It is no secret that digital transformation could help various businesses, specifically the small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), in many incredible ways. An improved customer database, sales, accounting and finance processes, warehouse management, and web shop certainly lead to a positive customer experience.
At some point, every business will need to implement a business software. Kalt AG, a company known for manufacturing solid wood as well as for cutting structural timber for timber system construction and conventional buildings, is one of the pioneers in using SAP Business One ERP business software. The company first used the system in 2005 and to this day, almost 100% of its operations and processes are managed digitally. From the production terminals, various robots and the end customers, all these are connected to the system and can independently generate information at any given time.
Kalt AG began as a simple sawmill in 1921. The company has reinvented itself several times since its foundation. At present, Kalt AG is considered as one of the most modern joinery plants in Switzerland. Further, it is regarded as an innovation driver within the industry and thus has been able to win the trust of new partners and customers.
True to form, there are different challenges associated with the growth of a business. Prior to implementing SAP Business One ERP Software, sustainability in business processes seemed unattainable and impossible for Kalt AG since it was then using several business systems – one for order processing and one for accounting. This created operational complexities and inefficiencies, thus became a turning point for Kalt AG to invest on the right business software and find the right partner for its implementation.
To grow its business sustainably, Kalt AG partnered with Itegrity AG with the goal to unify, integrate and optimize its business operations. Itegrity AG’s implementation of SAP Business One ERP Software enabled Kalt AG to reach its full potential, keep up with the growing market/consumer demand alongside maintaining its brand standards. Among its value-oriented results achieved through the implementation of SAP Business One ERP Software includes customers’ accessibility on the production status via an online live view, electronic importation of CAD production plans and packaging specifications, efficient time recording within the production process provides an overview.
Apart from these, SAP Business One ERP Software allowed Kalt AG to overcome paper battle in combination with cumbersome handling of Word and Excel, productivity-inhibiting media breaks between production, transport and administration staff and insufficient information transparency towards customers.
In Itegrity AG, KALT AG has found a reliable partner for versatile business solutions.
