London Bakery Delivery Management System

Delivery management system provides London bakery with solid foundations to support business expansion

West London based bakery supplier, Boulangeries de France, has recently transformed in more ways than one with the installation of a fully integrated delivery management system followed by an exciting new business acquisition.

Boulangeries de France supplies authentic French and European baked goods to restaurants, hotels, convenience stores and coffee shops throughout London. With the business growing from strength to strength, Managing Director, Thierry Cacaly, identified the need to implement a system to integrate all areas of the business, increasing accuracy levels and reducing the amount of paperwork and manual entry carried out by his office staff. Thierry knew that once this solid foundation was in place, he could continue to grow his business in line with his vision to operate one of the UK’s most successful bakery providers.

After extensive research to find a solution for the bakery business now and in the future, Thierry selected Mobile Enterprise Systems to implement the tried and tested M-POS system. Thierry comments on the reasons for selecting the M-POS solution; “It was essential that we found a system that was scalable and that could continue to manage our business before, during and after the planned expansion. With the M-POS system we were able to select the modules that we needed at the time of installation with the option of adding additional modules as and when required”.

The M-POS system was implemented earlier this year. With the new system, incoming sales orders are received and processed automatically, the goods are picked using the wave picking module then allocated to the drivers. Proof of delivery is recorded with a signature being captured directly on the handheld computer and the only printed document is the customer’s invoice, printed by the driver using a handheld printer. The completed order data and proof of delivery can be sent back to the office in real-time, providing Thierry and the office team with an immediate report of completed orders by driver. Boulangeries de France can now proudly say that they are operating an almost paperless zone with streamlined administration and far greater business insight, as well as saving a huge amount of time and most importantly, substantially reducing costs.

Kieran Graham, Managing Director of Mobile Enterprise Systems Ltd comments, “Thierry is fanatical about achieving excellence throughout his business; he has extensive industry experience having previously worked for Delice de France and he conveys a real drive to move his business forward. The implementation of the M-POS system at Boulangeries de France has highlighted Thierry’s commitment and passion to ensure that he has solid foundations in place in order to continue to grow his business and to ensure that his customers receive the highest levels of service”.

Shortly after the M-POS system went live, Boulangeries de France acquired Mantinga, a specialist frozen bakery distributer, transforming the business into a national operation with additional depots across the UK and an extended fleet of delivery vehicles.

Now that all operations at Boulangeries de France are fully controlled by the M-POS system, Thierry and his team can dedicate time to fully understand the Mantinga business operation before rolling out the system into all additional depots, allowing M-POS to manage the entire business providing ultimate transparency and business insight. Thierry also has plans to launch a new website with an online ordering system which will also be fully controlled by the M-POS system, further demonstrating how Mobile Enterprise Systems can continue to support the company as they continue to grow.
