The client used SAP as ERP but was concerned about high license and operational costs and had usability issues. The staff encountered difficulties with the utility of SAP modules.
Gateway Digital was in collaboration with this customer for Enterprise Platform Development. We implement an ERP system which automated sales, purchasing, inventory, manufacturing and financial business processes using Microsoft Dynamics NAV ERP solution.
We started the project with consulting, AS-IS analysis and identification of the reasons for failure in previous SAP execution. Our subject matter experts (SMEs) presented the gap-fit analysis to the customer with the implementation road-map. Thereafter a Centre of Excellence (COE) had been set-up wherein the deployed team implemented the ERP covering the following features:
Captured and managed all the transactions related to manufacturing, purchase, sales and finance
Automation of production activity through the system, for example- preparation of LOT card including barcode generation, production result input, etc.
Purchase and Sales Management with their validations and checkpoints
