Erin Baker’s is more than just a food company, it’s a family working together to cultivate healthier and happier lives. Since 1995, the company has been baking breakfast foods utilizing nutrient dense ingredients like Oats, Fruits, Nuts & Seeds as primary ingredients. Today, their Vegan “portable bowl of oatmeal” is more on trend than ever.

Erin Baker’s was rapidly growing and needed a robust tech solution to better manage their operations. They had extensive needs that varied across the organization; managing their financials, manufacturing processes, credit card management, quality assurance, cost analysis and custom reporting to name a few.

The company decided to move over to Sage X3 with another vendor. Although it was the right move, they were “unable to utilize the system to its full potential”. A short while down the road, the company was at a crossroad, either covering the implementation and training gaps or switching out to another ERP. They hired a new Chief Information Officer who identified the high potential of the existing platform, and how it was currently completely underutilized by their in-house team. That’s when Erin Baker’s hired Panni and completely turned around their operations while saving a lot of costs that may have incurred as a result of switching platforms.

Panni quickly got to work and coupled with it’s deep industry and technical knowledge, streamlined the Sage X3 configuration and set up the right business processes. In the second stage, Panni’s experts trained the Erin Baker’s team with its train-the-trainer framework. The company saw instant results in multiple areas of their organization.

  1. Streamlined financial month-end close processes
  2. Enabled cost tracking by configuring manufacturing processes 
  3. Setup processes for stock count procedures
  4. Setup Material Requirement Planning to better understand inventory
  5. Enhanced the security of the platform by integrating with Office 365 for single sign-on purpose
  6. Configured advanced price structures to better assist with price complexities


The Erin Baker’s team saw instant results which enabled them to not only run a more efficient operation on the backend but also provide a more streamlined service to their customers because of this shift.

We engaged Panni for our SAGE X3 ERP optimization and extension project. Panni’s team has demonstrated a deep knowledge of the Food industry and enabled Erin Baker's to leverage the full benefits and power of Sage X3 and obtain real process and cost efficiencies.
