New business processes for modern market
The Remit executive team decided to create a single information space across the production process accounting. The key tasks of the project included:
To accomplish these tasks, the implementation team chose to integrate 1C:ERP because of its flexibility, adaptability and a comprehensive set of automation functions for enterprises. For example, the factory had a production site for making spices, and it took only two days to adjust the system to its specifics and fully automate this site.
Absolute Soft company became a partner for this project as it had proven experience in automating meat processing enterprises. The integrators sought to use the standard mechanisms incorporated in 1C:ERP to preserve the system's integrity and simplify the process of updating and transition to new forms of regulated reporting.
The project implementation team knew perfectly well what to do, and it was decided not to draw up detailed project requirements to speed up the progress. Later, at the trial operation stage, a range of adjustments and improvements were made, which proved impossible to plan beforehand.
General solution for large company
The implementation was smooth, and the accounting department started working in the new system only two months after the launch of the project.
As a result, 18 business entities were integrated into a single information space: the Remit's factory, the trading house and the network of branded stores.
In addition, the implementation team created several types of automated workstations such as "Weighing", "Heat treatment", "Selection", and "Routing of Delivery". The information processed on these workstations was used as a basis for warehouse, accounting and manufacturing operations. The "Weighing" station processed a large amount of material intended for transfer to the next stages of production. "Heat treatment" was monitoring the process of heat treatment. At the "Selection" workstation, the customer order is assembled and the products are labeled. The "Delivery Routing" workstation provides distribution of products, and if there is underload or overload it is immediately corrected within 20 minutes.
The key project results also included:
Real-time cost control and monitoring of the entire production cycle
Comprehensive reporting for better management decisions
New ways to reduce costs – by analysing data of the production cycle
Increased productivity and quality of meat products
Reduction of product losses by 15%

Reduction of the defect rate – previously, some employees could hide defects, but with the new analytic reports, it became clear at what stages defects appeared and what actions must be taken to reduce them
Optimization of work with suppliers – due to the trackability of lots, it became easier to choose the best suppliers that delivered raw materials of the highest quality
Optimization of staff – with the new system, the company managed to optimize about 40% of the personnel involved in the process of movement control
