GAINING SPEED AND EFFICIENCY
Eugène Cloutier is a company that has been manufacturing moccasins, slippers and mukluks since 1945. From design to manufacturing, all of their products are created and assembled in Quebec, Canada.
Unparalleled service and an accurate inventory allow Eugène Cloutier to respond quickly to customer requests.
AN EFFICIENT SYSTEM TO REDUCE MANUAL DATA ENTRY
The company was struggling with the time required to process and fill orders. This also involved a lot of data duplication. The company started searching for an ERP solution and found the SAP Business One solution. While looking for a supplier to help implement the software, Eugène Cloutier discovered a trustworthy partner: Forgestik.
“Finding an ERP solution was a challenge in itself. At the time we were looking for a new system, there seemed to be few offers for companies of our size. We’re delighted to have crossed paths with the Forgestik team!” Luc Lauzon, Vice President of Finance and Co-Owner.
SAP BUSINESS ONE: A COMPLETE AND INTEGRATED SOLUTION
Working as a team, on both Forgestik and Eugène Cloutier’s side, the processes have been greatly streamlined. Unlike the previous solution used, SAP Business One is a comprehensive solution from finance to customer service, and includes ordering, shipping, invoicing, purchasing, receiving, returns, inventory and manufacturing operations.
Many benefits have been achieved, especially in terms of customer orders, shipping and invoicing. The speed with which orders are processed has resulted in improved customer and employee satisfaction!
”It’s astounding how far we’ve come! We’ve evolved from a manual work model to an almost fully automated model.” Luc Lauzon, Vice-President of Finance and Co-Owner
