As a successful global leader in precision manufacturing, AH Industries (AHI) needed an ERP platform to integrate its complex multi-company, multi-language, and multi-currency support functions. They quickly settled on Odoo as the most suitable solution.
Their previous software solution included three different inefficient versions of MS Navision per company and location. Given the complexity of trying to manage their business with disparate systems, AH Industries was looking for one ERP-system for all sites, where they could easily access all data and transform their data into valuable information.
The IT manager conducted an extensive review of competing ERP systems and determined that Odoo offered the best value for money, due to its broad range of functionality and sensible license structure.
As a result of the excellent collaboration between OBS and AH Industries, cutover to the new Odoo system was done in only three months. This was due to superb internal project management by AHI, which made for smooth and efficient progress with issues addressed quickly.
For the duration of the project, AHI ran an internal project group with three people responsible for Supply Chain, Accounting, and information technology.
As AH Industries was using a highly customized business software prior to Odoo, they wanted to go as standard as they could with this implementation, avoiding excessive customization, allowing for easier upgrades down the road. For this reason, they decided to make only minor adjustments to Odoo's manufacturing order process, allowing them the flexibility that they required.
The attribute that AH Industries values most about Odoo is that it is a browser-based system that allows users to do their work on their preferred device: desktop, tablet, or mobile phone.
These "new ways of doing business" that Odoo makes possible, is in the eyes of AH Industries, the most significant benefit from changing their business software.
"Even our complex requirements could be mainly managed within Odoo standard, because of the focus, the Odoo competence and the quick feedback from OBS."
“We were only able to go live within 3 months thanks to the quick and convincing solutions from OBS. The operational cooperation was exceptionally good."
