Fridley, MN (PRWEB) March 07, 2012
Electric Motor Supply Company (EMSCO), one of the largest suppliers of used and refurbished electrical equipment in the USA, has recently completed an upgrade of its ERP System. The result was a significant improvement in the overall efficiency of its sales and operations.
As EMSCO was experiencing tremendous growth over the last few years, it was apparent that they were out growing their existing system. “We had been making the old system work by using a variety of work-a-rounds," said Joe Faust, Sales and IT Manager of EMSCO. “But we knew that with continued growth, our systems needed to improve.”
EMSCO was using a version the Microsoft Dynamics NAV and originally had concluded that they needed a completely new system. They brought in Business Automation Specialists of Minnesota Inc (BASM) to review their needs and recommend a solution.
After reviewing EMSCO’s requirements, BASM concluded that the NAV system was more than adequate to meet their needs; so they recommended implementing an upgraded NAV version and fixing the errors with the previous installation. The results were outstanding; several time-consuming processes were streamlined and EMSCO experienced far less errors. Overall the new upgrade improved inventory control, reduced lead time on quotes and improved customer service.
Joe stated, “We were very pleased with how smoothly the implementation went. We did the conversion over a weekend and we were up and running Monday morning with minimal issues. And since we were using the same software, we did not have to retrain sales and operations on a new system.”
With its systems and processes transformed, EMSCO believes that they are in excellent position to maintain its strong growth while continuing to streamline and automate its order fulfillment.
