Ter Beke has been using planning systems for the last ten years. Four years ago, when it became clear that their existing planning system was no longer adequate, they initiated the phased implementation of Infor SCM Advanced Planner. Ter Beke chose to invest in the Infor solution because it appeared to offer ample flexibility, which was needed to deal with the complexities of the fresh food range produced by the Ter Beke group.
Koen Vandenabeele, IT Director at Ter Beke: "After we implemented the planning solution it was clear that our planners spent less time inputting data. We also had a more detailed insight into our supply chain, our final planning wasmore accurate and we were able to deal with exceptions more efficiently. As a result, we were able to make optimal use of our production facilities. We were also able to increase efficiency and throughput rates, as well as reduce costs."
