Challenge

Penn Elcom Group has grown significantly through various acquisitions. Companies coming on board become part of the internal supply chain and need visibility through accurate, timely financial reporting. The company often transfers stock between its various entities and warehouse locations, which required multiple entries into different systems. With more than 15,000 products, it made for a complex and potentially error-prone situation.

Solution

Penn Elcom Group selected Sage X3 as the business management solution that it could extend to all its companies, worldwide. Sage X3 provides the necessary scalability to meet the company’s growth plans, provides the manufacturing functionality it needs, and offers the multinational functionality to support its global operations.

Results

Sage X3 provides an international solution that is multi-company, multi-language, multi-currency and multi-legislative. The company now has a single, consolidated system that provides a unified source of operational and financial information, with group-wide visibility. Time-consuming manual processes were eliminated, leading to improved productivity. Inter-location transfers have been streamlined. Sage X3 will scale to support Penn Elcom’s growth ambitions.
