The Challenge

Drowning in paper

Largo Foods produce many of Ireland’s iconic snack-food brands including Tayto, Hunky Dory’s, King and Perri. They found their auditing, documentation and reporting requirements were growing year-on-year. The paper based system they relied on was consuming more and more resources and yet the data produced was often inaccessible and inaccurate or incomplete. A re-think was required.

The Solution

Excited by ECAT’s capability

Largo began a search for the expertise and technology that would move them from their paper based system. We met with Largo and got a deep understanding of their needs. We demonstrated how we could re-create all their existing audits on our web based platform. We showed them a selection of the exact reports they were looking for and finally we demonstrated how they could easily and quickly create new audits themselves. Largo were excited by ECAT’s capability, chose us as their auditing partner and were up and running on their new system 5 days later

The Results

‘Simply a better way’

Largo started to experience the benefits of ECAT immediately. Repetitive data entry became a thing of the past. Managers got access to real time, highly accurate information. Largo estimate that even though their audits are now more frequent and more comprehensive they are spending at least 33% less time auditing and are spending close to zero time generating task assignments, escalations and reports. They also report improved productivity as production managers now have more immediate, accurate, detailed information. They also noted an immediate reduction in ‘non-conformances’ occurrences.

Immediate, very significant benefits for us. We couldn’t have dreamed up a solution that would better fit our needs. It’s remarkable how much work the system does for us.
