“As it is an integrated solution, SYSPRO allowed us to shift from just doing daily tasks to performing meaningful analytics so that we can measure our changes and see the results.”

Customer Profile

A family-owned business, Ken’s Foods was established in 1958 out of a restaurant called Ken’s Steak House in Framingham, Massachusetts. The restaurant became known for its delicious salad dressings, and today Ken’s Foods manufactures over 300 products across its retail and food service industry product lines.

The Mission

The Ken’s Foods leadership team realized that the company required a system with the capability to scale in line with its ongoing growth.

The Solution

The team looked at a number of systems before selecting the fully-integrated SYSPRO Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution.
“When we looked at the features, functionality, modules and capability that were brought to the table, as well as the interface our staff would be using, we felt that SYSPRO was the better fit,” says Art Sebastiano, Chief Information Officer of Ken’s Foods. “Quite simply, it was the purest food manufacturing product on the market.”

The Outcome

With the integrated SYSPRO solution, Ken’s Foods is able to slice and dice information, and this leads to recommendations for operational as well as strategic enhancements. With the previous system, this was difficult to achieve.

“We can now do analysis around where and how information is being consumed, what the associated costs are, what improvements can be made, how to measure our changes – and then see the results.”
