An international kitchen equipment supplier driving digital growth through modernization

H+K are one of the leading manufacturers and suppliers of kitchen equipment in the world. Established in 1975, in Canada, H+K now has a global footprint with operations spread across UK, US, China, Ireland and Australia. Primarily serving restaurant chains, H+K’s clientele includes some of the biggest names in the industry- McDonald’s and Subway to name a few.

The Solution

Built an enterprise web-solution

Icreon worked closely with H+K to develop a web-based enterprise solution to manage their business operations. The solution allows H+K to manage clients and their access levels, build and maintain product catalogs, inventory, and process orders received. A comprehensive reporting engine has been built, allowing H+K to gain better business insights into their products and client behavior.
The legacy system was using a DB2 database containing huge volumes of product data. A middle ware was developed to allow for seamless data exchange between the DB2 database and the new MS SQL database. The solution also includes a B2B E-commerce platform for H+K clients to place online orders.


Tools & Platforms: ASP.NET, C#, MS SQL, OBJECTIVE C  


The Result

Streamlined order processing and enhanced customer experiences

With the successful delivery of the solution, Icreon has helped H+K transition to the web. The solution has done away with the pain areas of the old legacy system. Icreon is currently responsible for maintaining and upgrading the solution.
