Challenges

Panova needed to:

  • Move all business processes to the cloud, so worldwide staff can easily access information and collaborate
  • Integrate with company’s online content sharing platform, Box
  • Reach maximum productivity
  • Move toward a fully green, paperless environment
"We are working towards a fully green environment and the fact that documents are at our fingertips, online and easily accessible, brings us closer to a paperless scenario."

ERP Solution

Ehren Dimitry, President and CEO of Panova (formerly AME), says: “We were incredibly excited about Acumatica Cloud ERP software, chiefly because it would enable the Acumatica-Box integration. We are talking about a single sign-on and being able to access and manage all the files we have in Box. We wanted our users to spend most of their time in Acumatica, while still getting the benefits of Box in a seamless, integrated experience.”

What enables that integration is Acumatica’s improved API, which means that it is much easier to customize applications. Gabriel Michaud, co-founder of Montreal-based Acumatica partner Les Services SiPD, worked with Panova to develop the Acumatica-Box integration. Michaud notes: “In Acumatica, we can create customizations which were not possible in the past. It is a very powerful tool.”

Outcome

The Acumatica-Box integration means that staff can access Box files within Acumatica, and vice versa. Any changes made on one platform are reflected on the other.

Previously, product test results were tracked manually using documents and spreadsheets. Now, the improvements in this area alone allow Panova staff to do their work four times faster than before, says Dimitry.

As a whole, Acumatica is also noticeably faster and easier to use. Screens open three times faster and the time taken to navigate between records is halved. “Previously, time was spent navigating to specific screens,” says Dimitry. “In Acumatica, the user interface is much more intuitive, better designed, and just much faster.”

“Acumatica is the backbone of our cloud environment. It has already changed the way we do things, improving efficiency, and there are endless opportunities for even more process improvements and productivity gains. As we do so, it will clearly strengthen our company in the long run.”
