This SAP Business One case study focusses on Evolution foods, a prominent and highly successful British food retailer, who has been using SAP Business One to support its dynamic growth. SAP Business One helps the Company with compliance and traceability, as well as supporting growth
SAP Business One provides a powerful accounting solution for the more than 40,000 SAP customers around the world who use it daily. But even accounting solutions need an upgrade from time to time. Signum Solutions offered several add-on products, including one from CompuTec, to help Evolution Foods keep pace with a heightened regulatory environment.
Evolution Foods, a UK-based food manufacturer, tripled turnover within 2.5 years while growing into one of the UK’s fastest growing food producers.
The company approached Signum Solutions to help them better manage their operations, which led to an increased workforce and even more ambitious targets. However, Evolution found that its existing systems were unable to support this continued growth and decided it was time for a change.
“We have no intention of staying where we are and can see that SAP Business One will help us to expand even further”
Mike Alexander, Financial Controller at Evolution Foods
The brief was clear: evolution foods needed a business management system that would enable them to cope with their rapid growth. They had lots of products and orders, some of which were only small, so the complexity and security of the system were paramount.
The business needed a system that would provide compliance with industry-specific food safety legislation, but it also wanted a solution that could adapt to its growing business.
When Evolution Foods came to us looking for assistance in moving their business systems to SAP Business One, our first thoughts were how ProcessForce would fit into their set up. We soon discovered that SAP Business One with ProcessForce could offer just what they wanted, but more importantly needed.
They needed a system that could track its production standards, products, and processes to ensure each customer was catered for.
SAP Business One along with ProcessForce from CompuTec provided the enterprise resource planning (ERP) capabilities Evolution Foods needed to track its rapid growth to customers, but it also provided the flexibility to support future growth.
