The company Meffert ČR (Meffert Czech Republic) is a traditional provider of a comprehensive range of construction chemicals. It predominantly supplies paints, plasters, stains, industrial coatings and renovation materials by the German mother company Meffert AG. This range is extended by the production of other firms.
When carrying out its activities, the company naturally cannot do without being supported by a superior and comprehensive information system. As early as from 2002 it used a multinational (corporate) information system. However, because of its insufficient support it came to be obsolete and expensive to operate – and mainly it lagged behind the needs of a trading company. In view of these facts, the Meffert management decided to switch from this "old" system to another one, which would fully correspond to the requirements of a growing company. Therefore, since 1 January 2016 Meffert has been using the HELIOS Orange system by Asseco Solutions, which it chose the year before.
The implementation was started as early as in September 2015, thus well ahead of the launch date scheduled.
"Everything was planned very well," says Mr. Ondřej Svačina, Meffert Executive Director. "The launch on 1 January 2016 was secured by the presence of the consultants, with whom operational details were fine-tuned subsequently. Our goal consisted in preventing the change from having a negative impact on customer relations – which we achieved," he adds.
Although the full operation started on the very first day of this year, the implementation was fully accomplished on 30 April 2016. Nevertheless, the benefits of the new system are apparent already, i.e. within a relatively short period, as Mr. Svačina explains: "We mainly appreciate the possibility to communicate with MS Office, the acceleration of processes and the setting of individual displays according to the needs of individual users." As regards financial benefits, he states: "The aim was not to make the staff redundant and dismiss them, but to streamline the process so that we would not have to hire new employees when increasing turnovers. So far this has been met in accordance with the plan."
The following spheres of the HELIOS Orange system have been implemented at Meffert:
• Economy and Financial Management
• HELIOS Controlling
• Warehouse Management and Trade
• CRM and Services
• Wages and Human Resources
• Extension Functionalities (Plugins)
As regards the aspect of a comprehensive solution, the following modules and functionalities belong to the most interesting ones:
• Statements and Reports
• MS Excel Managerial Interface
• HELIOS Intelligence (Dataskop)
• General Imports
• Repayments and Leasing
• Additional Related Costs
• User Editors
It was especially Dataskop that grabbed the attention of the Meffert management, as the managers consider its option of customized setting for each user to be a great benefit when familiarizing themselves with the system and its use.
