GlobalBake, New Zealand, and Datapax Inc., Phoenix, formed a joint venture to provide enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions for the North American food manufacturing sector. “We believe there is considerable opportunity in the food sector for purpose-built solutions,” said Kerry Glynn, president, GlobalBake. “Solutions offered in the food manufacturing sector are typically horizontal business applications rather than purpose-built software products like those our joint venture will offer. GlobalBake and Datapax solutions offer customers the ability to gain greater control over their operations and use this to achieve efficiencies right through their business,” Glynn adds.
“Datapax customers will continue to enjoy highly responsive service and support with the added benefit of a broader solution set to select from as their business needs change,” said Tyson Philippi, president, Datapax.
