East Coast Bakehouse is the new biscuit bakery on the block. Established less than a year ago, the large scale start-up has been working hard on commissioning the factory, developing a great range of new biscuits and creating a new brand.
The Drogheda-based business has ambitious plans to deliver new flavours, new textures to meet customer demand. But one of the main ingredients to their recipe for success is SAP Business One.
In less than six-weeks Milner Browne’s team of SAP certified experts had implemented SAP Business One at East Coast Bakehouse to mix together different elements within the bakery.
“The Milner Browne team were knowledgeable, responsive and flexible,” said Gerry Murphy, who helped manage the implementation. “This allowed us to implement the system in a six week period in advance of the start of our first trading year at the start of March.”
Gerry Murphy said SAP Business One’s range of tools really caught the eye when the Bakehouse was researching potential solutions.
“We choose SAP Business One because it had good functionality and a proven track record in similar food businesses to ourselves,” he said.
During its discovery phrase East Coast Bakehouse identified a need for a system that could be installed and would be fully functionally quickly with limited management resource.
“We are a newly established company with a highly automated, best in class, flexible production facility. We need a system to allow us manage the production process with maximum efficiency and limited waste,” Gerry added.
To help manage the bakery’s production processes, East Coast Bakehouse complemented their SAP Business One solution with Milner Browne’s affordable and innovative add-ons.
“Milner Browne has a proven track record in implementing SAP Business One in food manufacturing facilities and was able to provide us with access to relevant reference sites. They demonstrated a good knowledge of the challenges of our production process. SAP Business One has much of the functionality required to facilitate efficient management of our production process. The added functionality of Milner Browne’s B1 Production App was also particularly attractive.”
