'Partnering with TSG allowed us to get the best out of NAV driving efficiencies and maximising our ROI in the shortest time. A real partnership developed from pre sales to post go live support’
The customer objectives
CJR realised that in order to keep up with their propeller manufacturing demands, they would need to invest in a powerful IT platform to drive operational efficiencies. The solution needed to be flexible to adapt and grow according to business objectives, and provide a basis for maintaining processes which up until now were all stored on spread sheets. As well as investing in a software solution, CJR also wanted to be sure that the IT partner they selected provided a full service, from a smooth implementation period through to guidance and support of the software moving forward. With background knowledge in the manufacturing industry and a service centre in close proximity to the CJR site, TSG was selected as the ideal IT provider to the business.
The TSG Solution
After getting a full breakdown of what the business currently used and an understanding of their requirements and expectations for new software, TSG recommended Microsoft Dynamics NAV. CJR managed the majority of their business on spread sheets, so the Dynamics NAV solution would provide a structure to enforce and manage the company’s manufacturing processes. Microsoft Dynamics NAV has fully integrated manufacturing and finance modules which suited CJR’s routines and promoted open and seamless integration to SharePoint. Microsoft Dynamics NAV also links with Spindle – a cost effective document management solution to assist CJR with outbound documentation.
The benefits of Microsoft Dynamics NAV to the propeller supplier industry
Since the implementation of Microsoft Dynamics NAV CJR has benefitted from its versatility greatly. Nick Groom, IT Manager at CJR Propulsion said, ‘Partnering with TSG allowed us to get the best out of NAV driving efficiencies and maximising our ROI in the shortest time. A real partnership developed from pre-sales to post go live support. Staff are working more efficiently using the software to streamline processes which has saved time across all departments.' The Microsoft Dynamics NAV system also offers the company an open platform for future integration should the need arise for further add-on software products to help drive the business forward.
The future for TSG and CJR Propulsion
CJR continues to see the benefits of the Microsoft Dynamics NAV installation, and remains happy with the support and advice that TSG provides as an IT partner. With regards to future projects, reporting and data transparency is a key element for CJR moving forward. It will allow the business to make more timely decisions based on visible data and stay ahead of the competition. TSG has already recommended QlikView to meet all of the analytical needs.
