Supreme International Limited is a market leader in the livestock feeding industry. As a global company headquartered in Canada, Supreme serves customers in Europe, Russia, Asia-Pacific, Middle East, Latin America and the Caribbean, as well as across the United States and Canada. In 2008, in response to increased demand for better quality and larger equipment for feeding cattle in both dairy and feedlot operations, the company expanded into the United States with the purchase of a 9,000-square-foot assembly facility located in Dodge City, KS.
The finance team at Supreme had been using spreadsheets to manage their growing fixed asset base which included manufacturing equipment, tools, and vehicles, but the restrictions of a spreadsheet system got in the way of reporting. According to Jason Marzetti who spearheaded the search for new software, "We hit the limitations of spreadsheets in depreciation processing; we needed a system that was customizable and had more functionality and better reporting and cost tracking."
After a comprehensive search for a new system that included a strict RFP process, the team moved forward with Real Asset Management's Asset4000 fixed asset accounting software. "We based our decision off pricing, the support offering, and the usability of the interface," continues Marzetti.
