WAYNE, PA – July 24, 2014 – Deacom, Inc., producer of a modern, single system Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software solution specifically for food manufacturing and other process-based manufacturing industries, announced today that Surlean Foods, trusted custom-protein partner to numerous national restaurant chains, has selected DEACOM ERP to support a multi-facility expansion.
Surlean has seen a substantial increase in sales volume that recently resulted in the addition of two new facilities; a 114,000-square-foot culinary research and development center in San Antonio, as well as a 90,000-square-foot production facility in Dallas. The systems they had in place to support the single-plant operation were not built to effectively handle multiple sites, or increased production and throughput. Recognizing that they would ultimately become a hindrance to the company’s progress, Surlean proactively began the search for a new enterprise-wide solution.
Surlean focused on finding an ERP system that would easily evolve along with their business, as well as fully support their complex custom-batch processing requirements in a single solution, including recipe management, production scheduling, forecasting, quality control, purchasing, physical inventory, order entry, lot tracking, and reporting, etc. Surlean immediately recognized the positive impact that DEACOM’s true single system model would have on their productivity, efficiency, and future growth.
“We were particularly impressed by Deacom’s flexibility to accommodate our future requirements,” said Surlean’s Director of IT Services Cory Simmons. “As we expand into new facilities and new product lines, we must have a system that can adapt to support our ever-changing needs. Deacom will not only quickly address these needs with enhancements to the software, but they are covered under the guaranteed fixed price. Anyone who has had experience with ERP software knows what a huge impact that has on total cost of ownership. We couldn’t be more confident in our decision to select Deacom”
Surlean also cited DEACOM’s robust food industry-specific functionality and ease-of-use as significant benefits.
