A custom made application built from scratch to power the entire back office of Romy Foods
Romy Foods combines all the different elements through its network to achieve economies of scale and deliver a cost effective solution to the food service industry. The network includes food manufacturers from around the globe who source the best quality local ingredients to prepare different meals within traditional cuisines, companies specialising in unique packaging technology and regeneration equipment and logistics hubs that coordinate supply and demand of meals with our contract catering customers and other enterprises.
What did we do?
We analysed the way Romy Foods work and provided technical consultation on how we can convert their manual processes into a customised digital software solution through which all the different stakeholders can login in simultaneously.
How did we do it?
Through the Agile Software Development Methodology we made sure to involve Romy Foods deeply throughout the entire planning stages to create detailed specifications to ensure that there is no ambiguity in the requirements. We made use of flowcharts, video presentations to ensure we continuously collect invaluable feedback and ensure that the system is built according to their requirements.
Who uses the system?
The system is used by all the different stakeholders within their network, being the Romy Foods Head Office, Hubs, Manufacturers, Customers and Food Council Members.
To help support & maintain the project, a ticketing system was set up so that all key members of the project can report any issues / new features in a systematic manner.
We aim to continuously collect feedback from all the users of the system so that we continuously improve the functionality of the system whilst shaping it according to their user’s daily needs. The system has been under continuous development and improvement since 2014.

How did our solution help Romy Foods?
Increase Productivity & Efficiency
Manual processes have been transformed into a digital solution making it was easier and efficient to manage than sending manual emails, spreadsheets.
Improve Decision Making
Reporting tools & dashboard help Romy Foods and their users understand their data in an easier format to help them analyse how they’re doing.
The Romy Foods system is available 24/7 through any device, such as mobile, tablets or desktop giving them the possibility to work remotely from wherever they are.
Increase Peace of Mind
All the data is stored on the cloud and strict backup procedures are set up. This removes the need for Romy Foods to set up backup procedures within the office as everything is safely stored in the cloud and can be accessed from wherever they want.
Simplifying business processes results in employees having more time on their hand to to perform other tasks. Automatic validation also ensures that less double checking and validation is required and thus reducing staff requirements.
