Recommends TRIMIT Configuration
With TRIMIT Configuration, Heco International now has a solution they can highly recommend to others.
“After the introduction of TRIMIT, which was fast and has already proven amazingly efficient compared to our old system, I highly recommend this solution.”
HECO International A/S is a traditional manufacturer of machine parts, but they’ve specialised in producing piston rod stuffing boxes, a spare part used in ships’ engines.
Production takes place in Denmark and China, and HECO International has customers all over the world. The global market and fluctuating prices of raw materials call for strategic overview, and HECO’s old ERP-system did not provide this, which is why HECO International switched to TRIMIT Production.
“Before we began using TRIMIT, we were running on a very old system,” explains Carsten Steffensen, CEO of Heco International. “That meant our data wasn’t very accessible, and that it was a slow system to work with. We didn’t have any tools for creating reports, so it was hard for management to get the information we needed.”
TRIMIT Configuration Became the Solution
Heco International chose TRIMIT Configuration as their new ERP system.
It’s an integrated solution that covers the whole value chain from bids and contracts to production and customer services. TRIMIT Configuration provides a uniform platform that uses the same terminology everywhere, and the solution has given the management of Heco International a much better overview of the company.
“Now that we’re running on TRIMIT, we have much more real time data, because entering and handling data is significantly easier with the new solution,” says Carsten Steffensen. “That makes it easier to assess our inventory, because we know exactly what’s in stock. We can quickly give our customers a precise estimate of delivery times, and we’re set to react if there’s a change in our stock of raw materials. In the end, that means we have fewer materials tied up in storage and less working capital.”
Carsten Steffensen doesn’t hesitate to recommend TRIMIT Configuration: “After the introduction of TRIMIT, which was fast and has already proven amazingly efficient compared to our old system, I highly recommend this solution.”
