Bella Viva Orchards is a California based business that manufactures and sells dried fruit on both wholesale and retail channels.
We have supported Bella Viva Orchards for 4 years providing hands on assistance in much of their technology stack. In the last two years, we have spearheaded updating their ecommerce stack, moving from an outdated cart solution to Shopify. Key areas of concern were to minimize downtime, preserve existing customer accounts and automate importing product inventory. We implemented a fulfilment pick and pack order fulfillment system that ties together shipping, accounting online store management.
On the manufacturing side, we created a real-time app that their production team uses to manage costs for their fruit drying runs. This involve live tie-ins into their payroll & timecard provider, screens for inputting raw material usage and discard data for quality purposes. Ultimately the goal is to identify problems with runs as soon as possible to keep costs as low as possible and quality as high as possible. This solution was implemented using Microsoft dot.net on the backend and responsive front end design.
We also assist them with product photography, newsletter management as well as product placement with Amazon for both fulfilled by Amazon and fulfilled by Merchant orders.
