25 Changes the way we work The new system is having a far-reaching impact on Sanford staff in two main areas: The new system is having a far-reaching impact on Sanford staff in two main areas:  Staff accountability  Staff communication

26 Changes to the way we work Staff accountability Using the new system has moved more accountability for accurate data collection to production staff as they have to ensure that information is recorded correctly in Marel to enable it to then flow through to WiseFish accurately. Using the new system has moved more accountability for accurate data collection to production staff as they have to ensure that information is recorded correctly in Marel to enable it to then flow through to WiseFish accurately. In fact, the system, overall, places responsibility on all staff for data accuracy. In fact, the system, overall, places responsibility on all staff for data accuracy. Because the system is integrated, data can be used and entered at all levels of the company and if it is not correct it will impact right through the system.

29 Project Fish a success – but not without its challenges We are seeing strong benefits coming through in our use of the new system, but taking on Project Fish was not without its challenges. We are seeing strong benefits coming through in our use of the new system, but taking on Project Fish was not without its challenges. –The size and scope of the project, and hence the timeframe, was underestimated. –Although we were confident using the various systems as standalone systems and at single locations we underestimated the work required for the integration of all the systems across our entire group. –The commitment from the super users (one existing Sanford person from each part of our business) was much larger than contemplated and more backfilling of their roles was required.
