Case Study: Chicago Local Foods
Background: In 2015, Local Foods expanded to a dedicated facility to support their growing wholesale food distribution business and to open a new retail public market with full service grocery, cheese counter, and whole animal butchery.
The Challenge: Local Foods was primarily relying on accounting software and spreadsheets to manage their purchasing, inventory, sales, and reporting workflows, but had quickly run into limitations with scalability. To support their new expansion, the organization needed an enterprise wide solution to help manage their business.
The Solution: Following a clearly defined methodology, Autolyze worked with the Local Foods leadership to better understand and define their business processes. With this foundation, Autolyze designed and implemented a comprehensive technology solution to support a successful launch of the new Local Foods facility.
