Nature One Dairy Expands Sales with Tribridge DXC Technology

Nature One Dairy is an Australian-owned blending and canning manufacturer dedicated to producing high-quality, specialty powdered milk products from grass-fed Australian cows. After experiencing rapid growth in its own country, the company decided to market to nearby Asia, where safe, affordable infant formula is in high demand but difficult to find.


Challenge:
As it expanded its business, Nature One Dairy realized the time had come to modernize to more automated, integrated and efficient processes. The company was still relying on a combination of traditional quality assurance practices, separate accounting and production systems, and considerable manual effort. The most pressing issue was improving the ease and accuracy of stock control to trace the raw materials used in the powdered milk products, since in addition to the base powder, the finished product contains vitamins and other ingredients from a variety of suppliers.


Solution:
Nature One Dairy spent six months exploring various warehousing, accounting and other options before deciding that an end-to-end SAP SMB solution, based on SAP Business One for HANA would best meet its requirements. The company chose DXC Oxygen, part of the DXC Technology global SAP team and the leading specialist SAP solutions provider across Australia and New Zealand, to deliver and customize the solution.


Results:
  • Streamlined, integrated and transparent business processes, with consolidated warehouse, production and accounting systems
  • More accurate inventory and quality control, with traceability from raw materials to finished product
  • Higher efficiency, less production downtime, significant staff time savings, and the ability to better meet customers’ requirements and delivery dates
The company has been able to combine four different parts of the business — raw materials receiving/scanning, accounting, warehousing and production recording — into one system so they work together to give us a final product and a final count, which they couldn’t do previously.

Sikes Paper Captures Significant Cost Savings With DDI

In a world of high speed burnishers and fast-acting disinfectants, the Janitorial and Sanitation industry values anything that saves time and labor. What holds true on the facility floor is equally true in distributor offices and warehouses. The term "speed to market" originated with software companies and referred to getting new products on market shelves as quickly as possible.


For Sikes Paper Company in Atlanta, Ga., its rapid speed to market can be contributed to its implementation of DDI System's Inform software technology. "Our world is all about speed," notes Greg Truitt, vice president and general manager for Sikes Paper Company. "DDI has provided us the technology to literally change our speed to market. That 'Goliath' down the street who is spending millions of dollars, cannot begin to compete with us on our speed and customer responsiveness."


The multi-dimensional features of DDI System's Inform distribution software enables Sikes Paper Company to seamlessly integrate various functions and departments. It delivers speedy solutions for everyone in the company such as the accounts receivable person in the main office, the salesperson working on the road from his car, and the customer service rep in the Dalton branch office.
