Long Beach, CA (PRWEB) September 29, 2015
Global ERP, CRM, POS, and eCommerce solution provider Ignify is proud to announce its newest Microsoft Dynamics AX for Retail customer: Shakey’s Pizza.
Founded in 1954 in the United States, Shakey’s Pizza has expanded globally. Philippines-based company International Family Food Services Inc. is the largest operator of the Shakey’s Pizza brand in the world. The Microsoft Dynamics AX for Retail solution on Azure will be deployed to over 200 stores in the Philippines.
Shakey’s Pizza’s previous financial management system did not provide an integrated system that tied together the point of sale, retail operations, production facilities, and the financial management. As a result, Shakey’s relied on a variety of custom systems for inventory, restaurant and delivery, and point of sale management. Shakey’s sought a complete, end-to-end retail solution that could consolidate all of these operations into one system.
“Ignify is proud to serve another company in the food and beverage industry, as our team’s deep understanding of the unique processes and needs of these companies allows us to provide solutions that greatly enhance productivity,” said Sandeep Walia, Chief Executive Officer of Ignify. “With Microsoft Dynamics AX, Shakey’s gains a powerfully functional, cloud ERP system that will support the company’s technology strategy.”
Most important to Shakey’s, however, is that Microsoft Dynamics AX will enable the company to continue building on its “Guest First” core value. The ability to set up tables by restaurant in the system, and to assign tables to parties, configure table transfers, and record table numbers on dine-in orders placed online or by phone, will enable Shakey’s to provide top-notch customer service.
Kitchen and recipe management from Ignify is streamlined with Microsoft Dynamics AX by allowing work stations to be set up (e.g. cutting station, baking station, packaging station), and recipes listing the ingredients, quantities, and steps needed for cooking specific items. This insight and direction will enable Shakey’s team members to work efficiently and productively, and customers to receive their orders in a timely manner. The cost per kitchen order can also be recorded in AX 7 for reference.
“Shakey’s Pizza looks forward to leveraging the powerful retail and financial capabilities within Microsoft Dynamics AX, as well as its cloud infrastructure, to provide our customers with the best casual dining experience possible,” said Mauch Franco, Chief Information Officer of International Family Food Services Inc.
“This win in the Philippines is a testament to the ERP and POS deployment expertise that has earned Ignify designation as Microsoft Dynamics Partner of the Year for the Asia Pacific region and ERP Partner of the Year in Philippines,” said Manuel Tanseco, General Manager of the Philippines operation at Ignify. “These validate our efforts in providing customers with innovative, world-class software solutions.”
