After a record year where we saw 50% growth in our business we realised it was time to improve our manufacturing control system. The aim of the project is to help us continue this trend and to support Walker Bros towards even more potential growth. After many meetings, discussions and considerations with various software vendors throughout the UK our chosen ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) Software will be SAP Business One 9.1. The lengthy project will be running throughout 2015/16 financial year with an anticipated go-live of March 2016.
To help us implement the system is Manchester based APH Computers Ltd whom we have a growing relationship with and are more than happy to have them guide us through the process. Like all new IT projects we know it won’t be a walk in the park but the reassurance is that we are taking a step forward to allowing even more growth in the years to come.
What will this mean for you, the customer?
We feel that by consolidating our processes (and ditching the various excel spreadsheets) in to a single piece of software, we will be able to forecast our capacity better and deliver things faster to the customer at more competitive prices.
