MODERNIZATION & DIGITIZATION
To improve business results and for digitization purposes on the production floor, Stertil needed to evolve and modernize their facility processes. They needed a tool to bring their ERP on the production floor, in such a way that it is user-friendly and effective for their production workers who needed to register their hours correctly.
“Our ERP system is not very user-friendly, for all our workers, so we needed something that would make it easier for them to do things directly in the ERP system, leaving behind all the paperwork.” – said Herrien Bisschop, Head of Information Technology & DPO @ Stertil.
In a few words, the digitization of their ERP system, combining all functions to have all they needed in one place and with easy access.
Before resorting to outsourcing, Stertil took their own ERP system into consideration, but that idea was quickly dismissed since it was far too complex.
Another solution was low code – building a low code environment that fits the company’s needs. This idea was also dismissed because it would bring a big mess on the backend side.
From an IT perspective, the best way to do it correctly and professionally was by creating a mock-up for a web interface. They needed a reliable and experienced partner that could work together with the ERP supplier to build a frontend that could be easily used by their workers and quick to learn.
