Swiss Valley Farms, a four-state dairy cooperative with 1,000 members and annual sales in excess of $300 million, has deployed Logility Incís Voyager Solutions to improve forecast accuracy and help the company expand into new international markets. Logility Voyager Solutions helps drive efficient sourcing and production by automating the complex process of predicting market demand.
Founded in 1958, Swiss Valley Farms has relied on manual Excel-based forecasting to develop production schedules, sales and marketing efforts, and provide executive-level reports. This process slowed the companyís ability to expand into new markets such as Asia and South America. Voyager Solutions will automate the forecasting process and enable Swiss Valley Farms to produce and distribute its dairy products in new international markets such as China.
Voyager Solutions provides quick access to reports and metrics that allow companies like Swiss Valley Farms to generate and track forecasts for multiple business needs including sales, marketing, logistics, and financials. In addition, moving away from Excel-based spreadsheets to the intuitive Voyager Solutions suite minimizes the potential for data entry and re-entry errors and boosts analytical insight.
Based in Davenport IA with about 1,000 members, Swiss Valley Farms has cheese manufacturing plants in Luana IA; Mindoro, Platteville, and Shullsburg WI; and a cheese packaging plant in St Olaf IA. It also operates two wholly owned subsidiaries, Rochester Cheese and the Caves of Faribault, headquartered in Rochester and Faribault MN, respectively. For more details, visit www.swissvalley.com.
