Kudler Fine Foods University of Phoenix Kudler Fine Foods KFF is a fast growing gourmet food store in the California area KFF has stores in LA Jolla Del Mar and Encinitas Kudler Fine Foods success revolves around superior customer relationships and minimal competitor presence Future growth plans are anticipated in the surrounding California areas A company website is scheduled to launch within the next year The addition of a website will help boost company profits and growth In order to meet project customer orders KFF will need to update many of the stores operating systems An update to Kduler Fine Foods networking and ordering systems will ensure the best customer satisfaction available while minimizing profit loss Ordering Many of the current store operations are paper based Restocking and ordering supplies is conducted manually by a store manager at each location A purchase order form allows each store to restock depleted items Kudler Fine Foods should update their ordering capacity by setting up accounts with online supplies A more efficient ordering system would allow Kathy Kudler business owner to better forecast her inventory Kathy has experienced some problems in the past with her current forecasting methods Spartan Stores a grocery distributer recently converted to SofTechnics Perpetual Inventory and Computer Automated Ordering According to the company the SAF SuperStore application automatically considers movement price promotions seasonality and other external factors in creating a single unified forecast for the store SKU Wireless News 1i 7 2008 Using an automated ordering and tracking system would save money and ensure Kathy meets her 95 customer service level Communication The addition of a company website will help keep the public more informed and expand store clientele A company website will expand advertising to reach a much broader consumer base Company information such as history and focus can help establish relationships with prospecting clients Company websites contribute to public retention and provide important resources concerning events news and company statistics I believe Kudler Fine Foods should outsource the development of the company website Outsourcing the company website development allows companies to take advantage of individuals who alone are experts at one or two pieces of the puzzle but working as a team have the experience to provide you with a comprehensive solution Gunther p 10 2008 Modern fullfeatured websites involve multiple technologies that can be difficult for a small group of people to develop Gunther 2008 Intranet Kudler Fine Foods has a well developed Intranet site The site keep employees informed of company issues statistics and current developments KFF s intranet site also creates an environment where Kathy can monitor company progress The use of the intranet has proven to be and efficient method of sharing information among Kudler Fine Food stores The intranet provides the entire Kudler Fine Foods staff with upto date information regarding company operations Intranets provide a central location for internal corporate information the interface helps organize documents create context and enable interactive elements such as bulletin boards feedback forms and provide a knowledgesharing method for all employees Lee p 8 2001 The use of Kudler Fine Foods intranet has contributed to business success and company growth I believe intranet has been valuable to the success of business process at Kudler Fine Foods Conclusion Kudler Fine Foods has quickly established its company s presence in the La Jolla California area The addition of an advanced company website that permits customer ordering will be a positive reinforce to company expansion Communication has and will remain an integral part of Kathy Kudlers business success Updating the company s ordering system will have positive effects on forecasting and profit loss associated with overstocking Company growth should meet or exceed Kathy s current expectations in a thriving economy The continuing use of the company s intranet coupled with Kathy s active participation will do well
