Are there any particular functions of MONITOR that stand out?
"The Recording terminal. It’s really clear, and there’s a lot of information to be found there. For example, you can add messages for the operator or view the priority plan. Recording is definitely the most important thing. If we don’t keep production in check, we don't have control of the business. Our workforce continues to grow fast, since our goal is to enhance production," he adds.
Is MONITOR a key factor in the continued development of business at Koenigsegg?
"Absolutely. The ERP system is the hub of our business. If our business changes, MONITOR has to follow. If there are new functions or processes in MONITOR we always aim to use the new functionality in our current workflow. That’s how MONITOR helps us to constantly evolve. For us to continually strive to be more effective, the ERP system is an extremely important tool, and it’s essential that the software is on the cutting edge."
