Analysis

Growth seldom comes without challenges. The company had been growing so fast that it was almost outrunning itself! However, rapid growth presented a multitude of challenges. The company’s exponential growth culminated in the opening its 6th branch at Kamptee Road, Nagpur. The existing legacy system was far from sufficient to handle the increase in transaction volumes and operational expenses. Managing more than 1 branch offices spread across various geographical locations soon proved to be a phenomenal challenge.

As the company expanded its presence to over 7 branches, inventory management proved to be the biggest challenge. They soon realized that real-time data was critical to having a streamlined supply chain. Without an integrated ERP system it was difficult to plan inter branch stock-transfers from their Central Distribution Center at Jaripatka. It became near to impossible to monitor 5+ branches from the head office at Jaripatka.

The company also faced mounting challenges from its competitors. It had to reduce the lead time in order to stay ahead of increasing competition. Losing orders due to insufficient stock was out of question in such a competitive market. Also, branch-wise cost/profitability management was the need of the hour.

What the company wanted was an ERP solution which could address the burgeoning difficulties in inventory management, seamlessly integrate 5+ branches, and provide an effective decision making system for the top management.
