Adonis Group: Expanding Canada’s biggest Mediterranean store
About the client
Adonis Group has multiple supermarkets in Canada that are influenced by Middle Eastern, Lebanese, and Mediterranean cultures. The stores display a large variety of products from around the world that continually satisfies customers' needs. The company's core mission is to explore international markets to identify original and unique products and new and exotic flavours and introduce them to Canada.
In 2008, Adonis originally had five stores and only one IT specialist overseeing all operations. However, they started expanding nationwide and needed a reliable IT partner that would successfully help them achieve their new goals. They contacted us at the beginning of their journey to help them deploy a strategic plan for their national expansion.
We analyzed the company's IT infrastructure to evaluate its operations closely and help them future-proof their business. Then, we showed them the different solutions available in Sage 300 and demonstrated our approach to test the compatibility of the solutions with the current systems. Finally, we deployed three customized solutions for the company: item management systems, operational and financial systems, and a production program.
Items management systems
We designed consolidation tools to help the company manage its growing stores. We created items from a single program and pushed them to all the stores. We also created specific values for each item to export to the POS system and align the store operations with the back-end IT operations. And to optimize their item management systems, we added a feature to push mass pricing. That way, employees could upload a file in the database with all prices, and they would automatically show up on the items afterward.
Operational and financial systems
When Adonis Group partnered up with Metro in 2011, it was becoming complicated to maintain the same operational and financial procedures in the store. So, we performed a business consolidation to reduce redundancy and inaccuracy. For example, we designed worksheets for inventory and a promotion system where the company could build up their promotions and easily export them to SMS. We also used the Extender add-on on Sage 300, which allowed the company to customize its weekly promotions and apply special prices. We helped their employees minimize their workload with custom tools in ways they didn't have to replicate operations anymore and could focus on other tasks. Regarding the financial systems, we created a tool to read data from the store to the consolidated company to reduce errors and increase efficiency.
Since every store has different products, needs, and requirements, we created a custom acquisition program that uses Sage 300 to identify the right quantities to produce. This program helped the company be more productive and use its resources efficiently.
We helped Adonis increase productivity in different ways. The company used to dedicate 2 minutes to create a single item, yet now it can generate 20 items in less than that amount of time. Similarly, adjusting 1000 products' prices would take 33 hours before, but with this new system, they can accomplish the same task within an hour.
