Gummi Metall Technik is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of anti-vibration technology, producing rubber to metal bonded parts for customers in a variety of industries. The company has operated in Malaysia since 1980, with a local team of 186 employees.
Gummi Metall Technik was looking for an end-to-end business management solution that could support the company’s rapid growth. The company was using several disparate systems across its departments.
The lack of integration between these systems meant sharing and accessing information across departments required a significant amount of manual work, says Gummi Metall Technik’s Business Unit Manager, Sivanjothi K.
"We were previously using separate systems for production, accounting, purchasing and other functions. These systems weren’t linked, which meant we had to perform a lot of manual tasks."
"Our systems couldn’t keep up with the growth of the company. Since 2010 our sales more than doubled and our production capacity increased significantly. It was very difficult to control these individual systems."
To overcome these challenges, Gummi Metall Technik chose the full suite of Sage X3, allowing them to more efficiently manage financials, sales, purchasing, inventory, production, and warehouse management.
The implementation was conducted by Sage partner Dynamic X Consulting, who Sivanjothi praises for their dedicated support.
“The team from Dynamic X Consulting have been excellent. They have been very patient and supportive in helping our staff become familiar with the new software.”
Sage X3 has allowed Gummi Metall Technik to integrate its systems, helping the company save time and work more efficiently, says Sivanjothi. “I think the key benefit is integrating all our processes into one system. We now have an integrated system, from marketing to delivery. All our departments work together more efficiently and are no longer separate. This has been very helpful for us.”
“Sage X3 has helped us save a lot of time across our departments, including our purchasing and stores departments. The solution is completely integrated, so you don’t have to do everything manually.”
“It also helps us eliminate paper work. For instance, our marketing department no longer needs to print out sales orders, as the information is easily accessible and shared in Sage X3.”
