Al Sharafi Babich Steel previously operated by simple accounting system to manage accounts and other excel sheets to manage delivery and sales, and in both cases we had to have numerous additional systems to run the business. They had multiple databases for contacts, maintenance contracts, servicing and several more besides, separate systems for petty cash. Data varied between the systems, and no one had the complete picture.
As the business grew, it became increasingly important to implement a system that would improve visibility and co-ordination across the organization, especially to manage steel purchasing, inventory, steel production, sales delivery, scrap, fixed assets, expenses for multiple cost centers.
The company decided to implement Enterprise by MIKRO ERP, initially just for their administration but also in their stores. MIKRO now has 10 users across multiple sites, using functionality including accounts, order processing and stock, purchase orders, quotations, sales, repetitive invoicing, steel production, scrap management, fixed assets record with monthly depreciation and expenses distribution among multiple cost center.
