Lascom today announced that its CPG Solution has been selected by field-to-formula driven, natural products company, RFI, LLC to facilitate its demanding certification process and assist R&D teams in new product development.

San Diego, September 22, 2015 Lascom works with local and global companies to help them to better manage new product development (NPD), product specifications consistency and product lifecycle (PLM).

RFI’s extensive network of manufacturing facilities in North America, South America and China provides customers with multiple natural product ingredient solutions worldwide.

RFI’s motto “Field to Formula” fits with the company values and the core business of providing their customers with superior quality products and turnkey solutions.

As they have shown tremendous growth, RFI recently adopted a new process to better manage new product development and more specifically the product specifications. Through Lascom’s solution, the R&D team is now able to provide specifications consistency throughout the product development and quickly provide technical datasheet information to their customers.  They have improved time to market and reduced errors due to manual data inputs by automatically generate product information, using customizable templates.

RFI, LLC is eager to forecast costs while developing new products. The formulation tool provided by Lascom allows the company to elaborate formulas, either from an already-existing product or from scratch, and to benefit from cost estimation, nutritional value and product weight in real time to optimize formula as much as possible. The feature, especially created for FMCG companies, assists RFI in better managing products (creation, updates, etc.) and generating ingredients statements, allergens and claims.

We place high importance on our products’ quality,” said Chuck Frederickson, Controller, from RFI, LLC, “We have to comply with and meet the stringent food safety standards and requirements set forth by national, local and industry bodies including a certificate of analysis (CoA) attached to each product batch to ensure quality and consistency of products”.

Lascom’s PLM solution provides a central repository to gather data, documents and other information about both new and existing products, offering a “single version of the truth”. This implementation provides the ingredients company with tools to outperform competition in terms of quality and reactivity.

Jil CROQUET, U.S. Marketing Manager at Lascom explains, “Through our platform, RFI documentation and certifications such as CoA are automatically attached to products, enabling effective information searches, updates with impact analysis and distribution to customers. We are extremely proud of collaborating with RFI to assist the company in better fitting their customers’ needs”.

RFI and Lascom are working on integrating the PLM to RFI ERP to fully exploit both functionalities and benefit from an extensive service.
