SoftBrands, Inc. (OTC: SFBD), today announced that Clover Technologies (Clover) has selected the Fourth Shift enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution to improve business performance across their Irish and European facilities.
Clover, a leading provider of compatible consumable printing supplies to the rapidly growing digital imaging supplies industry, has selected Fourth Shift to run its operations. The modular and fully integrated Fourth Shift system will allow Clover to safeguard and expand their efficiencies right across the supply chain.
Clover purchased the Fourth Shift system from MSP Ireland (MSP), SoftBrands' authorised sales and support partner for Fourth Shift in Ireland for over 10 years. The customer required a widely accepted solution, from an experienced systems provider, that could be implemented in months without disrupting their existing operations. Clover expects the Fourth Shift solution will allow them to continue to expand their operations throughout Europe and beyond.
Clover IT manager, Eduardo Moreira, said, "The industry standard components employed by Fourth Shift such as the Windows operating system, SQL database, terminal services and Internet Explorer, allows Clover to rapidly train staff, deploy the system, and integrate to third party products and external systems."
John McCann, managing director for MSP, added, "Clover Technologies represents another milestone implementation for Fourth Shift amongst international clients who have operations across diverse geographies and time spans."
Gareth Robinson, managing director of SoftBrands EMEA, said, "As Clover Technologies' business grows, Fourth Shift's robust scalability and wide choice of integrated application modules will ensure the system may be expanded without loss of performance. In addition, SoftBrands has the necessary global resources and commitment to make sure its new customer will have the best sales and technical support, wherever it chooses to operate and for the life of the system."
