Introduction

As Britain’s best baker, Warburtons are meticulous about their production standards and quality.

The Brief

Every aspect of their output, from packaging print quality to crust texture and density, is monitored, recorded, reported and benchmarked against their competition on a weekly basis. 

Traditionally this quality management process has traditionally been managed through clunky and ultimately now outdated methods. 

Significant manual work was required each week to record and share data using paper-based records, which sapped valuable time from team members and prevented the data from being immediately available to other business units.

There was also a concern that data captured in this manner had the potential to be incomplete or inaccurate, which would have detrimental a knock-on impact on reporting and analysis. 

For a company with standards as high as Warburtons, this potential for error was unacceptable. They came to Netsells to resolve this, quickly.

Our Process

Discover

We worked with Warburtons using intensive Discovery sessions to rapidly understand the lifecycle of their products and thoroughly ascertain their processes for recording and reviewing quality.

Design & Test

Following this review, we quickly designed, tested and implemented an updated mobile-based solution that allows data to be captured live on the production line using a robust, user-friendly in-app workflow. 

Integrate

We ensured all data is made available to other services through a RESTful API, enabling the entire organisation to immediately access and analyse quality across all key areas. 

The Results

Automated Reporting

With the introduction of accurate automated reports, Warburtons now have a solution that allows them to focus on baking.
