Walton on Thames, Surrey (PRWEB UK) 28 June 2012
To mark this anniversary, TVision has made a donation to Enotria’s chosen charity, Taylan’s Project, a charity set up to raise awareness and funds for Brain Tumour research in memory of Taylan Rawlinson. In addition, a bottle of wine was given to every member of staff at both companies, along with a note thanking them for their contribution to making this partnership successful.
In 2001, a team headed by Enotria’s Eileen Beadle was looking to replace Enotria’s existing bespoke system, in favour of one which could handle ever increasing quantities of data and complex requirements. Systems from 30 different suppliers were considered before the decision was made to implement Microsoft Dynamics NAV provided by Walton on Thames based Microsoft Gold ERP partner TVision Technology Ltd.
Beadle states “It really was the excellent combination of product and company. All concerned could see how Microsoft Dynamics NAV would be a superb fit to our requirements and that TVision understood our anxieties and requirements for the project.”
It was important that the changeover of systems was as seamless as possible and invisible to Enotria’s customers. Go-Live was set for 10th June 2002 and teams from both Enotria and TVision worked hard in preparation for the Go Live date. With getting the right order to the right customer at the right time becoming ever more challenging, it was important that the new system helped Enotria to maintain their high standards of customer service.
Post Go-Live Beadle commented “One of the first benefits that became apparent was that, with NAV people could follow not only what the system was doing but why. This greatly increased confidence which, combined with the absence of unnecessary manual work-arounds, had a positive effect on staff morale.”
In the 10 years since the initial implementation Enotria and TVision have constantly worked to explore the functionality available within the NAV system, and have been able to expand to include areas such as integrated web sites, integrated EDI, mobile access to information for the sales teams as well as many other areas. The next step is to start the process of planning the next upgrade to NAV 2013.
In the last 10 years Enotria has expanded its business nearly 3 times from £35m to around £100m. The number of people employed has doubled to 180. TVision, in turn has doubled in size over that period and established a very good reputation within the Wine Distribution industry, alongside other areas.
Richard Thompson, MD of TVision; “We said all those years ago that good systems last 7 years. However, with the technology that’s part of Navision we’ve been able to keep the software not just in-line with Enotria’s business but greatly expand the areas covered. It has been a pleasure for all of us at TVision to share in Enotria’s success, and we look forward to the next 10 years.”
