In this research based award, Deacom has been recognized by Frost & Sullivan for its capabilities to render unmatched customer value and consolidate its position in the North American ERP market for chemicals. Leveraging its expertise and sound technical knowledge in ERP, Deacom has secured an edge over its competitors in the chemicals industry by providing a single-system approach to ERP that increases productivity, reduces upgrade costs, and eliminates complexities related to customization.
In the spring of 2017, Deacom began implementation if its ERP system for Teasdale Foods, a leading manufacturer and provider of Hispanic food products, headquartered Atwater, California. The company has seen tremendous growth over the past few years both organically and through acquisitions, and is currently operating with six different facilities. Just as the teams were wrapping up the last of the facility implementations, we sat down with CEO, Chris Kiser, to talk about their business, the process leading up to choosing Deacom, and his take on the overall implementation process.
AMCO Proteins, a specialty proteins manufacturer, was using technology to run their business much like other manufacturing companies in the United States: by customizing various types of software to deliver specific capabilities. While the company was able to ‘get by’ for a few years, gaps in their process were becoming more prominent as the complexity of the business developed.
California Custom Fruits & Flavors evaluated four different software systems that met the basic functional needs of their business. They chose DEACOM, largely because of the platform’s intuitiveness and development philosophy, which is rooted in simplicity and evolution.
Silver Spring Foods evaluated their needs and requirements in an ERP system in order to scale the business. The company determined that they were looking for a system that: tied together customer service, accounting, manufacturing, purchasing, and shipping within a single tool; had strong data mining and reporting functionality; provided strong sales reporting; was configurable without customization; had strong sustainable technical support capabilities; and would not exceed ERP budget allocations.
Over the past ten years, D.G. Yuengling & Son has experienced incredible growth as the brand continues to expand to the West Coast. In 2010, the brewing empire realized they were just “getting by” with two disparate, outdated ERP systems to manage operations in their Pennsylvania and Florida locations. It became clear that it would not be possible to successfully expand their distribution without uprooting that foundation.
American Inks and Coatings was started and designed to be the low cost producer of the highest quality, most consistent ink and coatings product available for the packaging industry throughout the United States. But when an outdated system of customized software was getting in the way of conducting their business, the company decided it was time to implement an ERP solution that could meet all of their needs.
International businesses are faced with a wide range of challenges in order to operate effectively in multiple countries. Deacom’s ERP software ensures that customers are able to operate in multiple countries and meet the different requirements surrounding regulatory documents, language, shipping restrictions, currency, tax, and reporting.
When ERP software was first developed the dream was to create an application where information was shared freely between all departments of an organization. The purpose of ERP was simple; facilitate the flow of information and by doing so simplify the complexity of the organization. Integrated software systems were developed and implemented. Sounds like a dream come true. Unfortunately, the reality is often closer to a nightmare. While the idea to create one central location for all information was good, multiple systems bolted together create multiple silos of information and, much like links in a chain, the connections between them are the weakest points in every ERP system.
Have you invested so much money, time, and energy into your ERP system that you feel trapped? Do unexpected invoices for customizations and upgrades appear more than you ever thought it would? Are you finding yourself sinking deeper and deeper from reinvesting in your ERP solution?
Learn why many ERP software installations have become so bloated that the software that was originally purchased to make the organization more efficient is now hindering these same organizations’ ability to become or remain nimble, to be responsive, and ultimately increase the ability to compete effectively.
