Blu Coffee Distributors Perks Up Business Performance

Founded in 2013, Blu Coffee Distributors has capitalised on the fast-growing Filipino appetite for premium Italian coffees. The company has grown from a two-person startup into a thriving business selling Essse Caffé coffee beans, La Cimbali machines and Da Vinci Gourmet sauces and syrups to more than 1,000 hotels, cafés and restaurants. To keep growth percolating, Blu Coffee needed to upgrade from QuickBooks and Excel.

Philippine Importer Gains Scale for Rapid Growth

Eliminating the grind of manual processes
NetSuite has eliminated the grind of manual work at Blu Coffee. Selected over SAP Business One, NetSuite lets Blu Coffee seamlessly manage financials and inventory and make informed, data-driven decisions. The company easily transacts in the Euro and U.S. dollar with international suppliers, and uses NetSuite lot tracking to monitor expiration dates for perishable coffee beans.
Supporting double-digit revenue growth
NetSuite has delivered breakthrough insights and efficiencies at Blu Coffee, supporting double-digit annual revenue growth without the high costs of manual work or additional personnel. Time needed to close the books has been reduced 300 percent, to 20 days, while a SuiteCommerce-based B2B portal is giving customers new ease and convenience through online product ordering.
Expansion to support the parent company
Building on success, Blu Coffee’s parent company, Panville Unique Distributors, is rolling out OneWorld as a unified platform for Blu Coffee as well as gas stations, a newly formed bagel distribution company and other interests. That lets Panville treat its multiple businesses as subsidiaries for seamless financial consolidation, improving efficiency, insights and growth.
