About Elmer Candy
Elmer Candy Corporation is one of the most successful chocolatiers in the United States. Its sweet confections, primarily boxed chocolates, are sold at retailers across the country, including Walmart, Costco, Kroger and Target.
The majority of Elmer Candy’s sales occur during the Valentine’s Day, Easter, and Christmas holidays. In order to adequately meet the demand of each season, Elmer Candy must accurately forecast sales, ensure adequate supplies of raw ingredients, and then efficiently craft, package and distribute its goods. Miscalculations and inefficiencies are costly, and to avoid them Elmer Candy chooses to invest in its technology infrastructure.
NexTec implemented a full suite of tightly integrated business management solutions, including: Sage X3 financial, distribution, and manufacturing suites; Sage HRMS; Cyber Recruiter; Insperity TimeStar™; Sage Payment Solutions; True Commerce EDI; Solver BI360; and a complete RFID system.
“Think of Elmer Candy as the homeowner, and of NexTec as our general contractor—they locate the best-of-breed solutions, coordinate their implementation, and ensure they meet our business objectives,” explains Wiley. “Throughout the process, they’ve listened to us, and responded to our concerns.”
