A SOLUTION TAILORED FOR A COMPANY GAINING MOMENTUM
Lovato Electric Corporation, a subsidiary of LOVATO Electric S.p.A. (Italy), was founded in 1922 and has been present in Canada since 2006. The company stocks over 1,800 electrical products for the automation and control industry.
Since its arrival in Laval, the company has experienced sustained growth. As the rate of growth accelerates, the shortcomings of the management system used are becoming more and more pervasive: slowness of the system, lack of communication between the different systems and insufficient functionalities to create detailed reports.
The list of irritants is getting longer and longer and there is not enough time to find quick and satisfactory solutions. Faced with these challenges, Mr. Jacques Lévy, President of Lovato Canada, is seriously considering changing the management system. The time of every employee had becom a very precious resource.
SAP BUSINESS ONE: A SOLID ALLY TO CONTINUE ITS GROWTH
SAP BUSINESS ONE: A TOOL TO DO MORE, FASTER AND BETTER
Quickly, the company estimates to have realized a time saving of 20% thanks to the automation and the integration of quotations and commercial agreements. Manual data entries have been greatly simplified.
By ensuring better control of deliveries, using BoyumIT's Produmex SCAN barcode reader solution, the company estimates that it has saved 10% in warehouse management time. “The software allows us to avoid many errors since all the required information is in the same place,” says Mr. Lévy.
Shortly after the implementation, new projects are created. The company plans to add a customer portal to reduce the number of calls and increase efficiency and visibility for the customer and for the company. Lovato is also in the process of integrating its website with SAP Business One. “I really feel like we’ve made major productivity gains. These gains have enabled us to use our energy to make the improvements that will bring the company to a new stage in its growth,” summarizes Mr. Lévy.
FORGESTIK : INNOVATING WITH THE RIGHT PARTNER
After evaluating several suppliers, Mr. Lévy selected Forgestik as an implementation partner. “Forgestik experts were present from the start of our project to answer our questions.” The expertise of the advisors, the know-how of the Forgestik team, the solidity and structure of the SAP Business One system were important factors in Mr. Lévy's decision.
Mr. Lévy has nothing but good things to say about the collaboration with Forgestik. “We've created a solid partnership based on trust. The response time has always been very short and the expertise was there from the beginning to the end of the project. There was also a concern for transparency. Forgestik was always transparent, helping me to be realistic in my expectations. I particularly appreciated the training workshops given to the employees. In just two weeks, we were all comfortable working with the software."
