How does selecting the right ERP Software by the Operations Lead move the needle forward to success? Here are some success stories.
Chad Treadwell, Vice President of Operations, FSC Lighting
Challenge: A very complex supply chain, with vendors spread all across the globe. Chad Treadwell soon realized, “Sage DacEasy was an older system … and it didn’t incorporate MRP and warehouse management and the rest of the manufacturing process. There were no inventory locations, and there wasn’t any accountability. The warehouse manager would bring us a list of things he thought we might be low on, maybe, to order.”
Solution: Charged with the responsibility of improving operational efficiency, Chad realized that FSC needed a millennium friendly and user friendly system. The answer was cloud-based Acumatica. The company has reported tremendous improvements in company operations, since onboarding Acumatica. As Treadwell emphatically says, ““Having Acumatica, JAMS, and Scanco integrated allows us to manage all our inventory from a single location.” Moreover, invoice generation has been streamlined. Overall, Chad comments, “Acumatica has brought us so much more control over our business.”

Francisco Pardo, Operations Manager, P’kolini
Challenge: The Company’s legacy ERP system did not have the capability to track inventory. Also lacked third-party software integration abilities. As Pardo says, “We had multiple software applications keeping track of different things. It was hard to maintain all that from an IT perspective. It was very complex.”
Solution: The Company decided to migrate to cloud-based Acumatica system that eventually brought in unprecedented operational efficiency, saving the company $ 80,000 a year. Benefits have been immense. First and foremost, automation of sales has generated considerable savings for P’kolini. Second, errors have been reduced by 75 percent. Pardo sums up his experience with Acumatica in a sentence, “Acumatica is an integrated solution that has helped us improve all the processes within our business and integrate all the pieces of the puzzle—from CRM, to warehousing, to sales inventory, and orders. Everything is under one umbrella. The value of that should not be underestimated.”
