ELPOZO ALIMENTACIÓN has over 65 years of experience offering confidence and quality to millions of consumers. Dedicated to the production of fresh, processed and cured meat products, it forms part of Grupo Fuertes, one of Europe’s largest agri-food holdings. El Pozo has experienced constant growth, based on a strategy of reinvestment and continuous improvement.
The first steps involved:
After a thorough study, they decided to implement an intelligent Business Process Management suite (iBPMS) capable of orchestrating an agile workflow that would allow them to carry out complex processes involving many people and, at the same time, consolidating the processes across all the companies which form part of Grupo Fuertes.
With the implementation of the AuraPortal digital platform, ELPOZO ALIMENTACIÓN has successfully organized and centralized all the processes of Grupo Fuertes, empowering users with all the information they require in real time so that they can act as and when the processes require their intervention.
The implementation of AuraPortal in ELPOZO ALIMENTACIÓN includes three main operational processes:
The process begins with the collection of commercial data necessary for the design of the new product.
The first phase involves participation from several departments that analyze the viability of the project. If accepted, the process goes through different stages: sourcing of materials, machinery, raw material, packaging, cost controls, regulatory compliance.
Subsequently, approval and testing are reviewed by different areas before manufacturing commences.
It is used to launch products which are similar to existing products or to make modifications.
This process is similar to the first process; it involves a large quanlity of integrated tasks and documents, but the product may not need to go through all the stages.
The control stages will be determined depending on the defined conditions.
This process controls all the administration involved in purchasing new material and was launched in 2015. It is now used in all the companies that belong to Grupo Fuertes.
The growth in the development of new processes is due to the interest from the Management, the Grupo Fuertes team responsible for AuraPortal and the release of the AuraPortal “SAP Connector” module that have provoked a positive reaction, resulting in an increased level of user satisfaction.
"With the AuraPortal digital business platform, we now have reports that allow us to identify bottlenecks and indicators to continually improve our processes."
"AuraPortal has become the go-to product when it comes to organizing processes for all the companies belonging to Grupo Fuertes."
"We did not have any software of this type and it was imperative for us to find an iBPMS that would give us the power to design workflows quickly, without the need for additional programming and present results to users in a short space of time."
