The Challenge

  • The reporting was a nightmare - very limited, no drill-down capabilities, and burdensome to create.

  • Their old software was not a complete business management solution and did not integrate well with other systems. 

  • The warehouse management system fell short of the barcoding and scanning capabilities necessary to track all inbound and outbound inventory transactions.

  • They needed an ERP software partner that could scale with them as their company continued to grow.

The Solution

  • Deployment of a full-scale ERP system for Financials, Distribution, and Business Intelligence.

  • Industry-specific solution for catchweights (to enhance sales order capture), logistics (including, load planning) as well as many aspects of pricing.

  • On-site consultants throughout the implementation to offer advice, training, and project management.

The Benefits

  • Reporting tools enabling Imler’s management to enter budgets per week and drill down to the product level per salesperson. Each salesperson now receives a weekly update via email on their actual sales compared to budget. Imler’s is now proactive instead of reactive to pricing and sales changes.

  • Automated sales reports sent via e-mail indicating the customers and items with a downward sales trend by defined periods. This enables salespeople to proactively call customers and try to identify any issues and make sure the products and service is satisfactory.

  • Auto-send customer statements and price sheets via e-mail and fax every Friday versus manually doing those procedures each week.

  • Being in the commodities business, Imler's deals with fluctuating prices. Orders that have been in the system that are not under contract now get re-priced automatically, if there are price changes.

  • Implementation of a warehouse management solution to reduce picking errors and increase the speed of picking and put away.
