It has been an important initiative in our journey to become far more responsive and a real-time enterprise for our customers. We have begun our journey to become leaner, more agile, and a platform-driven business with much better and automated processes, mobility and insightful dashboards. Despite challenges of a complex, big-bang implementation, we have done well. We have got rid of high cost, legacy ERP and other systems which were holding us back, and now with this new cloud platform, we are looking forward to accelerating our growth and profitability.”
