Multiple Systems and Inconsistency
Berteks was using a local system (can we give the name of the technology) which can’t support them correctly and they couldn’t update them with the new releases and changes in the technology. They started to search for more UpToDate, more functional and easier to use program.
“Since we don’t have an integrated system, there were problems between the departments, as an example; finance, bordro, HR and sales were using different problems and we were getting different reports from different departments and thus we have problems and our efficiency was low.
Berteks has to have one specific program that has the ability to track from receiving the order to the exit of the manufactured product, the ability to have the correct data from the production process, the ability to calculate the cost and efficiency correctly, to make the best planning and having the integrated accounting and human resources.
Berteks had the problem that due to huge developments and using different systems, programs were so slow,
“Everyone seeing the same data, having the same report and going to the conclusion from the same data. That is where the earnings”
No special modifications
It has never been an easy process for the workers moving from an ERP system to another, users have to adapt the logic of the new system. There must be detailed trainings from their previous MRP logic to their current ERP logic. This is what Berteks faced with.
As b4dynamics our main approach is to stick with the standards as much as possible, with Berteks that was also necessary for them to be on the same roof of the program and not to have any unnecessary adding not to have any burden later with the system.
Life changing program
“Managing the big picture is the most important benefit of ERP. Especially reporting modules have to be working smoothly so as upper managers we will be able to see the benefits of ERP. With AX2012, we have all the processes integrated, our business is working more efficiently and faster.” Is the wording of the upper manager of Berteks.
With AX2012, Berteks had the ability to have the internal audit, systematically everything/everyone is doing their duties on the same time and best way obeying the system correctly.
“With the world’s biggest ERP provider Microsoft and b4dynamics’ being strong, global and trustworthy approach we used our choice as b4dynamics. And we had a lot of positive comments from other textile companies about b4dynamics as references, which is so important in our sector.”
