Riosulense meat packing plant reduces development time with GeneXus

GeneXus was selected due to its advanced technology

After more than 60 years in the Brazilian market and 15 years in the international market, Frigorífico Riosulense is one of the most important companies in the agro industrial sector. Its products are distributed under the brand names Pamplona, Saudável, Paraná and Riosul.
In 2005, they needed to implement a new ERP system. “We had a very basic infrastructure, with a server based on UNIX/RISC. The system could not be easily integrated, and it was difficult for us to hire staff skilled in Dataflex, the tool we were using,” explains Rosane Marzall Lippel, IT Manager at Frigorífico Riosulense.
The possibility to generate various databases, the use of a single tool to develop all solutions and its ability to evolve were the main reasons that led Frigorífico Riosulense to adopt GeneXus, distributed by BXT –Business Xtreme Technologies– to develop the new ERP.
The solutions developed with GeneXus are used by approximately 200 of the company's 1,600 employees, divided between the two meat packing plants located in the State of Santa Catarina. “The modules were partially implemented and the previous system was gradually replaced. New modules that were not included in our previous software have been developed and made available with GeneXus,” comments Ms. Rosane Marzall Lippel.

The sales automation module is one example. According to the IT manager, “from all the solutions available for sales automation, we selected this tool because it offered the possibility to develop a mobile version.” In this way, we avoided the need to customize a solution to the company's rules, as well as monthly maintenance costs. “It was the best decision. With GeneXus we have obtained excellent results. For example, we've reduced the time needed to develop and integrate applications,” highlights Ms. Lippel.
