TOC’s biggest challenge was the absence of a single, integrated system, which created data silos and a lack of overall data visibility across departments. TOC initially used many internally built applications to run its business (including Great Plains for financials), but these home grown systems were not able to sustain the company’s rapid growth.
To eliminate redundancy and support plans for increased quality and growth, TOC set its sights on an ERP system that would provide the visibility needed across departments. They looked to JustFood for its laser focus on the food industry and its comprehensive functionality.
After implementing JustFood, The Original Cakerie was able to:
- Gain real-time visibility into shop floor processes
- Integrate recipe information into one single repository
- Become BRC Global Standard and Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) certified
- Better manage trade promotion, trade spend and rebate requests
