Challenges

Vitacore does an ever so important deed - taking care of the front-line worker safety during the global pandemic. The front-line takes the first and the worst hits in any dangerous situation. Therefore having a proper and safe defense is an utmost priority. To help them focus on providing reliability and safety to their customers, Vitacore needed more control over the back end of their manufacturing.
The main areas they set out to improve were:
  1. Batch tracking for individual orders;
  2. Inventory and product management; and
  3. Matching manufacturing orders with prospective sales orders.

Why Katana?

Vitacore came to Katana straight from using spreadsheets and has stuck with it ever since. When asked about the other solutions they tried out, they said testing others wasn't necessary since Katana was satisfactory enough.
