A Time for Change
In the early days of operation, processes and data were managed with several Excel-sheets and a homemade access application. As the company grew, SCL Rotterdam looked for a system that would best fit their processes at that point in time. In 2009, SCL Rotterdam decided to go for a purely logistics software system. In the years following the implementation of this logistics software system, the company heavily diversified. More and more services were added, in addition to departments and completely new business processes.
The company concluded the simple logistics system was not enough to cover the company’s entire workflow. To cover the new requirements a few new tools were programmed inhouse and departments increasingly used Google Sheets to maintain their data and monitor processes. Seven years later they reviewed their internal architecture and concluded there were many opportunities to increase efficiency. They needed a proper software solution for their company. Major pain points were the inefficiency of working in many different systems across departments. This caused double data entries as all the data wasn’t centrally available. It was time for a change.
