Illes Seasonings and Flavors is a third-generation family-owned company that focuses on developing and producing seasonings and flavors. To position itself for growth as a low-cost provider, the company needed a technology partner that knew its business and wouldn’t break the bank.
The executive team at Illes turned to Pivotal CRM and Ross ERP to enable it to manage finances and develop KPIs so that managers could see data in real time, and make decisions based on knowing the details instead of general observations and historical data. The company implemented Ross ERP with the data collection module to improve efficiency, and Pivotal CRM to manage its vendor pool.
Executives report that Illes is more competitive in the marketplace with the help of Ross ERP. The R&D department has eliminated paper record retention, and in the factory. Vicky Peterlin, Vice President of Operations, credits the implementation of Ross with the company developing a more true cost for each individual product, so “that when we go to the floor with a product, we know we are making money.”
One of our key goals is to become a low cost producer. So all this data collection will help us to look at our processes, measure our processes and close those improvement gaps.
