Three questions for Alain Ricque, Northern France Regional Sales Manager

“This is the tool that was missing from the profession”

A trained baker, Alain Ricque lent his baking expertise and assisted in developing the Lesaffre Solution Expert software. He tells us more about the software that the Baking Center and Lesaffre France’s marketing and sales departments spent two years working on.

Is it all about experience when it comes to using the right bread improver?

An improver is a technical product, carefully selected for its properties and performance. This is much like how a doctor, after making a diagnosis, prescribes a drug for a desired effect. And this is why Lesaffre Solution Expert is very useful not only to craft bakers, but also to the sales teams of our distributors. The former deserve to have the top tier of our improver range, thanks to advice given in seconds.

What was paramount for you in developing this software?

Simplicity and speed! Above all, we wanted to make the technology accessible, with an intuitive and user-friendly approach. After giving some information on what they make, users just have to follow the steps in order to find the improvers they need, which are identified according to their performance indicators: a top choice, followed by a few other suggestions. “It really is the tool that was missing from the profession.”

What does this software offer in addition to a fine-tuned and accurate diagnosis?

Performance information is given on every improver recommended: bakers are not necessarily aware of all improver properties or how to choose one that combines anti-bird’s eye properties with relaxing capacity. Lesaffre Solution Expert means that all improver characteristics can be consulted on its product description, which can be downloaded from the software.
