“Our operational efficiencies have definitely improved. We are using SYSPRO to enhance business performance and drive business behavior through real-time, business-critical insights for quicker analysis, decision making and execution.”
– Eliah Mutaviri, Portfolio Financial Director, Battery Business.
The battery cluster of South African group Hudaco Industries consists of three businesses: Eternity Technologies, Specialised Battery Systems and Deltec Energy Solutions, each of which focuses on a specialized area of the battery market.
The Business Challenge
All three businesses in the battery cluster of Hudaco were operating on different business systems. The group needed to migrate them all onto a single fully-integrated ERP solution to increase controls and enhance efficiencies.
Hudaco selected SYSPRO 8 as its standardized solution across the battery cluster based on several factors including the system’s superior reporting, internal controls, work in progress and inventory management capabilities.
The Portfolio Financial Director, Eliah Mutaviri, championed and headed up the selection and implementation of SYSPRO 8 across all three battery businesses. The solution was a new implementation for Eternity Technologies and Deltec Energy Solutions, while Specialised Battery Systems upgraded from SYSPRO 6 to SYSPRO 8.
“It makes life so much easier having one solution for all the battery businesses,” he says.
“Although I have experience with other ERP systems, I have worked with SYSPRO since 2014 and know the system very well. In my opinion, it is simply the best ERP solution available.”
