When demand and revenue surged, Baidyanath's siloed applications made it difficult to support informed decision making. After implementing Lighthouse ERP latest version in 2014, all levels of the firm gained access to business-critical information and detailed visibility into costs by product categories Schemes, Regions and across distribution levels . With greater transparency and a clear vision, Baidyanath decreased its costs by five percent while consistently innovating research driven wellness products for consumers.

Inventory valuation and reporting
Baidyanath had periodic new product releases and there was a need for an efficient tool to manage demand and supply for these products. Baidyanath also wanted to provide a single platform for supply chain planning across product categories, and enable system-driven accounting and booking from sub-ledgers to general ledger globally.
Baidyanath already had Lighthouse ERP Inventory and Sales Modules for its supply chain operations.
"Baidyanath is looking at several sales offices and depots and saying the same thing. They’re just taking it up a notch. If they go in with an attitude that there’s not going to be resistance and pain, they’re going to be disappointed."
The Lighthouse solution
The Lighthouse approach to implement its Oracle based ERP application reduced process complexities and achieved process efficiencies for Baidyanath. This resulted in better supply chain planning, which in turn reduced stock-outs and improved inventory turns. Lighthouse also improved the efficiencies of warehouse operations through automation in packaging in key warehouse locations and super distributors.
Migration from Earlier Oracle platform (for both applications and database) was a challenge, which was made simpler by our approach. The latter helped in reducing the system’s maintenance cost for Baidyanath.
The Lighthouse solution helped Baidyanath in adhering to uniform practices for supply chain planning and procurement. It also enabled system-driven accounting globally by setting up a multi-organization environment with each plant location having its own charts of accounts. Overall, we streamlined the manufacturing, distribution, procurement, and financial accounting processes for Baidyanath.
