Bangkok, Thailand (PRWEB) September 28, 2006 –-
Geoprise Technologies announced today that Ansell Limited (ASX:ANN), a global leader in healthcare barrier protection, has successfully implemented the pilot phase of its worldwide quality and compliance initiative using FlexNet® applications from Apriso®, the U.S. maker of software for product supply operations. Ansell's initiative is designed to institutionalize high quality standards and cost-effective compliance across all of Ansell’s operations and markets. The system is now up and running at Ansell's plant in Melaka, Malaysia, which manufactures surgical and examination gloves. Geoprise collaborated with Mustang Technologies of Bangkok to author, test and deploy business processes for the plant's packing, irradiation, warehousing and shipping operations, which ship over 200 million pairs of gloves per year to healthcare professionals worldwide.
"The involvement of Geoprise and Mustang was crucial to the success of this project," said Peter Holman, Ansell's Director Information Services for Asia. "Their participation added considerable value above and beyond what we customarily expect from system implementers, including rigorous testing, performance monitoring, system tuning and round-the-clock support after the new system went live."
"Geoprise and Mustang brought in-depth knowledge of FlexNet applications together with many years of industry experience," added Azfar Hassan, Ansell's Information Technology Manager for Malaysia. "They proactively offered numerous best-practice recommendations which greatly benefited our project team, and gave us fresh insights on how to streamline and improve our supply network operations."
