Customer Profile

E.P. Supercarni was established in 1987 and operates in the beef, pork and poultry processing and transformation sector creating heat-and-serve dishes such as hamburgers, shish kabob and croquettes. These products, both fresh and frozen, are offered by various large retail chains (Auchan, Citta' Mercato, etc.), by a number of local wholesalers and directly at the Cagliari point of sale, which alone generates 50% of the company's almost €3.5m yearly sales. About 25 employees work for the company.

Challenge

Importing, processing and selling meat constitute an extremely complex and delicate chain, especially in view of the need to keep under constant control the origins of raw materials, their quality, processing and packaging and, finally, their shipment to distribution channels. "Even before the law on lot traceability came into effect" states the company finance manager, Manlio Congiu, "we paid careful attention to the origin of our raw materials, part of which we buy in Italy and part of which in France. We operate under constant veterinarian supervision, checking every single lot to make sure all hygiene-sanitary requirements are met. In fact, we also serve many school and pre-school cafeterias, and feel fully responsible for providing them with healthy and safe food." This essential need is combined with a more purely commercial one, in other words managing the cash Food industry Case History: Industrial meat working Local Reseller: Media Center Cube (CA) register in the point of sale adjacent to the production facility. This involves managing sales offers, loyalty cards and weighing scales, which are all connected in a network. "It is essential to manage the multitude of data that is generated by this sector", continues Mr. Congiu. "Trends and indications on future opportunities can be extrapolated from sales data analyses".

Results

Mago is the "bond" between various management applications, enabling them to intercommunicate and therefore increase their productivity. "We currently use a number of report forms, some of which were created by our dealer. We use them, for example, to monitor carriers, vehicles and agents, exporting data to Excel worksheets to create graphs and trends," explains Congiu. New module functions like Magic Documents will certainly help us use and analyze data, that may also be easily consulted as graphs updated in real time. "We find Mail Connector extremely useful," continues Mr. Congiu, "even though at the moment there are only a few businesses that choose to receive shipping documents and invoices in electronic format. At present it is frequently used for dunnings, offers, etc. given its cost-effectiveness and delivery speed. As we have an ADSL line subscription, we're connected 24/7 and are not charged extra for e-mail." Reports are an essential tool for those who really want to monitor business processes and company performance. With Mago.net it is even simpler to keep everything under control, and to create business monitors that provide truly significant parameters for businessmen seeking efficient support for their strategic decisions.
