PN Beslag invests in consultancy before selecting an ERP system
PN Beslag previously used a DAC financial system and a MAPICS production and logistics solution for which it had become difficult to find consultants for maintenance tasks. Consequently, the company wanted to invest in a new ERP system.
The need for a requirements specification
"We had tried to find contacts ourselves, but then we came into contact with EG Management Consulting (EG MC). We hosted a manager seminar where EG MC participated and put focus on the need for uncovering the value chain and targets as well as focus points for a project – including time schedule, project organisation, etc. We discussed the tender flow and the creation of a requirements specification for the upcoming tender. EG MC presented us with a report that clarified the value of creating a business-oriented requirements specification – and subsequently prepared a quotation for the project," says managing director Erik A. Skov.
I am glad that the other offers were not cheaper, because there was good chemistry between us and EG MC, and they were very professional.Erik A. Skov, managing director, PN Beslag
With the requirements specification, everything is included, and I can sleep calmly at night. This has taken away the risk, considering our ambitious time schedule.Erik A. Skov, managing director, PN Beslag
PN Beslag needed to replace its existing ERP solution, but wanted maximum security that the new solution selected would support the company's needs.
EG Management Consulting guided PN Beslag through a clarification process during which all the company's wishes and needs were uncovered and categorised. Based on the analysis work, PN Beslag received a business-oriented requirements specification that ensured quality in the continued process of finding the right solution.
A solid foundation and peace of mind in the continued work of selecting an ERP system and security that the company selects a solution that meets its needs and ensures success in the future.
PN Beslag is a 133-year-old company that develops, produces and sells fasteners to both DIY people and industrial customers – typically factories producing doors and windows. The company has sales offices in Denmark, Norway and the United Kingdom and has around 200 employees.
