Aptean Food & Beverage ERP Case Study: R.L. Schreiber

Mar 31, 2021


  • R.L. Schreiber’s Modernization Journey With Aptean Food & Beverage ERP

R.L. Schreiber is a manufacturer and distributor of quality flavor bases, seasonings, herbs, spices and culinary items. Founded in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and now operating a manufacturing plant in Kentucky, the business has been crafting and distributing products to the foodservice industry since the late 1960s.

The business has been an Aptean customer since 2010, utilizing our food and beverage specific enterprise resource planning (ERP) system to monitor production, quality checks and traceability.

When the company’s IT director, Yorck Haase joined R.L. Schreiber, he knew that technology is the key to success and growth for today’s food manufacturing companies.

The Challenge

Such a long history means R.L. Schreiber has decades of valuable experience in the food and beverage sector, but it’s also made staying up to date with technological advancements and continuously reevaluating current processes a daunting task.

Haase’s first hurdle was to implement dedicated processes, procedures and standards that not only ensured that the company’s strict quality requirements were met, but also promoted fluid, efficient workflows between departments. That necessitated removing obstacles that stood in the way of sales targets or that didn’t properly contribute to company-wide communication.

The Solution

Haase has prioritized getting R.L. Schreiber fully up-to-date by putting in place modern tools and systems to streamline operations. Part of this process included increasing the ways the company utilizes its food-specific ERP software, Aptean Food & Beverage ERP.

The cloud-based system offers R.L. Schreiber a range of purpose-built functionality to solve specific food and beverage industry challenges. In addition, the system is hosted entirely within the cloud offering additional benefits such as enhanced scalability, security and accessibility.

The Results

Aptean Food & Beverage ERP helps Haase and his team create a single source of information for all areas of the business including finance, forecasting, planning, procurement and sales, which ensures data integrity and increased visibility into the business. And now, he’s looking to utilize the solution for its analytics and data visualization features, which can create reports and dashboards with considerable levels of detail.

What’s more, the system also allows the organization to better manage relationships with more than 100 independent purveyors in their network.

Going forward, Haase will be leveraging his expertise to keep the company moving forward with technological developments as they arise. He recognizes the importance that has for the business, as well as what his role should be in R.L. Schreiber’s future.
