Decades of experience combined with today's technolgy
Lapua Chains ltd. has signed a contract with Roima Intelligence Oy on the delivery of Roima Lean System enterprise resource planning solution. In practice, the system covers all the company’s key processes, such as sales, production, design and logistics. Special focus is naturally placed on giving a substantial boost to the company’s order-to-delivery process.
The problem with the old system was that it has very restricted functionalities and does not support mobile use. In addition, data is scattered across several systems which are not mutually integrated. This has resulted in a great number of double entries and, hence, in increased susceptibility to errors, states the company’s Product Development and Quality Control Manager Tomi Ulvila. Ulvila has high expectations for the new system, and as the system administrator, he will be following the deployment of the system very closely.
The aim of the system changeover is to streamline all operations, which will be perceived as increased delivery reliability and shorter delivery times. At the same time, the aim is to automate the processes of financial administration and, that way, achieve a better real-time view of the company’s finances. Automatization will also bring direct cost savings. Kristo Turunen of Roima Intelligence Oy states that an important advantage of Roima’s enterprise resource planning solution is its relevance to the manufacturing industry from the outset. According to Turunen, there are several systems on the market which can be tailored to fulfill the customer’s production control needs, but they are often targeted at other industries, such as trade. Extensive tailoring covering the key processes is often expensive and makes future maintenance more difficult.
