Bergsala, Nintendo's representative in the Nordic region, has opted to expand its collaboration with IBS by upgrading its existing ERP system to IBS Enterprise 6.0.
Bergsala evaluated several other competing systems in its purchase process but the choice fell to IBS. For Bergsala, an upgrade to IBS Enterprise 6.0 means primarily more efficient day-to-day work with order processes, customer accounts and warehouse management.
"The reason we chose to continue our collaboration with IBS is partly because we have a more than ten-year-long business relationship, and partly because it's simpler and less expensive to update an existing solution," says Allan Ronnebro, joint owner of Bergsala. "Continued cooperation also saves us from training issues and technical processes - time that we can use more cost-effectively."
"Functionality that is decisive for us has become sharper in the new version. For example, order processes, customer accounts and above all, the reporting system, which is significantly faster, plus it provides improved decision-making support," says Ronnebro.
Work on the upgrade to IBS Enterprise 6.0 is estimated to be ready in October 2007, before the incoming orders for the Christmas season begin to roll in. Along with the upgrade, IBS is also implementing a server update for Bergsala.
Bergsala, located in Kungsbacka, Sweden, has been the Nordic and Baltic states representative for Nintendo since 1981. Bergsala also markets and distributes Pokmon games; Cobra from the U.S., which produces innovative products for free mobile communications; and Japan's Orion, which produces DVD players and TV-video combinations. Bergsala has locations in Sweden, Norway and Denmark.
