1 System instead of Isolated Solutions

The Genossenschaft zur Förderung der Schweinehaltung e. G. now has an integrated system (including subsidiaries) and can access comprehensive information.
Overview:

Our Project with the Genossenschaft zur Förderung der Schweinehaltung e. G.

The conglomerate requires a customized solution to represent different departments and companies. The core business of the Genossenschaft zur Förderung der Schweinehaltung e. G. (GFS) is supplying customers engaged in agriculture with high-quality boar semen.

The introduction of an enterprise-wide solution that optimally combines inventory management and financial accounting became inevitable. Therefore, in collaboration with anaptis, GFS implemented the Dynamics NAV ERP solution back in 2009.

Initial Situation

“We faced several challenges. Not only were various isolated solutions in use that did not meet the technical requirements, but the separation of inventory management and accounting particularly resulted in – partly – inefficient processes.

Our customers order both boar semen from GFS and accessory products from our subsidiaries. So far, the subsidiary companies were not connected system-wise. This led to a significant amount of time being spent on providing business-relevant data, as data had to be captured and processed multiple times. This resulted in poor information availability, especially regarding the fulfillment status of customer requests.

Another issue was time-consuming inventories due to an immature system-based warehouse management. Additionally, logistics management was solely in the mind of the warehouse manager, creating unwanted dependencies. We considered several ERP systems, none of which ultimately met our needs. Ultimately, many individual adaptations were necessary for us, as our business cannot be compared to that of a conventional trading company.”

Challenges/Wishes at a Glance:

  1. Utilization of different isolated solutions (separate inventory management and accounting)
  2. Unconnected systems for each subsidiary
  3. Inventories require disproportionately much time due to immature system-based warehouse management
  4. Unwanted dependency in logistics management/tour planning on warehouse management (solely in the mind of the warehouse manager)
Set Focus:

The Goal

“We needed a system where our inventory management and accounting are connected. Additionally, our subsidiary companies had to be integrated. Special functions we required included simple warehouse management including inventory and route planning.”

Result

“Through the transition to anaptis, our departments are now interconnected in just one system, finally integrating inventory management with accounting. Our subsidiary companies are now connected system-wise, allowing us to map financial flows between our companies and have a common database. Cross-client financial accounting, along with a multitude of evaluation and analysis options, provides a quick overview of important operating figures and serves as the basis for our decisions and targets. Reordering is even handled automatically. Logistics processes are managed with system support.

With the entirety of improvements, we save time that we can invest in continuously improving customer relationship management – focusing on fulfilling as many customer requests as possible. Thus, we have paved the way to a combined solution on a common database, and our wishes have been fulfilled to a large extent.”

Improvements at a Glance:

  1. Replacement of isolated solutions with a combined solution
  2. Integration of subsidiary companies (domestic and international)
  3. Better decision-making basis through reports
  4. Comprehensive information through interfaces to other applications
  5. Easy compliance with documentation requirements of the register management (automatic maintenance of the inventory register according to traffic regulations (VVVO))
