Indianapolis, IN (PRWEB) May 10, 2011
Consona Corporation (Consona), a worldwide leader in providing customer relationship management (CRM) and enterprise resource planning (ERP) software and services for companies of all sizes, today announced that Discovery Bay Games has selected the Intuitive ERP solution to upgrade, integrate and streamline business systems in order to meet the needs of their growing business.
Discovery Bay, founded in 2006 by a few enterprising individuals, is a Seattle-based maker of award-winning and innovative games, puzzles, and tablet and iPhone Operating System (iOS) game accessories for all ages and interests. The company develops original content, and has also partnered with a variety of notable licensors, including The Smithsonian Institution, Saturday Night Live, Highlights for Children, and Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus to create licensed game titles.
As a relatively young organization, Discovery Bay had several solutions to manage their business needs. As their business expanded and projected growth estimates increased, it became clear that they needed to upgrade their systems and have a coordinated, streamlined, and integrated solution that could grow with their organization. This ultimately drove Discovery Bay’s decision to select Consona’s Intuitive ERP software to bring their operations to the next level.
“Upon viewing the capabilities of the software, I was immediately struck by Intuitive’s easy-to-use interface and functionalities that put all the relevant business information right at users’ fingertips in a straightforward, visual format,” said Darren Tuck, senior director of operations, Discovery Bay Games. ”I was especially interested in the solution’s remarkable flexibility that allowed it to be configured to meet our specific requirements.”
Discovery Bay is prioritizing the coordination of purchase orders, accounts receivable and payable, inventory, and other primary business systems as their first order of business upon implementing Intuitive ERP software. However, once these functionalities are fully operational, the company plans to utilize other features, like the CRM module, to take advantage of the wealth of customer information maintained by their sales department.
“The organizational benefits that we foresee from implementing Intuitive at Discovery Bay are hard to quantify when you’re looking at the leaps and bounds we’re about to advance in efficiency and inter-departmental communication,” said Tuck. “With the growth that we have on the horizon, streamlining our business systems is priority number one, and with this solution in place, we have every confidence that our business will continue to thrive and expand in ways that would have been otherwise impossible.”
“The leap forward that Discovery Bay is taking toward integrated systems and unparalleled access to business information sets the stage for a well-run organization that can weather growth and changes in the market regardless of the company’s size,” said Frank O’Nell, vice president of product management, Consona. “It is our hope with customers like Discovery Bay that the implementation is just the first step in a long partnership in which we enable them to continue making great products and ensuring satisfied customers.”
