WellPet has been running IFS Applications at its corporate office since 2004, but the company's recent merger left the business running two separate ERP systems. In order to streamline processes and gain real-time visibility in the manufacturing facility, the old system at WellPet's Mishawaka, Indiana, USA, manufacturing plant was replaced with IFS Applications. The solutions implemented were IFS Manufacturing, IFS Distribution and an integrated automated data collection through IFS partner Radley Corp.
"This IFS Applications implementation will allow us the ability to automate our lot traceability procedure within our manufacturing plant, automate real-time performance metrics, improve production scheduling efficiencies and reduce lead times to customers," said Beth Wilson, WellPet vice president of operations.
