Productivity benefits to drive improved levels of customer service through an integrated ERP system
Leading teaching, presentation and educational support equipment provider, TeacherBoards, has chosen a SYSPRO 6.0 system from McGuffie Brunton to meet their needs for a fully integrated ERP system.
Yorkshire based TeacherBoards provides a wide range of whiteboards, notice boards, interactive whiteboards, showcases and ancillary equipment for schools, hospitals and universities worldwide. The company is anticipating immediate and significant business benefits when the system goes live in January 2007.
As soon as the business has access to the fully integrated SYSPRO CRM, manufacturing, distribution and financial system they expect to operate with dramatically reduced lead-times, providing additional revenue and improved levels of customer service.
Scott Grant, Managing Director of TeacherBoards, commented: "Aside from administration time-savings we expect to generate, the key driver for us is the ability to operate in a leaner, more efficient environment where every department in the business can understand and manage the impact of their actions upon others. This will improve both our sales and profitability and allow TeacherBoards to offer a level of service way beyond our current capability."
TeacherBoards will also use SYSPRO to provide further business benefits in the form of improved production planning and improved management of its supply base which extends into several overseas locations.
