Case Study

Svenhard’s Swedish Bakery

Svenhards Swedish Bakery is one of the largest family-owned independent bakeries in the United States. As Svenhard’s principal technology partner for nearly ten years, Datapath has been instrumental in the design, rollout and maintenance of Svenhard’s technology systems.

Svehnhard’s still does business the old fashioned way. We use fresh ingredients and prepare our pastries with careful focus on the old-world processes that still make our product great. But that doesn’t keep us from baking millions of pastries each week, many of which are loaded into Svenhard’s trucks and delivered direct to grocers across Northern California.

This vertically integrated business model means we produce the best tasting packaged pastry on the market. We can ensure quality and freshness because we control the product’s entire lifecycle.

When we started working with Svenhard’s in 2003, they were using IBM AS400 green screen computers. They didn’t have an email address, let alone resource planning software for handling complex logistics.  The green screen computers were antiquated and hard to use so much of the business was still run on pen and paper.

We needed modern infrastructure. Datapath installed servers, deployed Windows workstations for our sales and office staff, and rolled out software for accounting, human resource, dsd accounts receivable, order processing, payroll and inventory management. Datapath shepherded the transition as painlessly as possible, moving as quickly as our tremendous learning curve would allow.  They helped us see value where we were missing opportunities to gain efficiency, and provided invaluable insight that helped us avoid many pitfalls along the way. Our office staff immediately became more productive, and with the ongoing support and training that Datapath provided, we soon gained a level of efficiency that was completely unmatched prior to their partnership.

Once we had modern technology infrastructure in place, we could tackle the larger business challenges. Datapath worked closely with Svenhard’s to understand the vertical nature of the business and identify processes that could be automated and streamlined.

We determined that managers should be able to quickly analyze invoices from the drivers and adjust production accordingly, with automatic revisions to ingredient orders, baker hours, delivery schedules and so on.

We evaluated dozens of products and eventually identified a software package that could meet Svenhard’s needs. We then worked closely with the vendor to customize the implementation and add additional modules.

Datapath’s logistics solution transformed our business. Allowing us to streamline staff, and scale our operations to precisely meet the actual demand for our products, which dramatically reduced losses associated with overproduction, and missed opportunities from underproduction. We also save an enormous amount of management hours that were previously spent producing reports, crunching numbers and making decisions. Now we let the data do the work.

It’s been nearly a decade since we implemented this technology overhaul and our infrastructure is still going strong. Datapath listened carefully and got it right on the first try. This investment has proven to be massively profitable.

Once Svenhard’s technology infrastructure was running smoothly, we implemented a Managed Service program to provide ongoing maintenance, upgrades and user support. Svenhard’s doesn’t have a single dedicated IT person because we serve as their remote IT department. When users have a problem, they simply call or email and we can usually resolve the problem remotely. If the problem is more serious we’ll dispatch a technician to make an on-site repair.

Datapath is our soup to nuts technology partner. We nearly always entertain competing quotes, but to date we’ve consistently chosen our proven partner for any major technology project. That’s because Datapath’s prices are always competitive and we know they get the job done right and stand by their work.  We’ve learned over the years that these guys can be counted on to deliver more than just what we ask for, providing holistic solutions and addressing questions we didn’t know to ask.

If you’re looking to hire an IT company, I can heartily recommend James, Dave and the entire Datapath team. And that’s not because I like them (though I do), but because they understand the needs of businesses and perform at the highest level.
