Bravilor increase sales and profits following their JD Edwards Implementation.

Bravilor Bonamat needed to improve their stock management and supply chain to cope with rapid growth and an increase in new product lines.

Existing manual stock management processes were not effective, resulting in stock deviations, inaccurate stock information and a significant administrative burden.

The company required a user-friendly, flexible, integrated Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system, and a way to encourage existing employees to adapt to the new way of working.

Customer Challenge

Bravilor Bonamat needed to improve their stock management and supply chain to cope with rapid growth and an increase in new product lines.

Existing manual stock management processes were not effective, resulting in stock deviations, inaccurate stock information and a significant administrative burden.

The company required a user-friendly, flexible and integrated ERP system, and a way to encourage existing employees to adapt to the new way of working.

WHY BRAVILOR BONAMAT CHOSE REDFAIRE INTERNATIONAL

Bravilor Bonamat chose Oracle’s JD Edwards EnterpriseOne following a year long selection process. The Redfaire International team was chosen for its deep JD Edwards technical expertise and familiarity with the manufacturing industry.

Their current system could not scale to meet demand for new product lines and stricter product quality requirements.

Bravilor Bonamat also needed a partner that could reduce the costs and improve the efficiency of their manual stock management.

They also had a lack of robust, user-friendly reporting systems. These systems did not allow for actionable data insights.

Partner requirements.

  • Deep JD Edwards ERP technical skills.
  • Required a partner who could improve flexibility & efficiency in production & stock management.
  • And who could improve customer experience and help them make more informed business decisions.

A ‘big bang’ implementation approach in the Heerhugowaard site was successful, with employees able to learn the system quickly. Bravilor Bonamat has rolled out the system to its branch offices across Europe.

Outcomes

Redfaire International worked closely with Bravilor Bonamat to prepare employees for the change in their roles. Key employees were included in analysis, configuration and testing of the system.

Automated stock management processes have replaced manual tracking.

The integrated barcode scanning system supports the reception of goods, the quality registration of goods and provides a seamless connection to the work floor. Full serial number tracing is also possible.

Completion reports are transmitted from production lines to workstations, informing customers of exact delivery dates, and helping the shipping company with effective scheduling.

This complex implementation project led to an increase in worldwide sales and profits.

Capi Europe

Capi Europe operates in a market known for rapidly changing trends. Existing IT systems were not able to keep up with the data demands necessary to support efficient production and stock management operations.

Jumbo Group

The original schedule for this major project was calculated at six months. Redfaire International worked with Jumbo Group to create a project schedule with a two stage implementation, and dedicated teams for Finance, Purchasing and Sales modules.

How User Experience Design has become key in your IT strategy

When talking to colleagues and customers below the age of 35, I hear most of them talk about their user experience with IT in terms of how intuitive an app is. It should be simple, should show you only what you need. Simply put, it should be user designed.
