When Clarion sought an ERP partner, its needs were clear: it wanted advanced planning and scheduling capability, mobile apps to drive innovation, real-time visibility into its production data, bar coding, and EDI integration. After conducting its due diligence, Clarion chose abas ERP to deliver on those needs.
Clarion’s Operations Controller, Tim Derengowski, saw a big difference after the abas ERP implementation. Whereas before the ERP implementation, Clarion couldn’t really get fast and precise information about its production, things changed after abas: “Now with abas, all of the different facets of our production -- the parts, the resin, the machines -- are all interlinked and the relevant data is visible to all of us.” What improvements has this enabled? Many, according to Derengowski: “If someone sees an error now in the production, or wants to change the schedule, it can happen live and everybody can see it as it’s happening.”
Gaining that sort of visibility and agility into production and production-related data enhances quality and precision. It also drives better, more data-driven decision-making throughout Clarion. Working with abas USA to meet all its ERP requirements, Clarion Technologies is building a strong future for itself and its customers.
