LaRue roasts Coffee with Epicor ERP

August 20, 2013 - Epicor Software announced that LaRue Coffee Roasterie of Omaha, Nebraska has gone live with the Epicor Tropos enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution. A full scope of the system has been successfully implemented at their manufacturing facility, complete with handheld terminals and shop floor touch screens and built-in features that are optimized for process manufacturing industries. The company has also selected Epicor as their partner for subsequent phases, which will see Epicor Tropos deployed in their distribution warehouses and equipment maintenance facility.

"We're realizing the benefits of an integrated system and real-time data collection on our shop floor," said Travis O'Gorman, vice president, roasting operations for LaRue Coffee Roasterie. "Since implementing Epicor Tropos our monthly manufacturing productivity has increased by 15 percent, and the system has helped us to significantly reduce our monthly raw material inventory discrepancies. In addition, we've won new accounts due to our ability to provide instant materials traceability, from the grower to the finished product. Lot control and full traceability is one of the main reasons why we selected Epicor Tropos, which will have an even greater impact as we move into the next phases of integrating the system with our sister companies."

The move to a modern ERP environment to replace manual systems supports efficiencies throughout all key operations: sales, inventory, production scheduling, manufacturing, materials traceability and financials. "We're especially excited to have real-time production scheduling, and accessibility to data through handhelds which has streamlined communication with operators on the shop floor. Another top benefit is accurate costing and pricing, and we can build endless reports quickly and easily," adds O'Gorman. "Working with Epicor has been a great experience due to the outstanding people, customer service and implementation team."

"LaRue Coffee Roasterie's successful implementation of Epicor Tropos demonstrates that using an ERP system developed specifically for your industry is one of the most important steps a company can take to rapidly drive performance, meet industry regulatory requirements, create efficiencies and achieve measureable results," says Tom Muth, senior manager, product marketing for Epicor.
