The Pie Company started using SI Foodware in no-time
21 January 2016
The Pie Company in Dronten is a start-up company that is specialised in creating high quality-baked apple pies. General Director Luc Apperloo states: ‘We're a small but fast-growing organisation, which is why our company processes have to be prepared for this growth as well.’ With the implementation of the ERP system SI Foodware in combination with Microsoft Dynamics, the company is ready for the future.
The Pie Company started in 2014 after the acquisition of an existing bakery. The company has slowly been revived. ‘At the time we started with the accounting package that was already being used before the acquisition. However, this did not meet our requirements. With SI Foodware we now use one integral solution for the entire operational management of the company. This ensures consistency in data throughout the system, which saves us a lot of time,’ according to Luc Apperloo of The Pie Company.
USER-FRIENDLINESS OF THE SOFTWARE
Despite the fact that issues such as tracing, SSCC labels and VMI apply to The Pie Company, we decided on a software implementation of limited scope, which resulted in a swift rollout of the system. Schouw has offered the software in a monthly model, resulting in additional flexibility. Luc Apperloo is very excited about it: ‘The limited scope, Schouw's experience in the food industry and the user-friendliness of the package all made sure that I could start using SI Foodware almost immediately. Last week I even used the software on my tablet!’ The first steps towards significant growth have been taken. ‘And thanks to SI Foodware there are many more opportunities ahead,’ Luc Apperloo concludes with a satisfied smile.
