Case Studies


Pepsico

PepsiCo is the world’s fifth-largest food and beverage company, with 15 brands — each generating more than $1 billion in annual retail sales.

We designed and developed a custom Maintenance Repair and Order (MRO) application to track and maintain PepsiCo refrigeration and fountain assets around the globe (Europe, Latin America, Middle and Far East). Smart Client solution replaced 50+ proprietary MS Access systems, and includes highly-flexible, dynamic reporting capability. Components include: MS SQL Server 2008, .NET Smart Client, and SQL Server Reporting Services, and 3rd-party Grid control.

Most of our facilities weren’t quite ready for SAP, but did require more sophistication and consistency than Excel spreadsheets could provide. Ultimately, we needed to connect key people and processes, all under PepsiCo’s best practices – which many commercially available software tools struggled to support.”
