Heering Lighart, Bravilor Bonamat
10 global branches
350 employees worldwide
Produce over 150,000 machines per year
International network across 100 countries
Bravilor Bonamat is a Dutch family business founded in 1948. They are a leading manufacturer of professional beverage preparation systems for hot beverages such as coffee and tea.
Bravilor Bonamat has 350 employees worldwide, with branches in Europe and the USA and an international network of dealers in more than 100 countries.
Bravilor Bonamat needed to improve their stock management and supply chain to cope with rapid growth and an increase in new product lines.
Existing manual stock management processes were not effective, resulting in stock deviations, inaccurate stock information and a significant administrative burden.
The company required a user-friendly, flexible and integrated ERP system, and a way to encourage existing employees to adapt to the new way of working.
WHY BRAVILOR BONAMAT CHOSE REDFAIRE INTERNATIONAL
Bravilor Bonamat chose Oracle’s JD Edwards EnterpriseOne following a year long selection process. The Redfaire International team was chosen for its deep JD Edwards technical expertise and familiarity with the manufacturing industry.
Their current system could not scale to meet demand for new product lines and stricter product quality requirements.
Bravilor Bonamat also needed a partner that could reduce the costs and improve the efficiency of their manual stock management.
They also had a lack of robust, user-friendly reporting systems. These systems did not allow for actionable data insights.
Deep JD Edwards ERP technical skills.
Required a partner who could improve flexibility & efficiency in production & stock management.
And who could improve customer experience and help them make more informed business decisions.
A ‘big bang’ implementation approach in the Heerhugowaard site was successful, with employees able to learn the system quickly. Bravilor Bonamat has rolled out the system to its branch offices across Europe.

The integrated barcode scanning system supports the reception of goods, the quality registration of goods and provides a seamless connection to the work floor. Full serial number tracing is also possible.
Completion reports are transmitted from production lines to workstations, informing customers of exact delivery dates, and helping the shipping company with effective scheduling.
This complex implementation project led to an increase in worldwide sales and profits.

Capi Europe operates in a market known for rapidly changing trends. Existing IT systems were not able to keep up with the data demands necessary to support efficient production and stock management operations.
The original schedule for this major project was calculated at six months. Redfaire International worked with Jumbo Group to create a project schedule with a two stage implementation, and dedicated teams for Finance, Purchasing and Sales modules.
