Where it all began

A third-generation family owned and operated company, KLN Family Brands, is nestled in the heart of Perham, Minnesota. KLN Family Brands is comprised of Tuffy’s Pet Foods, owners of NutriSource, Tuffy’s Pet Treats, and Kenny’s Candy & Confections. Tuffy’s Pet Foods proudly produces quality food for our pets, whilst KLN’s newest edition Tuffy’s Pet Treats manufacturers both canned pet food and semi-moist dog and cat treats. Kenny’s Candy & Confections provides something a little sweeter, manufacturing confectionary products, including big brand names like Wiley Wallaby and Sweet Chaos.

With fifty years of growth, three generations of family history and national expansion, KLN remain committed to their community roots and hometown values. So, whether you’re seeking the best nutrition for your pets, or a sweet savory snack, the KLN family has got you covered.

Realising a need for change

Innovation is key in KLN’s world and innovation demands quick response times and fast implementation. KLN had leveraged IFS Applications to help improve efficiencies and support their growth, but upon further expansion it soon became clear that KLN was expanding at a rate that could no longer be supported by their current Warehouse Management System (WMS).

What is Transaction Builder?

Transaction Builder has enabled KLN to have freedom within IFS: designing the pages as they want, how the transaction flows, with multiple fields, creating unique transactions that they’re able to own. They’ve been able to show their end users that any transaction can be created, with a familiar look and feel, meaning the change hasn’t been as daunting and the on-boarding process less challenging.
