After using the same system for 25 years, Sola de Antequera faced the challenge to modernize their IT environment. 

Commercial Director Teresa Jiménez Lara: "The moment that we needed to make a decision to reamke the whole system, or to start from scratch with a new one. And that's whey we decided to search for an ERP system."

connection between production and quality

Modern ERP solutions combine all business processes into one single software solution, including inventory and production management, as well business administration and logistics. For example, the ERP-system will automatically make the connection between the production department, the necessary quality requirements as well as specific requests from your customers.

A standard solution that fits food needs

Teresa Jiménez Lara: "We evaluated 3 different solutions with their respective cost of implementation and the content offered by the solution and it was Navision and SI Foodware that offered us the management of all the areas of the company. Other solutions evaluated left out, for example, quality control, which is very important for us.Finally, what we were looking for in an ERP system was to have everything integrated in one system and not to work with different systems for each department, as we had before."

Comparing their implementation with projects of other ERP vendors, the implementation in Sola de Antequera went quite well. One of the key elements of the project, was the involvement of all the departments within the company, resulting in a high and positive commitment from the staff to make this a successful project.

With all these improvements," Sola de Antequera is ready for the future and can continue to grow and deliver their products to more customers around the world.
