Sinner Bros. & Bresnahan (SB&B) is a family-owned, large-scale agribusiness that produces, processes and supplies food grade products worldwide. From preservation of food integrity to high-tech processing of diversified food lines, SB&B's focus on uncompromising quality enables the company to meet the extensive demands of the global food market.
SB&B's diverse operations are managed from its 4,700 acre North Dakota farm, which has been in existence for more than 100 years.
Sinner Bros. & Bresnahan (SB&B) administers multiple business units from its North Dakota headquarters, and each entity manages a large volume of information that ranges from food product quality and accounts payable documentation to customer records and vendor agreements. The company realized it needed a formal enterprise content management (ECM) system to more effectively manage this information, which had been stored and organized in physical folders and file cabinets for more than a century.
"The ability to administer our files and records electronically from within a central location was the driving factor in our decision to transition to a formal ECM solution. Our goal was to implement a system that enabled our staff to access the information they need from their desks – rather than having to get up and walk to file cabinets"
said Chad Bresnahan, CPA at SB&B. "Unfortunately the first system we selected and deployed was difficult to use and didn't live up to our expectations, so we soon realized we needed to go in another direction."
