Business’s are looking to reach new heights in terms of growth, but many find themselves stuck in the midst of operational complexities and challenges. Fosters Bakery is one such business; it had reached a stage where it was only limited by its own ability and imagination to grow its footprint and operations. However like other small and medium enterprises (SMEs), it hadn’t been able to break free from the shackles of its operational matters, which prevented it from specializing in core competencies and limiting potential growth opportunities.

Fosters Bakery is a high quality bakery manufacturer supplying high quality vegan and vegetarian bread and confectionery for food service. They needed to run their business with more efficiency, be able to compete with bigger food companies, and increase customer satisfaction.

With SAP Business One already implemented, Fosters had begun to feel they were not getting the most from the solution. Going into partnership with SAP business solutions partner Signum Solutions, Fosters aimed to find a way to drive business efficiency and increase profitability.

“Since Signum have come in they have really helped us come along – in a big way”

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.

SAP Business One Case Study: MRC – The Flava People

In this SAP Business One Case Study, we’ll take a look at how MRC; The Flava People implemented SAP Business One and ProcessForce to gain financial control, flexibility and scalability

SAP Business One case study, Signum Solutions & MRC

Founded in 1976, Manchester Rusk Company is a privately owned family business located in Manchester. The company focuses on manufacturing of tasty marinades, glazes, coaters and sauces for butchers, retailers and the wider food industry.

Business disruption, security breaches and the potential for downtime are key concerns for businesses of all sizes. The prevailing wisdom is that by using old, underpowered systems you protect your business, but the truth they don’t fully protect you from loss or risk of downtime.

When Manchester Rusk Company (MRC) started to experience growth within certain areas, they realised that their previous software and server were old and had not been updated so this left the business at risk of disruption if anything went wrong.

Implementing a new system meant that the company could get an accurate view of daily operations more easily, and it could manage their customers, inventory, payments, and orders more efficiently.

“What many people don’t realise is that the SAP Business One software is for SMEs, with pricing for SMEs. Affordability is not an issue.” Adam Salisbury, Finance Director at MRC – The Flava People

MRC products

SAP Business One with ProcessForce was the perfect solution for Manchester Rusk Company. They needed to ensure that they kept their business growing and SAP could help them do this. The new system would enable Manchester Rusk Company to increase profits, save money and keep their business secure.

After a few years of growing, they have been able to really increase their productivity and streamline the way that they work. Because the new software is designed for businesses within the food manufacturing industry, it is easy to use which has given their team more time to focus on growth instead of worrying about the technology behind what they do.
