Katana has removed the time-consuming spreadsheets, and Hornby Organic now can focus on increasing their productivity and profitability, which is essential in the food industry that is known for its low margins. They have seen an improvement in the following areas of their business:
- More than 100% increase in inventory control - from raw ingredients to finished bars;
- Decreased the admin-time by half; and
- Doubled their production planning efficiency.
Furthermore, they have implemented end-to-end traceability to their products. This has been a critical feature to ensure the product quality and meet the safety standards of food manufacturing ingredients. Inventory control allows them to keep track of the ingredient and product expiry dates within each batch.
“Katana fulfills all our needs in a simple easy solution. As an organic food processor, traceability is a critical requirement, and our records must be meticulously kept.”
Hornby Organics manages their sales orders from various channels, and Katana brings all their orders to a single dashboard. From this centralized dashboard, they can automatically begin production, track their raw materials and ready goods while tracking their costs and profitability too.
