A Wealth of Expertise and Experience

Overview – The Paragon Dairy Management System was developed from an original concept and process used by Geoff and Harvey Millard in their own dairy business, Millard Bros Dairymen.

Where It All Began

Millard Bros Dairymen

After the death of their father, brothers Geoff and Harvey Millard took over the family dairy business, building it up to include several rounds in the Bolton, Farnworth and Whitefield areas.  By the late 1980s Geoff Millard was finding ways to computerise the rounds and improve efficiency.  It soon became clear that there was little software available (or affordable) specifically for milkmen, so it was a natural progression to develop a system for the industry Geoff knew inside out. Dairydata was created as a basic package of record keeping and billing, tailored for milkmen. 

Borsdane Wood Ltd

Borsdane Wood was principally formed by Chris Millard, Geoff’s son, who has also had lots of experience of helping his father on the milkrounds – but found his forte was actually developing the office systems for the business.  He went on to university and is now an experienced programming consultant.  He formed Borsdane Wood Ltd and worked on several major projects across a range of sectors, eventually returning to the basic principles of Dairydata.  He developed this into a new and fully formed programme called The Paragon Rounds Management System, adaptable to any size of business and able to integrate with a range of handheld devices, operating platforms and other software.

More Than Just A Family Business

Chris now leads our team of expert programmers and developers, continually upgrading and improving the system.  Geoff leads the sales team, uniquely able to speak from an experienced viewpoint as a dairyman himself.  He travels all over the country to demonstrate the Paragon Dairydata package, which can now include a module called YourMOO (Your Milk Order Online) to enable you to link the system to a portal for your customers to order and pay online. 

Geoff is also in demand as an expert speaker and has given presentations not only on our own systems but the dairy industry in general, as well as IT and business development – and has been known to entertain and delight as an after dinner speaker on the more humorous aspects of his life as a milkman.
