Heaven Hill Distilleries Makes Data-Based Decisions with IFS
Heaven Hill Distilleries, a family-owned beverage manufacturing and distribution company with Depression-era roots, brought its IT system into the 21st century. By investing in an ERP software system from IFS, the company achieved a variety of efficiencies, including dramatic reductions in both finished goods inventory and lead times on customer orders.
Just over ten years ago, Heaven Hill Distilleries rolled out its first implementation of IFS. Installing an integrated single ERP system enabled the company to quickly achieve a variety of business efficiencies, including dramatic reductions in finished goods inventory as well as reduced lead times on customer orders.
“Our whole company runs on IFS; it’s the backbone of everything we do. Without IFS, we would not be where we are today.”
