Kokonut Pacific began in 1994, when founder Dr. Dan Etherington created a way for local Pacific Island Communities to produce commercial quantities of pure, natural coconut oil in their own village.
The company grew rapidly, but legacy systems were slowing it down. A proprietary software system was in use, which became resource intensive and reliant on a single staff member.
Kokonut Pacific made the switch to JCurve ERP in 2013 and hasn’t looked back.
As Kokonut Pacific General Manager, Castaly Lombe, explains, “JCurve ERP has unified our operations into one neat solution and enabled us to grow our capabilities across the Pacific. Comprehensive inventory control, streamlined financial management, and most importantly, customer relationship management tools have helped us grow markets for our producers across the globe.”
Ms Lombe says JCurve ERP helped navigate the complexity of the business, which manages five distribution channels: manufacturing; selling and supporting coconut oil presses; global bulk sales and distribution; domestic wholesaling and online retailing.
