"With Dynamics NAV, we were able to see a significant increase in productivity right after we started using it. Especially in procurement and order processing. The time savings and the quicker searches for information mean less stress for our employees and a lighter workload."
Ing. Hermann Peitler, Project Manager at Intellic
The Intellic Group was formed in 2007 as a management buyout from Efkon AG, which specializes in toll and intelligent transport systems. Today, the high-tech company is one of the leading manufacturers of digital tachographs. Its modern devices are not only safe and easy to use, they also meet the different standards in countries such as Russia and Turkey and in the European Union. Theain target group is local and international transport companies. In addition to the offices in Hausmannsstätten near Graz/Austria and Berlin, the company is represented by a dense distribution network in all major European metropolitan areas.
For a long time, Intellic had a central server, but it used a variety of different applications, such as Microsoft Office. Because it lacked a company-wide unified ERP system, data and documents often had to be entered twice or manually transferred between programs. This was a time-consuming and non-transparent process with a high error rate. "When information was needed, we often had to search for it in multiple systems. The response times were correspondingly long," recalls Ing. Hermann Peitler, Project Manager at Intellic. The company decided to replace the hodgepodge of individual solutions with an integrated ERP system. Above all, the company was interested in transparent product life cycles. "Importing serial numbers and end-to-end tracking was one of our most important core requirements," adds Peitler. In addition, system consolidation, additional evaluations and cash flow analyses were at the top of the wish list. The contract to design and implement the new business software went to the COSMO CONSULT Group, Europe's leading Microsoft Dynamics partner.
COSMO CONSULT combined modules such as goods management, financial accounting, production and assembly into a holistic ERP system that monitors Intellic's processes and optimizes them in the right places. Special functions for the data import of serial numbers, cash flow analysis and customer service were extensions of the standard scope. The work of the headquarters in Hausmannsstätten near Graz/Austria and of the Competence Center in Berlin is brought together behind the scenes in a consolidation client. Web clients are available for mobile access to the data.
With Dynamics NAV, Intellic Group employees can access relevant data and up-to-the-minute financial reports in real time - and across national borders. The project team succeeded in sustainably optimizing and accelerating key processes. "With Dynamics NAV, we were able to see a significant increase in productivity right after we started using it. Especially in procurement and order processing. The time savings and the quicker searches for information mean less stress for our employees and a lighter workload," emphasized Peitler. In addition, it is also possible to access all relevant company data on a mobile basis with the highest level of security.
