Liz Maher

I joined CORE Tech in 1995 and so began my relationship with the dairy industry. As a functional consultant I influenced the design and functionality of what is now one of our flagship products COREmilk. COREmilk was developed in partnership with dairy industry leaders in Ireland and the UK. The ever-evolving product uses the latest technology to capture, analyse and deliver critical information to both the milk processors and their suppliers

I have gained extensive knowledge of the dairy industry due to frequent engagement with the majority of co-ops in Ireland and have played a key role in consultancy and delivery of their projects. I enjoy the challenge of creating a vision for how new technology can continue to support the industry.

COREretail, and in particular the Specials Module, ensures that every non stocked item we purchase is either invoiced to a customer or prepayment has been received. This is vital where specials sales are 25% of our business. Additionally, we can see at a glance the status of any item as it routes through the system.
