Lionbridge LINKFRESH is a software and IT consultancy organisation with extensive fresh food supply chain expertise.

Lionbridge Technologies is a recognised global industry leader in translation and localisation services, which is measured by its market share, total revenue, thought leadership, and client feedback. We invited Stephanie Carone, Sales & Marketing Operations Manager, to talk to us about staying one step ahead in the digital age.

LINKFRESH is a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner and a Global Independent Software Vendor (ISV). LINKFRESH serves an International customer base from its offices in Cambridge, UK and California, USA.

Headquartered in Waltham, Massachusetts, with more than 5,500 employees in 45 offices in 26 countries, the firm’s global footprint ensures that a Lionbridge office is open and available for clients at any time of day. This global capacity enables Lionbridge to meet any client’s needs.

LINKFRESH ERP customers include food organisations such as Produce World Group, Noble Foods, L H Gray & Sons (Canada), Farmcare Trading Ltd, The Giumarra Companies (USA), Pacific America Fish Company (USA), Wholesum Harvest (USA), Grandma Singletons, Q V Foods, Hilton Foods Ireland, Vestey Foods Group, Minor Weir & Willis, G’s Fresh. Newly appointed LINKFRESH Sales Director, Paul Roebuck said he has a vision for LINKFRESH to become the partner of choice for the food industry. “LINKFRESH are the food ERP people. The company understands the challenges of growers, suppliers and distributors and delivers software rich in unique functionality only necessary for the food industry. Because products are developed and refined in partnership with customers using direct industry feedback on requirements – the software meets their very specific and specialist needs. As a global company that speaks the language of food and fresh produce, the industry already sees LINKFRESH as the food experts.” The need for food suppliers to ensure that their IT systems are not outdated has never been more urgent. 2016 has already seen a number of high profile food recalls such as Mars and Weetabix, both of whom had to recall products in February due to fears over contamination. Cuttingedge solutions, which allow produce to be traced from ‘farm to fork’ in real time, are demanded by a rising number of retailers, driven themselves by consumer demand. Supply chain management software solutions, such as LINKFRESH ERP can provide suppliers with data on where ingredients have come from, how they are stored, which equipment and staff were involved at each stage of the supply chain and quality control test results. Looking forward for the remainder of 2016, and beyond, the future looks very bright. LINKFRESH will continue to develop and expand its food industry-specific software portfolio further, bringing innovative and relevant software solutions to market which will be essential as the food industry raises the bar on traceability and supply chain transparency.

“We specialise in dynamic and agile translation and localisation solutions for software, apps, product documentation, marketing materials, videos, training content, and websites to ensure a consistent user experience for multilingual needs,” explains Stephanie Carone, Sales & Marketing Operations Manager at Lionbridge. “Our accurate human translations take context, culture, and perception into account, and we provide quality translations, regardless of volume, thanks to our wide network of highly educated translators. We’ve been in business for 20 years and over 800 leading global companies trust our expertise to satisfy their wide variety of translation needs.” The world is speeding up and clients expect to be able to order translation 24/7 and receive professional translations back within 24 hours. Lionbridge was ahead of this trend and created Lionbridge onDemand three years ago to satisfy the need for high quality, rapid translation. In the past year alone, 667 companies shifted their translation needs to Lionbridge onDemand. Another reason for the success of Lionbridge onDemand is the sharp focus on faithfully representing a client’s brand across languages and locales. “Lionbridge’s unique Global Brand Voice approach codifies the elements of a brand and aligns in-country client personnel’s preferences with those of the professional linguists. This approach leads to faithful brand representation and high satisfaction among client in-market staff.” Recently, Lionbridge onDemand was awarded the prestigious title of 2016 Technology Innovator, as voted by CV Magazine. “We are pleased to be honoured with the 2016 Technology Innovator Award. We have placed significant effort into Lionbridge onDemand and endeavoured to make it the most innovative, streamlined translation portal on the market today. CV Magazine honouring us with this award solidifies our efforts have all been worthwhile.”
