The Hunt for Automation & Integration
Quality design and manufacturing are fundamental to Instant UpRight’s success. While the company’s products are of the highest quality, and designed to meet any safety standards, their business model faced many challenges.
The manufacturer previously used a 20-year-old ERP system that was struggling to keep up with their scale of operations. This Legacy system had a poor planning structure and sales process, with absolutely no real-time or dynamic reporting available. This meant the company was unable to facilitate a platform for internal communication, which often led to confusion amongst colleagues.
There was also no sales automation (or integration) with inventory management. Instant UpRight was in desperate need of a system that could put checks between their purchasing and selling processes, in addition to including approval mechanisms at various levels.
