“One of the main benefits of Indigo was the immediate improvement we saw to stock management and traceability. Although we always picked in rotation by best before dates, our products lacked a unique label ID. Since using Indigo it’s had a huge impact on our traceability and control management” Steven Purves, Supply Chain Director.

Lees of Scotland has been producing a range of iconic confectionery including snowballs, teacakes and meringues, since the 1930s.  An important local employer, the company operates from a purpose built, 82,000 ft manufacturing facility in Coatbridge, near Glasgow.  Now a £20m a year business, innovation is an important factor in the company’s continued success and the launch of a new range of nut and gluten free ‘Macaringues’, an allergy friendly alternative to baked macarons, demonstrates this. 

As a business with traditional values, Lees had previously managed some elements of its warehouse operation using a paper-based system.


This involved documenting in detail every item coming into the facility, its use within the manufacturing process and concluding with warehouse pallet references for the storage of finished goods and final destination locations, as products left the site for retail.
