Few products are regulated as heavily as baby formula and for good reason. As the first food that many babies consume, the formula needs to meet a high standard for safety. All ingredient and nutritional claims must be verified, and if there’s ever a problem, manufacturers need to be able to track and trace the source of the issue for a quick and efficient resolution.
They needed a complete solution that eliminated the long paper trail and lack of visibility that its legacy system created. And with a pledge for purity in contents, quality, sourcing, and testing, the company wanted a solution that could keep up with its mission and purpose, as well as regulatory requirements, without being bogged down by bolt-on customizations.
Nature's One® is a privately held company founded in 1997 and based in Columbus, Ohio. A pioneer in the organic nutrition category, introducing the first organic baby formula to the United States in 1999 under the name Baby's Only Organic®.
Ultimately, Nature’s One selected Deacom ERP because it is designed to eliminate the need for bolt-ons without requiring a compromise in systems. Deacom brings all vital information – from supply chain to inventory and everything in between – into one system. Instead of wasting time manually searching for items that could be anywhere in its facility, Deacom now enables Nature’s One to easily track every item received, its source, and where it is being stored.
Nature’s One began implementation in January 2012 and was fully live just five months later in May with minimal disruptions to operations during the process.
