The highly acclaimed Freshly Frozen Foods® is a pioneer operating group within the Al Nekhrah® Group of companies, established over 20 years ago. The company has been synonymous with quality and affordability since then. FFF is headquartered in Dubai, providing safe, quality foods at affordable prices. Spread over 70,000 sq ft. factory with multiple processing lines dedicated to meat, seafood, poultry, and ready meals, Freshly Frozen Foods turns around an annual production of 9,000 metric tons with exports to the USA, Europe, Middle East, Africa, and Asia. The group has benchmarked its resources and products for its competition. It was the first to design, construct, and equip a state-of-the art factory in Dubai that can provide services and products on par with the best in the global market yet keep in touch with local values. The company introduced cutting edge technology and internal R&D to create and test new ideas, and it slotted itself to become one of the fastest growing frozen food companies worldwide and within the region.
Freshly Frozen Foods proudly boasts more than 200 employees. They are equipped with all latest technologies, laboratories to carry out research work, and other resources that assist in releasing the best products and services in their range. Their operational support structure needed updating to address their current and ever-expanding business processes carried out at their state-of-the-art office facilities in UAE. They needed a comprehensive digital ECM solution to encompass the input and processing of between 3,000 to 5,000 documents a day. These files are designated by in excess of sixty document types, generated, and received by thirteen different departments in four locations.

- Being able to reference all applicable documents relating to a specific business process, especially in the billing and payments department
