Client: B2B Food Delivery Company
A specialist in food delivery, B2B distribution and bulk shipping, providing general supplies for coffee shops, pubs and restaurants on a large scale.
The company had previously been unsuccessful in bringing in an ERP system. After working with the business to understand the current business processes and workflows, the Associate guided them through reviews to streamline and use technology where possible to remove manual interventions. The Associated then worked with vendors to create a short-list of suitable partners and systems that the business could meet, review and make a selection from. Appointing the successful vendor he then mediated between them to ensure a smooth and progressive development and transition of system was undertaken. The completed development brought additional automation to the business and allowed for internet and email of orders to be processed without user intervention for the first time.
Whilst keeping the existing IT team intact, our Associate improved the management structure and helped improve the department’s efficiency, which immediately benefited the business.
There were significant, noticeable increases in efficiency across the business following our Associate’s work. Increases in revenue were also recorded, and there were savings made on staff costs, in part thanks to internet orders being possible for the first time.
