Mountain States Rosen | Microsoft Dynamics GP Food & Beverage Industry Case Study
- Food and Beverage
- Wholesale Distribution
A combination of B. Rosen & Sons Inc, a three generation lamb and veal processor/distributor and the Mountain States Lamb Cooperative, a producer owned cooperative representing sheep producers in fifteen states, Mountain States Rosen consolidates supply chain operations in Wyoming, Colorado and New York under one roof, from farm to fabrication, on to retailers and restaurants across the United States.
After running a highly customized Unix based computer system for several years, Mountain States Rosen acknowledged that the shortcomings of their aging system had caught up with them and that the associated business risks were too large to ignore. Beyond the systems inherent lack of flexibility and subsequent inability to expand and keep pace as technology changed, Mountain States Rosen’s profit and security was suffering from a lack of functionality. Chief among these deficiencies were:
- A lack of reporting, which prevented them from performing
tasks as basic as sales analysis
- An absence of accurate, real-time inventory information and
supply chain visibility
- The inability to meet HACCP, USDA and other compliance demands, due in large part to the systems inability to perform lot level traceability from cradle to the grave
- Exporting USDA required sales information from their custom EDI solution and adding new EDI trading partners required costly customizations
In their new system, Mountain States Rosen (MSR) was looking for an integrated solution with the flexibility and scalability required to support their growth. In a solution provider, not only did they require a company with great knowledge and experience, but also a team of trusted advisors that would be able to handle all of their IT needs and be their strategic IT partner for years to come.
