To streamline operations and enhance financial performance, Massimo Zanetti needed better visibility and control of its distribution lifecycle, and improved demand planning.
After a competitive review of vendors including SAP and Infor, Massimo Zanetti selected Oracle to replace its heavily customized legacy ERP platform and disparate point solutions.
By implementing JD Edwards EnterpriseOne and Oracle Demantra, Massimo Zanetti is able to leverage a single, scalable platform that delivers user-friendly financial management, trade promotions management and enhanced forecasting capabilities.
By consolidating processes critical to its consumer packaged goods business on Oracle software, Massimo Zanetti eliminated the entire cost of maintaining and hosting more than 50 pieces of standalone software, reaching savings of more than 20 percent.
The new integrated planning environment has also enabled Massimo Zanetti to minimize excess inventory.
In addition, by standardizing on a single planning tool, users now have real-time access to valuable data through an easy-to-use self-service environment, which helps them improve forecasting accuracy and decision making.
With enhanced planning capabilities and streamlined operations, Massimo Zanetti has strengthened its ability to deliver superior value to its customers.
“As a rapidly growing midsize business, it is critical we have clear visibility into our inventory and are able to accurately forecast demand,” said Bob Ashford, VP of Information Technology, Massimo Zanetti Beverage USA. “We chose Oracle’s JD Edwards EnterpriseOne and Oracle Demantra over tools from SAP and Infor because Oracle offered the most complete, integrated and scalable solutions to meet our complex consumer packaged goods and manufacturing needs.”
“This investment in our business enables us to best serve our customers and brings us closer to our goal of becoming the most sought-after coffee partner in North America,” said Larry Quier, Chief Operating Officer, Massimo Zanetti Beverage USA.
