Lyons Magnus is a leading food and beverage manufacturing company, with over 150 years of success in the industry. Lyons Magnus develops more than 1,400 unique products, and sells and distributes them to nearly 1,500 different customers worldwide.

However, the company lacked efficient technology solutions and processes, leading to a lack of visibility into inventory and numerous challenges throughout the supply chain. Lyons Magnus operated a legacy sales order entry system that interfaced with an SAP enterprise resource planning (ERP) platform. Employees maintained several manual processes and were required to reconcile information between the two systems. The company decided that it required a new, more efficient technology solution.

After evaluating several software solutions for food and beverage companies, Lyons Magnus turned to RSM based on recommendations from Microsoft, as well as a strong history of providing effective technology solutions for industry peers. The RSM team understood Lyons Magnus’ unique needs, as well as the challenges within the food and beverage space, and implemented a Microsoft Dynamics® system which included RSM’s solution accelerators for food and beverage.

Following the Microsoft Dynamics implementation, Lyons Magnus has made significant gains in forecasting and planning capabilities. The amount of data and analytics that the company can now leverage has enabled more efficient processes and more informed decision-making. In addition, the Microsoft Dynamics system has enhanced Lyons Magnus’ lot trace processes, allowing the company to quickly target raw materials and finished goods if a problem arises.
