the motorsport and technology company based in Banbury.
