SwePart Verktyg AB is one of the leading tool manufacturers in Scandinavia. SwePart’s primary customers are the leading vehicle industries in Europe. The company has been using the ERP system MONITOR since June, 2012.
“We had a choice; either to upgrade Jeeves or to get a new ERP system. We decided to go for a new system and that meant MONITOR. MONITOR is competent, cost effective and user-friendly,” says Per Josefsson, Business Controller at VerktygsAllians i Hässleholm AB (SwePart’s parent company).
“It took two months from project start to actual start-up,” Per says. “Two very competent consultants from Monitor performed the implementation and I also spent much of my working hours on the project. We were 5-6 persons in the project group and now there are 14 employees that are using MONITOR every day and we have another 14 terminals in the workshop. MONITOR is used for our entire business; sales, production, purchase, stock, and finance. We actually didn’t use all of the budgeted consulting hours,” Per continues.
“The main difference from before is that MONITOR is very visual for the users. The information is right there and our users don’t have to create Excel sheets with the information that they want. Furthermore, there is a great planning tool in MONITOR and really good support for project follow-ups.
Now we just have to learn more about MONITOR, tune the settings and learn how to use the planning tools even better,” Per concludes.
