The introduction of a new financial and manufacturing system gave the group opportunity to re-examine the best practices.Major Equipment

Flexible software to meet business needs.
MAJOR sells a wide range of tankers which are available with an extensive range of customisation options from wheels, pumps, PTO shafts, injector systems and other optional extras. Lecky says ProStrategy’s input was key to this, since its team was able to configure Dynamics NAV in a way that supports the ‘building’ of such a tanker at the sales order stage, rolling up all relevant costs and providing a detailed specification for production and subsequent shipping purposes.

The company now uses standard Microsoft Dynamics NAV, with some additional functionality that was developed to handle full financial processing and reporting, full supply chain management including job shop manufacturing, inventory control and unit serialisation leading to post sales service management tracking. The company has also extended the use of NAV into its UK operation, tracking full sales and spares distribution in the system.
Microsoft Dynamics NAV now drives bi-weekly management meetings where the agenda is based on up-to-date key business metrics. Performance has improved in key areas including a massive reduction in the number of debtor days, improved stock levels and increased accuracy of BOMs and costings. “Having a single instance of business data is hugely valuable – it drives much faster decisions based on accurate information”.
