Evolution Foods: Supporting rapid expansion, compliance and traceability
Evolution Foods was also experiencing problems in traceability and product compliance with increasingly tight legislation in the field of food safety. They also found that most systems on the market had outdated user interfaces and were not able to handle complex client reporting. Evolution Foods needed a system that could grow with them and support rapid expansion, compliance and traceability
Evolution Foods experienced significant growth and tripled turnover in the last 2.5 years and now has over 200 products, but its previous system could not cope with this level of rapid expansion. With supermarkets looking for better full life-cycle tracking of products, the business looked for a system with capabilities to support food industry requirements as well as enabling room for further growth.
Having implemented SAP Business One and ProcessForce 3 months ago, Mike Alexander comments: “The amazing thing is, I’ve implemented a lot of computer systems before but with this one I’m really impressed by how quickly we got to the stage where everyone is completely comfortable with the system. I’m very impressed with the functionality too. I would absolutely recommend it and would definitely choose it again!”
Why Signum Solutions for Evolution Foods
“It was the ProcessForce add on that Signum Solutions offer alongside SAP Business One that ultimately made us decide to partner with Signum. With the need to support BRC requirements alongside more and more regulations that are being put into place, we could see that the solution would handle all of that really well.”
Mike continues: “The relationship with Signum has been really good. I’d actually been speaking to them on and off for 2 years, so when the time came to look for something new, I knew it was worth getting back in touch. Since implementation any issues have been dealt with quickly and it’s easy to call up and speak to the staff. Signum offers the type of flexibility and approach to customer service that you don’t tend to find with similar bigger companies.”
