Legacy systems had grown outdated and incapable of supporting fast-moving innovation

Lesters Foods is a Canadian institution. This family-owned business has grown from local deli to nationwide brand, but with growth comes challenges. They were working in silos, had limited access to real-time data, there was too much paperwork and many manual processes. They needed a solution to connect their systems to help them make the right decisions for the business.

Business requires constant decisions. You have to make the correct decision and make it quickly enough to make an impact. As we grew we found we were losing that ability because we didn’t have timely and accurate information about our business. We couldn’t forecast accurately ; we didn’t spot problems until it was too late.

Seamless system integration

Tangerine Software, a Montreal-based partner of Sage, designed and implemented Sage X3 for Lesters Foods. The solution included features for sales order entry, distribution, inventory, manufacturing, financials, and enterprise intelligence, reducing the overall complexity of the business and providing a faster, simpler, more flexible way for Lesters Foods to run its business.

We now have the information we need to make better decisions. We’re working with real-time data instead of historical reports based on stale data.

Traceability and accountability

Lesters can now track every element in the production process. This helps with regulatory compliance and food safety standards, and strengthens management control. The different parts of the business no longer work in silos.

Lesters has a great history, but our future depends on innovative tools like Sage X3 to drive future growth.
