Case study: increasing sales in a struggling economy with ERP

Spanish manufacturer realizes immediate results with abas Business Suite

Karlsruhe, Germany, May 8, 2013 — Founded in 1992, Meritem is a Spanish foodservice specialist that offers paellas and pasta dishes under the brand name Paellador. In 2008 Meritem decided it was time for a change. The company selected abas Business Suite as their total ERP solution and chose the Spanish abas partner ABAS Ibérica to help them optimize business processes and structures. Meritem has had great success since the implementation of abas, and passes the benefits of their new ERP system on to their customers.

Implementing ERP in four months

During the abas Business Suite implementation emphasis was placed on the automation and efficient organization of the sales department, which processes more than 500 sales orders, logistics orders and reports daily. Close cooperation between Meritem and the ABAS Ibérica project team, which used abas’s 7-step global implementation method, abas GIM, resulted in a smooth implementation. The system was ready to go live in January 2009 after an implementation period of just four months.

Advantages for Meritem and its customers

The most significant advantage for Meritem has been the customer satisfaction that results from efficient processes and quick access to data to create reports and provide information. Meritem is the leading paella manufacturer in Spain, where the food industry is constantly growing. Thanks to the implementation of abas Business Suite, Meritem is able to save considerable costs and remain competitive. Xavier Herreros, CEO of Paellador, says of the results: “We have made tremendous progress!” Last year Meritem achieved a 16% growth in sales thanks to abas Business Suite. “In times of economic crisis, we have to make more with less,” states Xavier Herreros.
