ERP helps Piwa Food respond to market changes
Piwa Food is a successful business supplying the food and grocery market, which is characterized by rapid change and significant challenges. When the company stepped up the efforts to develop its business processes, Jeeves ERP was selected as the backbone for this effort.
Piwa Food’s primary area of business is to represent and distribute food for producers and manufacturer, assisting them in developing their brands for the Scandanavian market. The company also has a considerable export business and furnishes products to IKEA stores all over the world.
FLOW-ORIENTED & AUTOMATIC
After implementing Jeeves ERP, Piwa Food became a flow-oriented organization, with high automation levels in many administrative processes. The subsequent integration of a warehouse management system with Jeeves ERP has resulted in an extremely cost-effective logistic chain, streamlining product movement from manufacturer to final consumer. Jeeves ERP’s capacity for control and its flexibility in addressing business needs have also been important success factors for Piwa Food.
“In an ever-changing and tough marketplace, where automation and control is crucial for success, Jeeves is a great and important aid for us,” said Lukas Cronberg, purchasing manager at Piwa Food. “We’ve reached a higher level when it comes to automation, but are able to continuously spot new possibilities to tweak the processes further. Jeeves ERP’s flexibility and [ability to be] modified is valuable, and gives us the possibility to tailor business solutions according to customers’ demands.”
As an example of a solution adapted to customers’ needs, Cronberg cited the potential of inserting new functions in Jeeves ERP and adjusting the appearance of invoices and delivery notes. Cronberg also noted that Jeeves ERP helps Piwa Food quickly and easily identify errors in shipping, helping the company provide broader and more flexible customer service.
