SYSPRO, a leading, worldwide provider of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software, has today revealed that Tri-M Technologies, a Port Coquitlam, British Columbia-based manufacturer of embedded power and computer solutions, has re-conceptualized its business processes, disconnected from its old, inadequate business software, and implemented, on an accelerated timeline, SYSPRO ERP.
"Prior to SYSPRO," says Tri-M's John Diack, who assumed the role of President & CEO in June, 2010,"the company was basically flying blind. We were using a web-based ERP that was, quite frankly, a joke. There was no integration across departments, and no ability to accurately control or report on our inventory and supply. The company needed to change – quickly. Coincidentally, during the late summer of 2010 we were scheduled to merge two companies together, which presented itself as a natural opportunity to drive the ERP implementation timeline. We knew that the opportunity for change was rich, and we didn't want to wait."
To help ensure that the implementation went according to schedule, Tri-M hired an outside ERP consultant – Mary-Jane Tessarolo, CGA, MBA. Tessarolo, with many ERP implementations to her credit, knows that part of driving an ERP project is setting attainable expectations. "Over the years I've learned the pitfalls, risks, criticals, and – very importantly – what isn't critical. Understanding a business's key needs, assessing uncertainty, and ensuring early visible results and improvements are all important steps for the success of an ERP implementation. While working within Tri-M's six-week time frame, knowing what could be put off till later was absolutely crucial."
Knowing that service would be key to the success of the implementation, Diack carefully considered the various ERP offerings. "The product we ultimately chose," says Diack,"was competitively priced, but just as important was their regional location, and their reputation for service. Our reference checks proved it out, and the decision was made to go with SYSPRO."
