ProcessPro, leading ERP software powered by Open Systems Adaptable Solutions (OSAS), is pleased to announce the successful go live of its Global solution by El Popocatepetl, a Chicago-based tortilla manufacturer.
El Popocatepetl sought a business management system to maintain accurate inventory data and streamline management of its product lines. With increasing FDA regulatory compliance requirements, the need for forward and backward lot traceability and reporting functionality was crucial for their growth. After outgrowing Quickbooks, the company invested in ProcessPro’s Global ERP solution for process manufacturers and recently completed software training and implementation.
Since going live, El Popocatepetl is benefiting from utilizing a fully integrated solution to manage its inventory levels in real-time, including finished goods and raw materials. This has been especially valuable as they were dealing with shortages caused by the coronavirus pandemic and could react quickly to supply issues. The scalability of Global provided the company with the ability to take on new business, as a direct competitor in their industry permanently closed their operations during the pandemic. El Popocatepetl was able to use the new capabilities of the solution to adjust with the increase in sales while keeping visibility into production costs to ensure profitability and competitiveness.
“Going live on a new ERP solution can be an overwhelming task, especially during a national pandemic. El Popocatepetl excelled during their implementation process and with the support of their OSAS project team, they are benefiting from our solution and support. The ability to remotely connect to the Global solution supported social distancing and teleworking,” stated Molly Caron, Director, Delivery Services.
