THE COMPLEXITIES THAT CALLED FOR A CHANGE!
Prior to adopting RODE, Srinisons was using stand-alone IT systems for managing its various business functions.
This made it difficult to have real-time visibility of the overall inventory (especially finished goods). As the inventory was maintained manually, tracking the stocks, doing raw material planning and work-in-progress (WIP) management were some of the gray areas that required streamlining. Valuation of stock on a real-time basis based on raw materials and finished goods' status was also not possible. Besides, the manual system was prone to errors, which added to the complexity.
Hence, Srinisons required a comprehensive and integrated online solution which would address the above challenges and aid the company in having real-time visibility over its entire supply chain. “We needed a solution that would enable the management to track the supply chain management process and maintain profitability margin for all the sales orders, across regions,” enumerates S Kesavan, Executive Director, Srinisons.
THE ROAD AHEAD FOR RODE
After internal deliberations, considerations, and an elaborate survey of available options in the market, the company decided to opt for RODE. The solution would fulfill the company's process-level requirements without burdening it with heavy upfront investment.“What we liked the most about Ramco Systems was that they offered us just the features we needed for our business—that too at the right cost,” avers Kesavan.
The company implemented modules such as Book Keeping, Discrete Production, Inventory Management, Accounting, MIS and Reporting, Payables and Receivables Management, Purchase and Sub-contracting, and Sales and Shipping.
The whole process of implementation and going live with the new system was completed in a short span of 8 weeks. “Ramco made it all achievable because they had a ready template, which had all the business functionalities we required,” reveals Kesavan.
