Omaha, Neb. (PRWEB) July 27, 2006
Swedish Match North American, a distribution and manufacturing division of Swedish Match AB, has selected WorldView LTD, to organize and simplify its document management needs.
Forward thinking business decisions have launched Swedish Match into a market-leader and global operation manufacturer of cigars, snuff, chewing tobacco, matches, and lighters. Selling in more than 130 countries, the company is best known in the U.S. for its Red Man, Timber Wolf, White Owl, and Macanudo tobacco products.
“We have had document management and enterprise content management (ECM) on the horizon for a couple of years,” said Allen Moore, Swedish Match business process manager, “however, the straw that broke the camel’s back was a recent acquisition. Along with the business, we inherited several hundred boxes of documents.”
After the acquisition, Swedish Match’s corporate headquarter hallways became lined with stacks of banker boxes and filing cabinets, serving as a constant visual reminder to executives of their future ECM plans. As paper overflowed and hallways narrowed, executives launched a robust investigation to locate a company with the experience and knowledge to satisfy their ever-growing document management needs.
“We looked at many different ECM providers and models, both hosted and in-house,” said Allen. “During our research, we came to the realization that we were not document experts, and we didn’t want to become document experts. We needed a company that offered the expertise and know-how to help us with our needs. WorldView offered us the robustness that we needed, at a fair price - we foresee meeting our ROI within 90 days.”
Because Swedish Match’s needs were so extensive, they chose WorldView’s hosted solution, offering the company state-of-the-art technology and unmatched performance, without the added expense of maintaining an in-house IT infrastructure or employing additional IT professionals.
WorldView’s installation and implementation process will include scanning more than one million archived documents and the automation of Swedish Match’s human resources and business control processes. Additionally, WorldView’s ECM solution will interface and improve upon Swedish Match’s two Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems, Oracle's PeopleSoft Enterprise application and Movex’s Enterprise Resource Planning software.
