“We’ve been able to reduce our inventory carrying costs by 30 percent–that represents nearly $500,000 in cash freed up.”

Challenge

The company was relying on an outdated accounting application along with separate quoting, scheduling and CRM applications that were both inefficient and labor intensive to maintain. As part of a lean manufacturing initiative S & S Hinge Company sought to replace three disconnected applications with a single, integrated solution capable of managing its accounting, manufacturing and quoting tasks.

Solution

Enterprise Management was selected from a field of five potential solutions based on its comprehensive functionality and competitive pricing.

Results

Enterprise Management successfully replaced three legacy systems, providing a single version of the truth, eliminating duplicate data entry, simplifying reporting, and improving data accessibility. Inventory carrying costs are down by 30 percent, which has immediately freed up more than $500,000 in cash. Inventory turns are up by 20 percent. The time to produce a custom quote is down by 75 percent. More than 100 customers were added in one year.
