Guida’s Milk and Ice Cream, a New England-based dairy, has achieved significant business improvements with Ross Systems’ supply chain management (SCM) system. Optimizing Guida’s forecasting capabilities and enabling the dairy company to meet a scan-based trading (SBT) mandate, Ross SCM has improved operational efficiencies and driven cost savings.

Ross SCM addresses two critical issues for Guida’s. First, the dairy needed a forecasting application that would handle all of the inherent variability in the business, capable of replenishing orders based on true demand versus previous order quantities.

Second, the SCM lets Guida’s meet the SBT mandate set by one of its largest customers, a major grocery chain. Enabling SBT--the process of using point-of-sale scan data to manage payment, promotion, and replenishment of products--was new to Guida’s, and the company faced a tight deadline.

With Ross SCM, Guida’s saved more than $4,000 a month by eliminating the need for special deliveries based on inaccurate forecasting.
