CAPI EUROPE

Capi Europe is a brand leader in plant pots and garden items. They design and produce around 2,500 products for customers in over 60 different countries.

Founded in 1997 in the Netherlands, Capi Europe is environmentally conscious, using recycled materials and a unique method of rotation molding which saves 80% of energy use during production.

Customer Challenge

Capi Europe needed a JD Edwards partner to help them deal with stock management challenges.

These challenges were created by a trend-driven market and a large catalogue of over 2500 products.

They also needed to improve the efficiency of existing warehouse management processes throughout their global operation and required a fast project delivery - the project needed to be 100% completed within 3 months.

WHY CAPI EUROPE CHOSE REDFAIRE INTERNATIONAL

Capi Europe needed a strategic partner who was willing to immerse themselves in the business, understand their processes and work with them to deliver a robust system.

The first step was a selection process, where they asked potential suppliers to propose methods and solutions that could be implemented quickly.

Partner requirements

  • Fast Delivery and clearly defined methodology.
  • Deep JDE ERP technical skills.
  • Specialists in the industrial manufacturing sector.
  • ISO 27001 Accredited.

To facilitate end-user adoption, Redfaire International organized and supported software demonstrations for all users including warehouse managers and warehouse employees.

Outcomes

Complete ERP Implementation within 3 months - delivery was accelerated by a combination of a virtual implementation environment, and a methodology to preconfigure the system and minimize the number of parameters that required definition.

The main benefit for Capi Europe is cost saving due to increased efficiency, and a reduction in the number of employees required. The company has full oversight of stock levels, with improved accuracy for warehouse numbers, and better tracking of item locations.

The system calculates the optimum storage location for order picking and bulk storage, for over 2500 items. As a result, Capi Europe can sell items while they are still in transit from Asia.

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.
