Eco Log chooses MONITOR G5! The powerful product configurator – a convincing reason

Eco Log Sweden AB, the manufacturer of forestry machines, now changes ERP system to MONITOR G5. Business developer Olof Ohlsson is clear about what decided the matter: "One of the major reasons for us choosing MONITOR is the powerful product configurator," he says.

Eco Log had not updated their ERP system in quite some time, that's why the company was facing the choice either to perform a major update or change to a new system altogether.

"We analyzed what was best and found that a change was needed to get control over our business data. A fresh start was needed. We specified our demands and had a dialog with different suppliers of ERP systems, one of these suppliers was Monitor. After an internal evaluation process, we went ahead with a preliminary study of MONITOR which had very good results," says Olof Ohlsson.

According to Olof Ohlsson, there were several factors which led up to the final decision to choose MONITOR G5.

"We chose MONITOR because the size of the system suits us very well. We don't need a lot of adaptations and help in the system, and when we do need something – Monitor supplies it. Also, several of our separate systems are no longer needed since that functionality is included in MONITOR. There are also lots of follow-up features we can use. The easy access to the support center and consultants for training was also very important to us – this makes it possible for us to stay updated and to optimize our use of the system”.

 

However, the crucial factor was MONITOR's product configurator which really corresponded well to the needs of Eco Log. “It is powerful enough to provide us with control of how the machine is constructed, and for us to get rid of several of our other systems!," says Olof Ohlsson.

Eco Log plan to go live with MONITOR G5 in the fall of 2019.
