Trudeau Foods - Distributor Uses SAP Business One & Food One to Cut Costs and Free Capital For Growth

The Challenges

Trudeau FoodsTrudeau Foods, which distributes goods to retail food stores across a five-state region in the upper Midwest, had been saddled with an outdated and unreliable homegrown system that was incapable of delivering reliable and timely information to management. In fact, users often had to perform risky database manipulations in order to coax critical data from the system. A robust, reliable and scalable ERP solution was needed to support Trudeau’s transition from entrepreneurial organization to midsize enterprise.
