“Bill-of-materials (BOM) is a tremendous help in our manufacturing process and overall production management. Integrations with Shopify and Xero also play a big role in business management, helping us streamline our operations from sales orders to ready-made goods. We can now manage both B2B and B2C orders with greater ease.”
How does it look in numbers? Since using Katana, Raw Coffee Company has:
- Improved on-time order fulfillment by almost 60%;
- Optimized raw material and finished goods inventory management by 30%; and
- Increased the efficiency of their day-to-day operations by up to 40%.
“We love Katana because it evolves its functionality rapidly. We are looking forward to more reporting features and are confident that the wait will not be too long.”
Using smart manufacturing software can go a long way in helping coffee manufacturers spend their time where it’s most needed. Without it, you might well get lost in menial spreadsheet work instead of developing quality coffee people want to buy. For example, knowing how to manage your raw material inventory for your different coffee blends can be a major hindrance to your time.
You want to know how much coffee you have, and when you need to be ordering more. Just using spreadsheets to manage this can be incredibly difficult when there are multiple roasts occurring throughout the day. In the same way, you need production management software that can schedule production and let everyone know what their tasks are at any given moment.
