Consumer Product Industries
Our team designed, developed, and implemented an integrated multilingual global based business system to control all of our client's manufacturing, accounting, A/P, A/R, G/L, purchasing, inventory, sales administration, and quality assurance requirements. This project involved integrating all these processes using an existing datawarehousing systems, MFG/PRO, SAP ERP System, and Internet reporting applications. In addition to developing this system, Infomedia's team compiled security procedures and process documentation, created a standardized functional and application specification process, and consulted upper level management on appropriate corporate IT strategy.
Infomedia designed an integrated manufacturing and financial software system for our clientto increase the turn around time for the processing and manufacturing of orders, and to increase the efficiency of their Accounting Group. Our team for this project included 10 Programmers that developed a library of 1200 programs on an IBM 3090 mainframe. Through the use of a 4 G/L (Progress), the project was completed and implemented in 9 months, ahead of schedule and under budget. 900+ users are currently successfully utilizing this system. Our client has seen many benefits from the implementation of this system including the following:
- Lead time on purchase orders reduced from 2 weeks to 1 day.
- Implemented use of computerized Bill of Materials in Manufacturing.
Eliminated double entry of invoice data by Accounting.
- Reduction in on-hand inventory by 5 million dollars.
We developed a Purchasing System that interfaced with the AMAPS MRP package, and replaced a manually entered system with the ability to cut and paste orders from the MRP package.
Infomedia also designed and implemented a Cost Transfer System that would cost out all transfers between contracts. Integrated this package with the Purchasing, Inventory, and the AMAPS MRP Systems. Replacing this manual system for Finance reduced the number of necessary staff and cut costs.
In addition to developing these systems, Infomedia's team prepared a System Architecture Overview for the company. This project required that all computer systems be documented with their function, description, owner and data passed between systems. A five year plan was developed by our Systems Integration Group on how to reduce duplicity and streamline corporate systems.
We assisted in the establishment of the Corporate System Methodology Life Cycle Handbook for the monitor control and timely implementation of new systems. The effects of these new systems has cut our client's costs in the following areas:
- Reduced the number of financial analysts from 45 to 12 for a 3 MM annual savings.
- New purchasing system reduced the cost of developing a purchase order from $125.00 to $15.00.
Organized and coordinated the conversion and integration of all business systems from an obsolete environment to a new, state-of-the-art environment. Customized a new application and trained employees in the use of the new and improved systems. Defined custom solutions for business process re-engineering needs for the company's Planning/MRP Group.
Developed and customized a Multinational Integrated ERP Application that manufactured commercial digital print presses. This web based system also allowed customers to order materials and consumables online as well as pay orders and open invoices via credit card. Significant systems integration was developed to interface with other applications used by the company.
In addition, cutting edge development was successfully developed and deployed in the area of call management and customer support where field engineers would receive and manage and close calls via Web Browsers on Phones using WAP2 technology. This information as well as paging data was then uploaded real time to this new system to better manage customer service.
