International Spices Finds Its Recipe For Success With Netsuite

International Spices Finds Its Recipe For Success With Netsuite

For International Spices, a custom spice blender and distributor, a lack of integration between its Microsoft Dynamics GP and Sage CRM software was seriously limiting its success. Order management required separate entries in each system and sales reps couldn’t access the most updated information in real-time. The lack of end-to-end visibility into operations meant the business couldn’t ensure optimal stock levels or streamline regulatory compliance.
