Indianapolis (PRWEB) May 16, 2012
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 at its Consona Connect 2012 user conference that Delta Shelving Systems (Delta), an Australia-based manufacturer of shelving and wire products, is a 2012 Summit Award winner for its use of Consona’s Intuitive ERP software.
Delta was selected due to the significant improvements the company has achieved across all facets of its business.
Delta used the Intuitive ERP solution to achieve the following results:
- Significant sales and engineering time savings, resulting in a 50 percent reduction in sales administration and processing overhead, while also seeing a dramatic increase in quote turnaround time
- Increased inventory visibility and accuracy, along with:
o Inventory reduction of 48 percent
o Current liabilities reduction of 18 percent
o Stock take variance reduction of 83 percent
- Improved production planning and scheduling, resulting in 10 percent reduction in indirect labor and 61 percent reduction in direct labor
- Significant reduction in the overhead for quotation and ordering processes as a result of Delta’s EXPRESSIT portal, used for more than 70 percent of order intake
- Increased customer satisfaction due to improved production and shipping processes (consistently delivering 100 percent in full, on time compared with previous average of 80 percent)
Due to the high degree of customization with its products, Delta used the Intuitive Advanced Configurator software in conjunction with the Intuitive ERP solution to drive these results. “While Intuitive ERP was found to be a strong solution overall, it was the strength of the Intuitive Advanced Configurator product and its ability to meet our requirements for high product customization that was a key driver in the selection of Intuitive ERP,” said Stephen Friend, Group Systems Integration Manager, Delta.
“We’re thrilled to honor Delta with a Summit Award at Consona Connect 2012,” said Jeff Tognoni, CEO, Consona. “The improvements the company has recognized across its business using the Intuitive Advanced Configurator and Intuitive ERP solutions are to be commended.”
