Sumitomo Electric Lightwave Plant - Research Triangle Park, US
The implementation project covered all business domains, including Sales, Logistics, Production and Planning. InnoVites successfully worked with Sumitomo and with our local partner mcaConnect to complete the full project in just one year! The comprehensive industry-specific functionality in CableERP results in a great fit and allows a short implementation time. Sumitomo is using the rich functionality of CableERP for the wire&cable industry, including specialized modules for the Optical Fiber Cable manufacturing.
InnoVites announces today the successful completion of the implementation project at Sumitomo. In one year both CableERP and CableBuilder have been successfully implemented, and Sumitomo is utilizing the integrated solutions today in all their business domains. CableBuilder and CableERP on Microsoft Dynamics provide a solution that integrates all processes in the company. It supports and enhances the business processes in Sales, Logistics, Production and Planning.
The benefits of the solutions include:
- Improved customer satisfaction by capturing full customer requirements like length break-down and tolerances, drum type preferences. The integration with CableBuilder comes with a powerful search facility to find the design that meets customer requirements.
- Reduced working capital and material losses. With the InnoVites length-based supply chain planning, materials are converted into finished cables in the shortest possible time and with the least possible material losses.
- More effective and cost efficient product data management with CableBuilder and CableERP. This integrated solution provides the latest product information across the company.
- Streamlined and integrated processes across the company, including specific areas such as Fiber import and Fiber grading.
