The August issue of Business Chief Asia is now live!
Welcome to the August issue of Business Chief Asia!
Dole International is one of the largest fruit producers in the world, and it is currently undergoing a procurement transformation that will give it an even sharper competitive edge.

“Our data was very segmented, mostly very manual and driven by different legacy systems,” he says. “One of the first things that we decided, which has already been rolled out, is a single ERP from agri to marketing – end to end. That will enable us to capture and make visible data on what we are doing, where we are spending and what we are and aren’t doing correctly.”
Elsewhere, Dmitri Chen, COO at Dell EMC, discusses how the technological solutions provider is able to tailor its extensive offering across Asia to maximise the efficacy of digital transformations.
