POST FALLS, Idaho (PRWEB) January 27, 2023
HydroSide Systems is surging ahead and growing their business with their recent implementation of the cost-effective web-based business suite; Cetec ERP. With Cetec ERP, HydroSide was able to achieve a total web-based solution for inventory control, traceability, and quality management.
Established in 2017, HydroSide Systems is a family owned Idaho-based company that provides precision agricultural technology to improve the lives of farmers everywhere. Their award-winning and patented irrigation systems are meant to simplify wheel lines and automate hose reels so farmers’ crops get the right water at the right time. As a new startup, HydroSide was mostly using spreadsheets and Quickbooks before they quickly realized they needed an ERP to track and manage their documentation and purchasing.
Though HydroSide looked at various ERP systems to implement, they ultimately chose Cetec ERP for its cloud-based capability and overall consistency. Tracking, purchasing, and documentation was all made infinitely easier with Cetec ERP’s straightforward processes. When comparing Cetec to other ERP choices, HydroSide liked that employees at Cetec ERP were reachable, personable and customer-service driven. HydroSide Supply Chain Manager Bryan Butcher says that he appreciates the documents section in Cetec ERP, as it is a vast improvement over other ERPs he’s worked with in the past.
“My favorite thing about the Cetec ERP system is the documents section. That was one of the biggest drags of my last company working with their system. With Cetec it’s very easy to keep track of things. The work order will literally have everything on it. Everything’s linked, every part’s linked, all the material for certifications can all be linked. It’s just so much easier with all the documents being linked compared to my last job. It’s just fantastic.”
Working in person with Cetec ERP’s COO Taylor Wagen, Butcher says that implementing Cetec was quite easy and intuitive. After learning the system, any time that Butcher couldn’t figure something out, he took advantage of Cetec’s numerous how-to videos and reference material online and reached out on Cetec customer support forums if he was having issues understanding how to better improve a process.
Now Butcher himself conducts training classes for HydroSide employees on how to use Cetec ERP; demonstrating how to do work orders, manufacturing, clocking in and out, etc. Butcher says he’s slowly introducing more and more of the Cetec features so that everyone in the company has a better understanding of everything the system can do and jobs it can handle.
“I believe that the time we invest into Cetec pays off. Especially when it helps improve the accuracy around the shop for a lot of our data. Especially purchasing and logistical data. I think it’s worth the investment. It’s been amazing.”-Bryan Butcher, Supply Chain Manager at HydroSide Systems
