Infor software helped America’s original natural apothecary save $500,000

J.R. Watkins has been a pioneer in natural living since 1868, using only the finest natural ingredients in its diverse lines of personal and home care products, remedies, and gourmet extracts and spices. About 10 years ago, the company began to move from a direct marketing, direct-to-consumer model to a model that focuses on large retail and wholesale customers.

After an in-depth total cost of ownership review, Infor estimated that J.R. Watkins would save over a half-million dollars in the first five years using Infor’s cloud-based solution for food & beverage manufacturers.

J.R. Watkins replaced its legacy ERP system with Infor’s cloud-based solution designed specifically for food & beverage manufacturers. The company worked with Infor to build and execute an aggressive implementation plan that resulted in a smooth but rapid transition.

Key benefits:

  • $500k+ savings from moving to the cloud
  • 25% faster than anticipated implementation
  • $200k+ reduction in hardware refresh costs
