Manufacturer of Food and Nutrition Products Uses Made2Manage ERP Software to Improve Efficiencies

Consona Corporation (Consona), a worldwide leader in providing customer relationship management (CRM) and enterprise resource planning (ERP) software and services for companies of all sizes, today announced at its Consona Connect 2012 user conference that Food Sciences Corporation (Food Sciences), a N.J.-based manufacturer of food and nutrition products, is a 2012 Summit Award winner for its use of Consona’s Made2Manage® ERP software. Food Sciences was selected due to the breadth of increased efficiency the company achieved across all areas of its business.

Food Sciences used the Made2Manage ERP solution to achieve the following results:

  •     Thirty percent reduction in on-hand inventory due to improved inventory control and traceability
  •     Improved on-time shipping rate from 80 percent to 99 percent
  •     Month-end close in just two days, as opposed to typical seven to 10 days
  •     Decreased order turnaround on emerging, private-label business, from more than a week to a day or less

All of these improvements have enabled Food Sciences to focus on emerging areas of its business. “A growing part of our business is private labeling some products for customers,” said Stewart Freedman, IT director, Food Sciences. “It used to take at least a week to turn that kind of order around. Now we can do it in a day or less. We are doing more with fewer people.”

“We’re thrilled to honor Food Sciences with a Summit Award at Consona Connect 2012,” said Jeff Tognoni, CEO, Consona. “The efficiency improvements the company has realized throughout the entire organization are a testament to how companies can use our software to improve overall performance.”
