While having a powerful and growing brand portfolio has enabled the company to significantly expand its market share, the company’s own on-premises corporate ERP was not only costly, it was increasingly difficult to deploy to new lines of business, and was nearing the end of its support life. The company’s recent acquisition of Natural Balance Pet Foods presented the perfect opportunity to begin the rollout of Del Monte’s new Kenandy cloud ERP system. “We decided to put Natural Balance on our chosen ERP system—Kenandy—from day one, so they would be up and running quickly, using Del Monte’s enterprise standards,” explains David McLain, Senior Vice President, Chief Information Officer and Chief Procurement Officer at Del Monte Foods.
Inheriting the benefits of the Salesforce Platform on which it was built, Kenandy ERP not only provides flexibility and extensibility, it’s also extremely fast to deploy. Deployment is so fast, in fact, that Kenandy CEO and Chairman Sandra Kurtzig made a commitment to Del Monte to go live with Kenandy at Natural Balance just 90 minutes after the acquisition was complete. The system was up and running even faster than that.
Del Monte is realizing a number of benefits from its deployment of Kenandy at Natural Balance, including better visibility through a “single source of truth” and the elimination of many manual processes. Kenandy also enhances productivity in production, quality management, shipping, and receiving, while seamlessly integrating Del Monte’s best practices—an all around win-win.
