Cloetta wished to manage their complete process in-house and was looking for a cutting edge, albeit user friendly platform. The goals were to improve process efficiency, enforce a cost cutting program as well as to secure that spend was managed in a sustainable manner. Cloetta also had ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certificates, and they needed to ensure that compliance levels were upheld as they were audited by customers and certification bodies several times per year.
