Empire Candle welcomed growth in the early 2000s, but it brought many challenges. Expansion had led to challenges in manufacturing processes related to inventory and production control. Raw materials were left in the warehouse unused for years, while Empire Candle struggled to determine the necessary supplies to meet demands.
Our inventory variances were detrimental to the profitability of the business. And it wasn’t like product was evaporating. We weren’t losing raw materials.
A partnership for success
Through the investment and implementation of Sage X3, Empire Candle has changed the way it operates. Through improved processes, the company has transformed inventory management and streamlined operations, from the point of order through to delivery.
The core recommendation was to engage in an optimization project to overhaul some of Empire’s practices that had been poorly implemented.
Annual savings of over $400,000
Empire Candle has grown over 300% since implementing Sage X3, including a 30% reduction in unproductive labor and the consolidation of an entire warehouse facility footprint. Through these performance increases, Empire Candle is saving around $400,0000 per year.
The right systems don’t just make IT better or technology better. They make the company better. That’s what you want. This is the central nervous system of the company. That’s what a professionally managed system like Sage Business Cloud provides us with.
