For 15 long years, KLT Automotive had relied on the trusty ECC 5.0 system to power their manufacturing operations. But as the company continued to grow and expand, it soon became clear that their legacy system was no longer up to snuff.
In the fast-paced world of manufacturing, reports and data are a vital lifeline for any successful company. KLT had no shortage of daily reports that needed to be delivered to management, customers, and vendors alike. However, their current system was simply unable to keep up with the sheer volume of data that was being generated.
On top of that, KLT’s dispatch, purchase, and accounts processes were all in dire need of automation. The company knew that automating these critical functions would be the key to increasing productivity and maintaining their competitive edge.
With each activity playing a vital role in the manufacturing process, it was clear that KLT needed a solution that could monitor and optimize every aspect of their operations. That’s when the company realized that RISE with SAP was the answer.
Why RISE with SAP?
When KLT was evaluating ERP solutions, automation was a crucial factor that they considered. With RISE with SAP, they were impressed with the wide range of 3rd party interfaces that were available to them. They quickly got to work on implementing automation processes for Barcode and GSTN, which proved to be a game-changer for their operations. Currently, they are in the process of automating their ASN & Invoice process with customers, as well as the Goods receipt and invoice booking process.
One of the key features of RISE with SAP that they found to be incredibly useful was the Fiori or dashboard reports. This allowed them to easily pull reports in various layouts, without relying on junior staff members. Mid-level management was especially thrilled with this feature, as they could now gain insights into the company’s performance and operations without any delays or bottlenecks. With RISE with SAP, the client was able to streamline their processes and make data-driven decisions that would propel their business forward.
