Dutch Farms: Refrigerated and Frozen Foods Distributor Enhances Operations With Flexible ERP Solution
Chicago-based Dutch Farms has 160 employees and distributes a private-label line of dairy products and eggs and a range of refrigerated and frozen foods. After exhausting the capabilities of its aging, Unix-based Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system, the company realized that it needed a modern solution with comprehensive and integrated functionality to keep up with growth and the needs of a dynamic, highly competitive market. For its new ERP system, Dutch Farms chose Microsoft Dynamics NAV and implemented the solution with help from Microsoft Gold Certified Partner Solution Systems. Since deployment, the company has grown its revenue by 25 percent without needing to add staff to back-office positions, control over operations, and sharpened its competitive edge with both small and large retailers alike.
