Food Manufacturer Featured in Webinar Ends Data Integrity Issues with Single ERP System

Apr 04, 2008, 01:00 ET from Deacom, Inc.

    WAYNE, Pa., April 4, 2008 /PRNewswire/ -- Deacom, Inc. President Jay
 Deakins presented the webinar "Does Your Business Software Have Integrity?"
 on Wednesday, April 2, 2008 in conjunction with Food Engineering Magazine.
 This free event explored how heart-healthy tortilla maker La Tortilla
 Factory(R) selected and implemented the DEACOM Integrated Accounting and
 Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Software System to overcome critical
 inefficiencies caused by the use of multiple software systems.
     Prior to DEACOM, La Tortilla Factory(R) used multiple software systems
 to manage its recipe and lab management, regulatory reporting, accounting
 and financials, purchasing, sales order entry, inventory control, and
 production processes at its headquarters and production facility in Santa
 Rosa, CA. As the business grew from regional direct-store delivery to the
 national food market, however, the company had difficulty establishing data
 integrity and creating company-wide process controls.
     "There's a basic concept in programming," said Deakins. "If data is in
 more than one spot, eventually that data will be different."
     In 2006 La Tortilla Factory(R) coordinated an internal ERP software
 search that narrowed a field of prospective vendors from 56 to one. The
 final selection was based on simplicity in design, and the software's
 ability to handle all food-specific business processes in a single,
 integrated system.
     Deakins explained, "The new software implementation has resulted in a
 much simpler operation, and has allowed them to revamp their process
 controls and business processes. When data is in one system, it makes it
 easier to go to that one location to manage the entire business. For La
 Tortilla, it's been a very happy transition."
