Puppy Cake was spoiling dogs with their treats. But they were struggling to achieve the perfect balance of inventory management, and their bottom-line was being affected by this.
That was until they found Katana. With Katana they have been able to:
- Improve the efficiency of day-to-day operations to 100%;
- Get more control of their material inventory with our auto-booking feature; and
- Have a master production schedule with a clear overview of operations progress with a task list, so team members know what tasks are left to complete.
Puppy Cake said, “We used Excel spreadsheets to attempt to keep stock of our ingredients and what was needed to accomplish different manufacturing processes. It was tedious and inaccurate.”
Since abandoning the inefficient spreadsheets, Puppy Cake has been able to dramatically optimize their, operations, inventory control, and time management.
Katana’s auto-booking system allocates available material to the most recent manufacturing orders, so Puppy Cake can effortless see if they have enough resources to complete their operations.
However, if they wish to reprioritize the work order to finish an important order sooner, Katana’s nifty drag-and-drop feature means they can refocus their workflow. Katana will also redistribute allocated material to make sure the priority order is fulfilled first.
Katana’s visual and easy-to-use interface has allowed them to tighten up their control over their business. They have improved how they track material inventory and organize operations, helping them drastically reduce the number of production stoppages they were facing due to stock-outs.
