Antenova is multi-national company with offices and customers worldwide. Having a cloud-based ERP allows teams to operate as if they are in the same office. Employees throughout the world can gain real-time access to the financial and warehouse systems to check sales, backlog orders, inventory and other functions without any delay.
“When someone in a different time zone needs information, they just login into the system without waiting for the answer the next day,” says Ms. Lin. “Or, when Taiwan is on holiday, other offices can access the system to get the information they or their customers need.” Providing real-time information is critical to customer satisfaction.
Executives also have instant access to the company’s current financial status. Previously a complete financial picture was only available when data was transferred from one system to the other, which was a slow error-prone manual process.
The management team can also access critical information to track key metrics and generate reports to better analyze business operations and performance. Previously this was a complex and time-consuming job. With Acumatica the information is there at the press of a button 24/7.
“This integrated system has reduced the duplication work within the company, saving time as well as helping with our financial and ISO auditing,” says Ms. Lin.
For tracking our sales and design opportunity pipeline, Antenova uses Sugar CRM. With a common API interface, the next step is for Antenova to link both packages so that the sales forecast in Sugar can be feed real-time in to Acumatica MRP.
“Acumatica has made our financial systems much more efficient. It provides us one integrated system with accurate sales and revenue information providing detailed financial reports that will allow us to accelerate our growth.”
