Powering optimism in the Pacific Islands

Jcurve ERP: Simplifying Complexity

Kokonut Pacific began in 1994, when founder Dr. Dan Etherington created a way for local Pacific Island Communities to produce commercial quantities of pure, natural coconut oil in their own village.

The company grew rapidly, but legacy systems were slowing it down. A proprietary software system was in use, which became resource intensive and reliant on a single staff member.
Kokonut Pacific made the switch to Jcurve ERP in 2013 and hasn’t looked back.

As Kokonut Pacific General Manager, Castaly Lombe, explains, “Jcurve ERP has unified our operations into one neat solution and enabled us to grow our capabilities across the Pacific. Comprehensive inventory control, streamlined financial management, and most importantly, customer relationship management tools have helped us grow markets for our producers across the globe.”

Ms Lombe says Jcurve ERP helped navigate the complexity of the business, which manages five distribution channels: manufacturing; selling and supporting coconut oil presses; global bulk sales and distribution; domestic wholesaling and online retailing.

Business success stories: Kokonut Pacific

For the past 20 years, Kokonut Pacific has pursued one powerful mission: to empower and raise the wellbeing of rural communities of the Pacific islands through the production of premium grade coconut oil and products. Operating under a social enterprise model, Kokonut Pacific invests in and works with local communities to help them build sustainable enterprises, leverage new technologies and positively impact lives.

With its local partners, Kokonut Pacific manages diverse services, including coconut oil press manufacture, coconut oil production, organic and fair trade certification, quality control, storage and transport. They also export and market coconut products to bulk, wholesale and retail markets across the globe via their Niulife brand.

Working with complex infrastructure and multiple distribution channels, Kokonut Pacific needed a streamlined system to fuel their expansion while allowing them to quickly respond to growing market opportunities.
