Ellenos Yogurt Upgrades from QuickBooks and Excel to NorthScope ERP Software
Mill Creek, WA: Coined “the yogurt that makes ice cream jealous,” Real Greek LLC (DBA: Ellenos Yogurt) is making their old systems jealous as they upgrade to NorthScope ERP software to manage their sales and inventory. Previously, Ellenos Yogurt was using a combination of QuickBooks and Excel spreadsheets to manage their Seattle-based business.
Ellenos Yogurt’s search for a new solution was due in large part to the difficulty they had managing BOMs as well as the inefficiency of the tools they were using to manage the inventory, purchasing and production sides of their business. Ultimately, they chose NorthScope because it offers industry-specific tools to streamline their processes as well as the ability to provide seamless integrations with their warehouse management and quality management systems. At the culmination of their implementation, NorthScope will help Ellenos Yogurt:
- Eliminate duplicate and error-prone data entry
- Improve access to data
- Streamline their inventory management processes
- Manage perpetual inventory
- Manage production and have real-time visibility of inventory throughout their processes
- Improve traceability
- Improve visibility and management of costs throughout their processes
- Gain visibility of expected yields vs. actual yields in production
Discussing the implementation of NorthScope, NLP Sales Manager, Vince Pluhacek, said, “We pride ourselves on giving our customers the tools they need to help them succeed – whether that’s a complete, standalone ERP system built for their industry or a system to supplement what they’re already using. We’re so excited to fulfill that promise with Ellenos by providing the industry-specific features they need to optimize their business and we can’t wait to see their continued growth.”
