The early use of the ERP software from Central enabled the start-up vly, which specialises in food tech to bundle, all operational processes in one place. Well-thought-out products will always find a market – including the milk alternative made from pea protein by the Berlin start-up vly. In the first year after founding the company, the founders decided in 2019 to use the flexible ERP software from Central. A good decision, as it turned out.
Prepared For Growth With Scalable Software
Vly’s idea of offering a protein-rich, purely plant-based, sugar-free, and allergen-free milk alternative excited consumers right from the start. In the first year, the team processed 25,000 orders via the online shop and achieved sales in the mid-single-digit million range. Today, the products of the FoodTech start-up can be found in over 8,000 supermarkets. Also available in retail and wholesale in Austria and Switzerland. Vly also sells its drinks through its online shop and markets them in cafes, restaurants, and co-working spaces.
The three founders paved the way for this rapid success by using the ERP system from Central at an early stage. It was clear to them that more orders and new sales channels would bring success and sales and make their everyday work more complex. “With the software solution from Central, we have networked the various areas of our business – from inventory and shipping processes to accounting and customer management – in one tool. Thanks to practical automation, we save ourselves as founders and our employees numerous manual processes and avoid errors. This gives us more time to advance our product and the growth of our company“.
Process Optimization With ERP Software From Central
In recent years, Central has made a name among founders and start-ups in the e-commerce sector and the food scene. Thanks to recommendations from their network, vly quickly became aware of the ERP software from Augsburg. Although other systems were running, Central offered precisely the functions that the Berlin food tech start-up needed. The ERP software from Benedikt and Claudia Sauter has been used since 2019 and supports growth. Central is the central hub where all processes and all sales channels converge.
The goal of the three founders, to keep track of the processes in their start-up by introducing ERP and bundle orders, logistics, and billing processes in one place, was a success. By choosing Central, the ERP software could be adapted to the individual needs of vly. In addition, this has provided the company with the basis for efficient work ever since. As a central tool for all essential business processes, Central offers the now 50-strong team the necessary flexibility and stability for further growth, internationalization, and new product launches.
