WPS Implements SAP® Software to Deliver Even Greater Value for Clients
Electronics assembly specialist Wilson Process Systems (WPS) is to integrate its core activities using SAP® Business One, in a move that will enhance efficiency as well as turnaround time for clients as the company continues to grow past the £10 million milestone it surpassed early in 2012.
SAP Business One is an integrated management application combining powerful automated features with the ease of use needed by today’s small and mid-size enterprises (SMEs). As a unified platform for management of financial, purchasing, inventory and customer relationship activities, offering responsive reporting capabilities, SAP Business One equips WPS to handle higher volumes of transactions while maintaining accuracy, reducing response times, and ensuring competitive prices for their clients.
Nigel Starkey, Materials Manager at WPS in charge of the project to implement SAP, said, “This is the right system for WPS at the right time, enabling us to continue improving services and growing our business. In particular, it will help us to capture customers’ requirements more quickly and to a high level of accuracy, and automate procurement processes to achieve the best possible prices and delivery times.”
Complete Business Systems Ltd, the accredited provider of SAP Business One for accounting, distribution and manufacturing applications, is WPS’ chosen partner to supply and integrate the software. “SAP Business One has many strengths including its ability to interact with external systems such as A-Track, which automates the despatch of goods using handheld terminals and provide full component traceability,” commented Keith Gale of CBS. “We developed A-Track independently to help clients in manufacturing and distribution sectors satisfy key customer requirements, and we are implementing the system with SAP Business One at WPS.”
Tim Wilson, WPS director and SAP project champion, added, “WPS continues to win business and maintain solid growth, even in the current difficult economic phase. Adopting SAP Business One and CBS A-Track is a logical and exciting move forward, providing the tools we need to build on our solid foundations. I have every confidence in Nigel, who has extensive experience of implementing and using SAP applications, to guide the project towards a successful conclusion.”
