Family-Held Company Gearing Up for the Future
One of the key focus areas for Esben and Polysan has been to invest in a new ERP system that enables streamlined business processes throughout the organization. And with SAP business ByDesign, a complete cloud-based business suite, they now have a system that gets the job done.
Spend Time on What Really Matters
As a manufacturer, Polysan needs an extensive overview of the different areas of the company. From order placement to production planning. From stock control to shipment. SAP Business ByDesign provides the overview needed and offers several easy-to-use features and tools that allow employees to work faster and better.
“With SAP Business ByDesign, we can now free up time by automating work processes that used to ve very time-extensive,” says Esben. “This is great news. Not only because it helps cut costs, but because it allows us to spend more time on what really matters: our customers.”
Full Peace of Mind in the Cloud
Before choosing to implement SAP Business ByDesign, Polysan considered a number of other ERP systems on the market. The key was to get a system that – as a minimum – would lift the production efficiency from the initial reception of goods to the final shipment of customer-ready components. However, with SAP Business ByDesign, Polysan got more that that. The company now has a system that lifts the entire IT operation across its different work areas.
“We have moved to the cloud with the latest technology. This means we now have a system that allows us to exploit the many benefits of digitalization, which will help us succeed for many years to come,” explains Esben, before continuing: “The system simply ticks all the boxes. This gives me full peace of mind and more energy to focus on our core business.”
Polysan started working with SAP Business ByDesign on December 2018 after a 3-month implementation phase. And while the system is relatively new, it has already delivered concrete proof that it will help the family-run manufacturer to streamline their daily work and seize future business opportunities.
