Challenges

  • Logiplex were looking for more control over monitoring of “interactions” to allow accurate financial reporting and cost calculation.
  • Stock / inventory management was increasingly more complex and accurate financial reporting was becoming difficult to maintain.
  • “On site” software meant that sales teams were not able to access accurate costing and pricing information when visiting customers.
  • Business information and periodic financial reporting was also becoming increasingly complex due to the difficulty in managing service “interactions”.
  • Serial numbering and supply chain management was essentially a manual process, which exposed Logiplex to an increased risk of human error.
  • Separate software solutions meant that financial reporting was disjointed and inaccurate, with duplication of data and numerous compatibility errors.

Solution and outcomes

  • Logiplex installed Central ERP® in 2014, centralising financial reporting, inventory management, CRM and Bills of Materials.
  • Purchasing efficiency is improved by allowing Logiplex greater control over their supply chain.
  • Accurate cost analysis and forecasting is introduced, allowing accurate and instant information for scheduling, service interactions and direct costs.
  • Serial numbering and supplier part codes are easier to manage, reducing quality control issues and product dispatch errors.
  • Cash flow has become easier to manage and control, with backward and forward performance reporting.

Testimonial

We looked around for a long time, trying to find a solution that offered everything we needed in one solution. Central ERP® offered all of the features we needed, at a fraction of the price we were previously paying for multiple, disjointed software solutions.
