Chocolate World and 4each have now already been working together for 10 years. Chocolate World is the world’s leading supplier and manufacturer of the largest assortment of polycarbonate moulds for chocolate makers, while continuously striving for the highest quality.
The company disposes of an ever-growing collection of no fewer than 1,500 different designs. A myriad collection of themes, in a variety of shapes and sizes to be transformed into polycarbonate chocolate moulds. Their widely-varied portfolio, ranging from the very traditional to more modern designs, guarantees that every chocolatier or manufacturer can find what they are looking for to express their passion for their craft.
A smart production company is one that constantly has up-to-date insights into inventory and planning, and that’s exactly what our custom software offers. Chocolate World has an exceptionally wide range of products, so investing in an ERP and MES solution for the factory was the wise thing to do. Each system brings something different to the table, and we aimed to make them work seamlessly together.
Together with 4each, they built one integrated system capable of covering all the requirements in one solution:
Sales and inventory management
Shop floor and machine data collection, which includes:
Complete transparency of the production processes
Less effort and fewer errors due to paperless production
Improving delivery in a timely manner and avoiding express transport
Shorter throughput times due to the reduction of downtime
General improvement in the quality of the data
Full traceability from raw material to finished product
Collection of quality data and recording of working hours
In a short period of time, use of our solution has resulted in higher transparency in production. Putting those insights to good use significantly improved productivity.
The collaboration never ends
At 4each we believe businesses underestimate the power of custom software development. In a world that’s constantly changing, you have to be prepared with a system to support your unique manufacturing operations. If you want to enhance existing processes and/or introduce new ones, custom software will give you the highest return on investment (versus off-the-shelf tools), because it is especially tailored to your company’s needs, employees and processes.
We’re keen to provide fitting solutions for small production companies to big manufacturers with multiple locations. Let’s find the perfect way to organise and manage your business processes together. For the long term.

Involving your employees
