Devault Foods, a Devault, Pa., supplier of portion-controlled meat products, selected Deacom’s single-system enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution to improve efficiencies within the company's pricing strategy.
Eliminating bolt-ons and customizations from the ERP environment, DEACOM ERP delivers an inherently simpler platform, synchronizing all areas of Devault's business within a single location.
"In our industry, it is essential that we monitor notorious fluctuating prices on raw material," says Brett Black, chief operating officer for Devault Foods. "Currently, we are managing various independent systems, which often cause discrepancies between reports. For our company, minimal margins of even a penny can make a significant impact on our business's bottom line, and a reliable ERP system like DEACOM will allow us to create more accurate pricing plans and forecasting."
Deacom's single-system ERP software model eliminates the need for Devault's team to manage a broken system, deploy workarounds and manually input data to produce critical reports. Be it accounting, warehouse management, customer relationship management, lot tracking or mobile access, all capabilities are available within one system and without the need for customizations. For Devault particularly, this real-time visibility enables the manufacturer to better match its gross margin to the profit and loss statement.
"Deacom will allow us to remove a lot of the 'busy work' that was slowing our growth. Their unique, single-system software model puts them far ahead of other ERP providers and allows process manufacturers to dive deep into their data to conduct accurate forecasting. Now that Devault has selected DEACOM, the volatile cost component of our industry is able to be better managed for the long term," adds Black.
Deacom, Inc. is headquartered in Chesterbrook, Pa.
