El Dorado Hills, CA — February 9, 2022

Blue Bell Creameries was founded in 1907 and has become one of the leading ice cream manufacturers in the country. Over the years, its operations grew and grew, eventually including four plants and fifty-seven distribution centers. With all this growth came several challenges, with one of their most pressing being ingredient traceability.

For some time, Blue Bell had been using the Oracle E-Business Suite 11i environment for automated data collection, but they decided to upgrade to Release 12 to overcome workflow issues and improve overall functionality. During the transition, the Blue Bell team discovered that Release 12 also created unexpected challenges.

To overcome the obstacles with the enterprise resource planning (ERP) upgrade, multiple operating systems, delivery logistics, and solution scalability, Blue Bell sought a software partner with robust, flexible, and customizable solutions. Blue Bell tapped RFgen and deployed RFgen Mobile Foundations for Oracle E-Business Suite, a powerful, flexible, and cost-efficient solution that could help them achieve their goals, including ingredient traceability.
