Savoury Systems International, Inc. is in the flavor business. The company manufactures ingredient blends and enhancers utilized by some of the biggest names in the food industry. Recognized as one of Inc. Magazine’s fastest growing private companies, Savoury Systems is experiencing 20 percent year-over-year growth increases. Throughout that growth, the company continues to remain at the forefront of industry trends.
Savoury Systems was experiencing rapid growth but lacked accurate inventory management and forecasting tools. To protect against stock outs, the company often overstocked, which proved costly and wasteful.
After reviewing several other solutions, the company found a complete solution in Enterprise Management with Sage Inventory Advisor and Sage Enterprise Intelligence.
Working capital tied up in inventory was reduced by nearly $2 million. Fill rates have greatly improved. Stock outs are at an all-time low. Since the implementation of Enterprise Management, the company’s annual revenues have grown by three million dollars, yet its inventory holdings have been reduced. Key performance indicators allow management to measure the performance of every department. A full return on investment was realized within one year.
