Olitalia is an Italian company specialized in oils and vinegars. They offer a wide range of products both through the retail distribution channel and in the catering sector, where it is the market leader in Italy.
Olitalia – 130 employees, a turnover of around 180 million euros and two production plants that produce over 98 million liters per year – is present in over 120 countries around the world today. In recent years it has significantly expanded its international presence, now reaching markets in every continent.
In 2007, Olitalia’s expertise in the dressing universe led it to create a new facility, Acetaia Cremonini, which reconciles high-technology solutions with traditional methods and further expands the group’s already significant offering.
The partnership between Sinfo One and Olitalia began in 2003 and in 2007 it extended to the newly formed Acetaia Giuseppe Cremonini.
The partnership covers all processes that go beyond automation: administration, sales, production, warehouse logistics and inventory, etc.
The focus of the partnership is to support the constant growth of the company both on the domestic and international markets. Objective that declines in flexibility, certainty of the data, speed of information, traceability, production efficiency and in the management of the triangle formed by inventory management, productivity and customer service level.
The ERPs of the two companies have been combined in a single “container” in order to manage the group’s data, improve internal processes and create more automatism between the companies
The approach is the same that characterizes all Sinfo One projects: strong teamwork, an excellent knowledge of the typical problems of the customer’s business and ability to use innovation as a lever to support the business.
The main advantage of Sinfo One’s ERP is providing an accelerator of core functions, such as sales, logistics and production planning.
The addition of the MPS MRP modules has brought significant efficiency advantages in the production lines and a substantial improvement in terms of management of the ‘stock-productivity-customer service level’ triangle. Flexibility and productivity have increased and the management of finished product stocks has been improved, reducing the financial commitment. It is possible to make the most of the production plant: in a few minutes you can generate multiple scenarios, re-elaborate the plans by modifying the production policies or choosing one line over another, and then choose the most performing scenario.
The exchange of information between departments has improved. This also lead to greater commercial efficiency with customers.
The present challenge is to integrate the ERP with more specific information on production and on machine performance, with accurate real-time data.
