"The ACSS Aquarius system has enabled us to pack much more efficiently, to control waste and saves time in the factory. Without the system we would not be able to process the same number of orders we do at present."

Edward Lakeman -  Director, Ocean Fish (Vistgate Ltd)

"When we decided to install a software system to replace our paper-based one, we chose ACSS because their system offered the best solution for our needs.

By installing the system, we have seen several major benefits; packing has become quicker and more efficient; we have a large reduction in errors; invoicing is faster and more accurate; vans are loaded correctly with no boxes missed. This has resulted in a significant reduction in labour charges.

I would urge anyone still using paper-based systems to install an ACSS system."

Johnny Godden - Owner, Flying Fish Seafood Company

"Without question the best decision we ever made was going with ACSS Ltd.

The ongoing support is first class, any adjustments we need to fit into the fast changing nature of our business is met with the best solutions in a timely manner.

The huge difference ACSS's system made to our operating efficiency could never of been anticipated - just brilliant."

William Crooks - Director, Dennis Crooks Fish Merchants

"BNFS has been using the ACSS system since 2015 and it has completely transformed our business in terms of efficiency and productivity. It has fast become a crucial tool for the management of Purchases and stock control.

Data reports that ACSS generates has given our business a unique insight into the sales figures with the touch of a button. The support ACSS provides is absolutely outstanding which is key when you have a bespoke system like this. I really can't thank them enough. Highly recommended!"

Kier Foster - Director, Brighton and Newhaven Fish

"The bespoke system that ACSS installed helped us through a tough yet very important stage in our company development. They created a more efficient system that suited our needs, from which we've already seen the benefits in terms of efficency savings and scope for growth. We're now in a position to further increase our client base and this wouldn't have been possible without the ACSS system. Due to their hard work and dedication, we now look forward to a more successful future."

Matthew Stevens - Managing Director, Matthew Stevens & Sons

"The system has simplified our business immeasurably. We used to manually hand-write everything. Now each box is weighed and labelled through the computerised weighing system and orders are imported and invoiced through our accounts system. This has saved lots of time and mistakes that the hand-written system used to create. We would definitely recommend ACSS to anyone who requires a system that is flexible and works. The system is easy to use and the levels of support are perfect. We have used this system for 10 years now and would never go back to using paper systems."

Stephen James - Partner, W. James & Sons

"Having worked with ACSS since it started, and some of its staff members for over 10 years now, the level of support and commitment has been exceptional. The tailored factory solutions have helped us grow and move forward as a company. The hardware and software has always been well received by our staff and we look forward to working with them, and their continued support over the coming years. I would have no hesitation in recommending ACSS Ltd to anyone in the future"

Mark Greet - Managing Director, Falfish

aquarius logo ACSS fish factory systems encompass a range of software written especially for the fish industry. Designed to minimise data entry and maximise throughput, customers who use our fish factory systems report up to 50% labour saving when compared to using a manual system to complete similar tasks.

Our factory system enables fish coming in to be easily identified and weighed into stock. Goods in can also be linked to the purchase order processing system. This gives real time raw material stock management, by allocating unique barcodes which also provide the initial basis for your fish traceability system. As the raw materials enter the factory the unique barcode is scanned, providing valuable information about the work in progress.

Orders are entered on to your office PC, either manually, or via EDI. These sales orders then appear on your factory touch screen for weighing. The system allows you to weigh the same order on two or more terminals if necessary.

Operators can prep and pack products according to instructions and view quality control pictures on the screen. As each box is packed, the system produces a label, and captures the weight for invoicing. When your products are ready for despatch, a hand-held scanner will give all order information against each customer. Operatives can scan each element of the order, feeding real time information back to your office system, detailing the progress of each order.

Simplicity. Peace of Mind. Aquarius.

By installing the Aquarius fish factory system you no longer have to put up with:

handwritten box labels

manually prepared invoices

boxes put on the wrong transport

lost orders

errors on data entry
