Durban, South Africa, September 11th 2018 – Merlog Foods, has successfully completed the implementation of the Fendahl Fusion CTRM, after a 3-month software implementation project.
Merlog is a consumer-packaged goods manufacturing and distribution business headquartered in Durban, South Africa. Founded in 1994, Merlog has grown to hold a significant presence in fast growing African CPG market and holds a number of leading consumer brands.
Before implement Fusion CTRM Merlog used a mixture of procurement systems and semi manual processes to support their commodity procurement. The continued rapid growth of the company meant that this combination of systems and process were no longer fit for purpose. As a result, the Merlog management decided to run a competitive CTRM systems evaluation.

Merlog chose the next generation Fusion CTRM solution because Fusion offered a superior level of flexible CPG commodity procurement and trading functionality and a low long-term cost of ownership.
