Expedite Operations with an Inventory and Order Management System

Trifecta helped Carlo’s Bakery navigate an unprecedented surge in sales with a strategic overhaul of their management systems, increasing productivity and reducing costs.

The Story

Background

Challenge

For the first 100 years of its existence, Carlo’s Bake Shop had little visibility into their raw materials and semi-finished goods. The success of TLC’s reality TV show ‘Cake Boss’ resulted in a huge demand and increase in orders. The bakery needed technology that would help them keep track of inventory, automate manual processes to digitally manage products and inventory, and a robust product catalog to provide consistent pricing and accurate data for all products sold.

The coordination of discovery, development, and deployment for a single source of truth was necessary to streamline operations.

Our Work

Strategy

Trifecta developed solutions on the Salesforce platform for an integrated product catalog, order processing, consultation/specialty cake order management, inventory management, and store replenishment. A custom Heroku-integrated solution provided bi-directional flow of product and order data between Salesforce and Magento eCommerce.

Working in conjunction with the Carlo’s Bakery design team, Trifecta developed an online consultation reservation solution that provided Carlo’s consultants with customer information before the face-to-face consultation appointment.
