Problems faced before implementing ebizframe
The client was using Sage Pastel for Finance and a locally developed software for Sales which was not integrated with Finance. Most of the core functions like Import, Export, Manufacturing, Warehouse Management, etc. were operating manually and posed difficulty in retrieving accurate information.
The client decided to go with ebizframe ERP as it was having ready solution for the Beverage Industry which was running successfully in its group companies as well for other verticals.
Modules opted by the client
The client automated all the departments of the 3 business units: Baby Foods, Breakfast Products and Carbonated Drinks. Initially they focused on automating the Beverages Units for Sales, Purchase, Inventory, Finance, Production and Production Planning. The other 2 units manufacturing Baby Foods and Breakfast Products were taken up in the next phase of implementation.
