SSi Limited case study
Bread is a modern diet staple. It’s also a low-cost consumer item, and makers must sell high volumes to profit from low margins. Industry technology provider SSi (Systems, Software & Instrumentation Ltd) has provided business management systems to bakeries for more than 20 years. SSi developed SSi Baker (aka Baker 2000), an end-to-end JADE-based financial and administration package for the baking industry. SSi helps bakers work smarter, not harder.
Large-scale bread making is a well-oiled machine, which usually starts around 2:00 am. Traditionally, the IT process is managed by custom-built Windows applications, but bakers don’t like all the mouse clicking required to enter data. Still, they struggle on, but at what cost?
Using JADE technology platform, SSi developed SSi Baker, which adds significant customization to existing baking systems. Bakers view real-time information, including sales, stock levels, and order fulfilment. Other modules include creditors, ledger and payroll.
JADE’s single language, integrated database, object-oriented design model, and rapid development methodology made development quick and easy. JADE Smart Thin Client technology obviated workstation upgrades and eased rollout on existing infrastructure.
SSi Baker’s graphical interface is keyboard driven. Thanks to real-time data consolidation, automatic reporting, and general ledger functions, SSi client Rivermill Bakeries has sliced a week’s worth of work from its accounts department, every month.
