Case Histories


Spreading the passion for the art of Italian artisan ice cream is the mission of MEC3 whose name today is protagonist in over 140 countries around the world. Founded in 1984 by Giordano Emendatori, since February 2014, acquired by the American Riverside Investment Fund, MEC3 has always been synonymous with high quality, world-class reference for industry professionals. An expanding company, which has had a growth capability in the past few years and which chooses Microsoft Dynamics NAV.

The production plant located in San Clemente - Rimini is organized according to the Lean Production method: an industrial philosophy that aims to minimize waste until it is deleted. Here comes the widest assortment of bases, neutral, pastes and varieties to produce the authentic Italian ice cream.

MEC3 has always been particularly attentive to dialogue with all its stakeholders, communicating actively and continuously with bothtrade the reference trade and the final consumer. Fascinated by the concept of 'Corporate Social Responsibility', MEC3 has created a brand to communicate the company's ethical philosophy: respect, which means bringing near seemingly far-reaching values like Ethics and Profit and discovering they are so good together to be inseparable. In addition, MEC3 also pays great attention to training through the prestigious MEC3 International School of Ice Cream. A school which does not just teach how to make ice cream, but it is committed to providing all the tools you need to undertake a successful path.

The project
The primary need for MEC3 is to get a native integration between ERP, WMS and SFC, to automate and to optimize the production plan with scheduling and sequencing, to perfect the management  of standard cycles, with the possibility of predicting alternative cycles and therefore variants of DB.  The commercial sector must also be optimized and automated, in a context of international growth and development, with the ability to quickly activate and monitor promotions and sales canvas to support and encourage business performance.

The solution adopted to meet the needs of MEC3 is Microsoft Dynamics NAV. Industry type and business size meet perfectly the NAV's technological features to ensure a perfect functional coverage of all business areas, ensuring both the robustness  of an international product and a certain flexibility to adapt certain processes to a reality in continuous and rapid evolution.

At the moment the current phase is the testing and training one of the staff, as go-live is scheduled for January. The excellent work done during the analysis and design has led to the fact that both the unit tests and actual data tests have already given good feedback from the key-users about the benefits that the solution will bring when the system goes live.

When we select a supplier, we consider in particular the precision and quality of his work. We think we have found a reliable partner in the Logical System to work with to further improve and constantly monitor our daily business activities.

Our organization and the methodological approach inherited from years of experience and from consolidated methodologies sponsored by Microsoft itself, allows us to approach projects to ensure both internal results and customer satisfaction. Particularly in Mec3, the Logical System Team dedicated of about 12 people required strong organizational engagement to ensure the project's success in terms of specifications, costs and times.
