The Colussi Group's need to adopt a new ERP system was born from the analysis of the pre-existing infrastructure. The architecture of information systems in the company was very complex, with a lot of departmental systems and customized applications. The result was a constellation of systems, difficult to manage and maintain, as well as to adapt to the growing needs for flexibility of the company. The main objective was therefore identified in the simplification, where the ERP becomes the central core, the first pillar of this system evolution.
The best option has been identified in Microsoft Dynamics. This choice was based on the following factors: simplicity of the infrastructure as well as ease of use, of project implementation and system maintenance. Last but not least, the presence of the vertical FoodSuite, which covers specific processes and functions of Colussi's business.
We identified EOS as the ideal partner for support in all phases of the project, from analysis to follow-up. EOS pluses include the ability to team up with the customer, short response times and above all a strong expertise on the world of FOOD.
The flexibility of a tool like Microsoft Dynamics and the expertise of the EOS Solutions people were decisive factors for the success of the project.
