Holiday Ice

Ice cream manufacturer Holiday Ice was founded in 1928 by the Postma family from Sint Nicolaasga in The Netherlands. The company was later taken on by the three sons of the Postma family. Initially the organisation was made up of three divisions: Holiday Ice, Holiday Horeca and IJspaleis. In 1999, the company made the crucial strategic decision to focus exclusively on retail customers. Holiday Horeca and IJspaleis were sold in 2003 and 2004 respectively, with Holiday Ice then at the heart of the business. The factory currently produces millions of hand-held ice creams for major retailers in the Netherlands and the rest of the world. As much as 75% of total manufacturing goes abroad to 22 countries including England, France, Scandinavia, Spain and Portugal.

The requirement

Holiday Ice is a growing company facing increased competition and higher raw material costs, which puts margins under pressure. Colleagues need real-time insight into centralised inventory information. In addition, there is a requirement for a more efficient process for dealing with incoming invoices.

The solution

In 2004 Exact Globe was implemented to manage the inventory better. In 2014 WMS RF was implemented for realtime and wireless inventory processing by using scanners. Synergy, in combination with Scan Sys, was also acquired for the processing of incoming invoices.
