V&V Supremo Foods Selects Microsoft Dynamics 365

Merit Solutions, a provider of global supply chain solutions based on the Microsoft Dynamics 365 platform, announces today that V&V Supremo Foods, Inc. (V&V Supremo) has chosen to implement the Microsoft Dynamics 365 platform.

V&V Supremo is a 50-year old Chicago-based producer of premium, all natural, and authentic Mexican style food products. Throughout years of steady growth, the company adopted numerous business systems. These disparate systems increased ongoing IT costs, inhibited growth, and lacked data consistency.

After evaluating Microsoft Dynamics 365, SAP, and Infor, V&V Supremo ultimately chose the Microsoft Dynamics 365 platform due to its lower total cost of ownership, increased flexibility, streamlined implementation, strong product roadmap, and the integration between ERP, CRM, BI, IoT, and mobile capabilities.
