Akboria, a prominent corporate group with a century-long history in northern Bangladesh, has successfully served its customers with a diverse array of food and bakery products.
Recognizing the need to modernize and stay competitive, Akboria embarked on a journey to replace its age-old manual and paper-based systems with an advanced, user-friendly ERP solution.
