The Honest Kitchen went through a significant growth spurt in which their employee count increased, and their transactions and revenue expanded considerably; in 2010, thanks to a loyal customer base and innovative products, the company was positioned for further revenue growth. The Honest Kitchen’s leadership wanted to pursue a more profit-driven strategy – without sacrificing product quality.
The Honest Kitchen quickly settled on implementing SAP Business One, as this would accommodate their aggressive growth strategy. However, The Honest Kitchen didn’t get the gains they expected from their new system. “We were only using Business One at a rudimentary level,” explained Postins. “We weren’t taking advantage of its capabilities for system rationalization and integration with third-party, value-added systems.” In mid-2010, The Honest Kitchen management sought help from an SAP Business One partner that could help them obtain the most benefit from their ERP system.
