IFS, the global enterprise applications company, has announced that Pukka Pies, the independent UK pie manufacturer, will implement IFS Applications™ 9 to improve planning and support business growth. Founded in 1963, Pukka Pies is an independent family company based in Leicestershire. It makes over 69 million pies and pasties every year. Traditionally selling to outlets including chip shops, butchers, bakers and sporting venues, Pukka Pies has transitioned into retail and now sells to most major supermarkets and local convenience stores.

The move into retail has caused greater variances in production volumes however, and Pukka Pies was looking to replace its legacy business software with a system that could more closely measure its production processes and inventory management across its UK operations.

With IFS Applications 9, Pukka Pies has access to a single streamlined ERP solution that will enhance traceability of its supply chain, improving its ability to manage production. IFS Applications 9 will reduce the amount of duplicated paperwork while also enabling immediate reporting on company balances and inventory, a significant improvement for auditing processes.

Pukka Pies needed a new system that would future-proof its operations, improve planning, and cope with business growth. IFS Applications offers a full breadth of ERP capabilities meaning that instead of integrating additional third-party software, Pukka Pies can implement further IFS solutions to adapt to growth or changes to the business.

“IFS Applications is a great fit for Pukka Pies; the integrated payroll and HR systems were a useful addition for us, and something we didn’t see in other vendor offerings. Ensuring user buy-in was also important, as this is the first ERP system we have implemented. The system was received well internally thanks to its intuitive user interface that was easy to navigate,” says Andrew Wormald, Business Systems and Process Manager at Pukka Pies. “In IFS we have found an organization with a similar culture to us and, with a product like IFS Applications that is subject to continuous research and development, we’re excited about the potential it will enable for our business.”

IFS UK Managing Director Paul Massey adds: “Pukka Pies is a great example of a British family-run business that is looking to future-proof its operations. IFS Applications will improve efficiencies across the organization, helping it to meet current demands and provide a solid foundation for Pukka Pies’ business growth.”
