SAP Business All-in-One
Edmund Optics needed a solution to help coordinate all the steps necessary to manufacture and deliver products quickly. As the company’s global presence increased, there was little visibility into the company and their processes, and their existing solution couldn’t keep up. Edmund Optics needed a solution to meet both current and future needs.
Delivering as quickly as possible
Edmund Optics was looking for a solution with many features: it had to be intuitive and easy to use, it would need to grow with the company, and it would have to support multiple languages. As a smaller company, Edmund also needed a solution that would fit their budget requirements.
The Business All-in-One solution met every requirement Edmund set, and it has transformed the way Edmund Optics is able to run their business. The system is intuitive and easy to use, data can be quickly accessed and reported, and visibility into the manufacturing workflow has been greatly increased.
As the company rallied around this implementation, it fostered a sense of teamwork, and created champions for each department, ensuring that employees would make full use of the solution’s potential. With SAP, Edmund Optics has found a long-term solution that will help them to continue to grow.
A company-wide milestone
Edmund Optics plans to expand global functionality and visibility, using the software to understand cultural differences and meet different needs in worldwide locations – all while keeping a family-oriented structure. They also plan to add mobility, HR, and marketing functionalities.
