The manufacturer of Torockoi cheeses has optimized its activity with Senior Software’s solutions and is preparing to enter new European markets

De Coltesti has streamlined its operations in the factory with the help of state of the art technologies and plans to access new international markets. The dairy producer from the Trascaului area has invested over the years in modern systems for integrated business management, from Senior Software, reducing costs and significantly improving business performance by automating work flows.

The producer of Torockoi cheeses – De Coltesti, optimally monitors and controls the production process, from order to finished product, with Senior Software’s MES system. The solution used by the producer complements the other systems implemented by them: ERP – resource management software, BI – reporting and analysis system and SFA – sales force automation software. Thanks to the suite of perfectly integrated software systems, De Coltesti’s management has streamlined the company’s data flow, connected business processes and plans to expand its business to new markets in Europe.

With Senior Software’s MES software system, the manufacturer was able to achieve major time savings, such as a 40% reduction in order picking time, eliminate paper and significantly lower business costs. The De Coltesti team monitors and analyses everything that happens in the factory in real time and can react immediately where the situation requires it.

Initially, the field agent would go to the customer, add the order in the SFA and send it to the ERP, and from there everything was done somewhat manually, through a rather tedious process that involved a lot of attention, the risk of error being high. However, when we implemented this MES solution, things became much simpler. Everything we operate in ERP, we see in MES and vice versa. Further, by integrating ERP and SFA, we got a much better flow of data from the field to the factory, and then to the warehouse, and then to the product preparation and delivery area. And with BI, all the data of interest is gathered and made available to us in real time, to give us a clear overview and enable us to make certain decisions.

The process of selling, preparing and sending products to the customer now involves considerably less time. We have saved about 3 hours a day and the risk of errors in quantity or batch has been eliminated. It is very easy to follow the production process and maintain product quality with the MES solution. Things happen faster, you can act almost instantly and people respect the defined framework, because they cannot deviate from it. The interconnection between systems allows us to have complete transparency over production. People are much more connected to what we are doing and everyone knows exactly what they have to do.

Supported by modern software solutions, the manufacturer, with a turnover of around 5 million euros, processes 15,000 liters of milk daily and serves over 700 partners. The products, made according to Swiss recipes, are delivered in Romania using its own fleet to both traditional shops and large retail chains, as well as to partners in the HoReCa sector. Additionally, some Torockoi products, such as matured cheeses, are exported to countries like Belgium and Hungary. The manufacturer intends to access new segments of the international market by expanding its storage capacity.

These digital solutions prepare you for the future, meaning that they tell you exactly what you need to do today to make a profit tomorrow. Our plan is to keep getting better and better at what we do and we want Torockoi cheese to become recognised for its quality, not just nationally but as well as internationally.
