By adopting a flexible and intuitive Oracle Enterprise Resource Planning Cloud, we gained real-time insight into shop profitability, responded faster to the evolving food industry, and prepared for future expansion into ecommerce. Our users can also easily adopt the solution with nearly zero training needs.
Yonehachi Group, K.K. specializes in providing take away or catering service for hand-made Japanese Bento lunch boxes and other traditional Japanese food via more than 100 retail shops in major train stations, highway service areas, and large department stores.
Due to its traditional branding and business model, senior shop managers were reluctant to adopt new technology and used paper forms to manually compile daily financial reports and faxed them to the head office. This caused significant delay in decision-making and negatively impacted company profitability. To increase its competitive edge in the industry, Yonehachi Group wanted to implement an enterprisewide ERP cloud solution to easily and accurately monitor business activities and support future growth into the ecommerce space.
Oracle Enterprise Resource Planning Cloud is flexible and scalable, enabling us to reduce initial IT costs and respond quickly to new opportunity and changing business environment. The intuitive interface also helped our users to easily and rapidly adopt the new system from day one.
Yonehachi Group, K.K. spent approximately two months to define the system requirement for Oracle ERP Cloud and another three months for development and calibration. It then took just one month to complete the data migration and user training. Yonehachi Group, K.K. went live with the new platform in less than six months.
