Softengine Presents and Delivers the Right Solution – On Time and Under Budget

"As a fast-growing business, we needed a fully integrated ERP system that would tie together all three of our locations and ensure that everyone was on the same page," noted Goffin. "We decided to perform a competitive evaluation of a few ERP packages in roughly the same price range and determine which one offered the most out-of-the-box functionality for a unique enterprise such as ours. Specifically, the new system had to be able to unify our sales, purchasing, inventory, production and financials"

After receiving high-pressure sales pitches from a few ERP software companies, La Tourangelle management had a totally different experience during a demo presentation of SAP Business One by Softengine (an SAP Gold Partner VAR based in Woodland Hills, California). "Softengine consultants presented an information-packed demo of the features and benefits of SAP Business One that were essential for our unique operations," said Goffin. "They took the time to learn all about our business processes, even going out to our warehouse in Woodland to gain a deeper understanding of our production processes so they could ensure that the software would fit our requirements. And better yet, there was absolutely no pressure and lots of direct and honest communication. Based on their professionalism, commitment and integrity, we had confidence that we had found the right product and the right partner for its implementation."

While SAP Business One offered most of the features and functionality they needed to integrate all of the accounting and inventory data between the main office, production facility and warehouse, La Tourangelle still needed Softengine to create a few custom financial reports and special alerts geared toward their receivables, payables, shipping and customer management. Here are a few of the more notable reports and alerts:

Reports:
• Reports by Group – Management can run a profit & loss report specifically for each flavor of oil (e.g., Roasted Walnut, Grapeseed, Sesame, etc.) so they can assess the profitability of each product.
• Sales by Item Detail – This report displays more than just total sales by particular item; it can also be used to determine commissions for salespeople. On any given transaction date, management can see how many units of a particular item were sold and the salesperson associated with that item. Management can then compute commissions based upon a designated percentage of net sales per item.
• Bill of Lading – To be able to account for shipments from various shipping companies, Softengine customized the SAP Business One Bill of Lading feature to accommodate numerous user-defined fields, including those for "Pallet Cases," "Pallet Weight, "Actual Freight from Fedex" and many more.
• Bi-directional Conversion from U.S. to International Weight Measurement (i.e., pounds to litres and back) – This feature enables the system to convert weight measurements of products shipping in litres or kilogrammes from overseas to pounds in the U.S. and vise-versa. (continued...)
