Challenges faced by the customer-
Manufacturing is a highly competitive industry where efficiency and performance are critical success metrics. Customers expect quick turnaround times, minimal defect rates and competitive prices. Our customer’s custom-built switchboard manufacturing was being restricted by its manual processes which were being executed in silos without any visibility into performance. Some of the key challenges that were being faced by our customer are:
- A decentralized platform led to a lack of visibility across the organization, inconsistent communication channels and high volumes of manual data entry, which was slow, costly, and prone to errors
- Impossible to get an accurate and up-to-date snapshot of sales, pipeline, invoicing, stock levels and product orders in their system
SAP Business One Implementation by Embee
The customer was using an on-premises application which was not able to cope up with their growing needs. Embee conducted a comprehensive study into the customer’s existing processes and found that the current setup made it difficult to scale.
We suggested implementation of customized SAP Business One solution for centralized data capturing real time report visibility, report Generation with customized dashboard, order management control, inventory control & management, API integration with other web applications (customer care), purchase process with complete monitoring, e-invoicing, WayBill and statutory solutions/item cloning.
SAP Business One offered full financials as well as end-to-end sales and inventory management in a system that was easy to implement, simple to use and affordable for a small business budget. It delivered one platform to run end-to-end business operations including finance, contracts, and asset management – it is a scalable solution that can be customised by location.
Impact of the solution

Reduced inventory costs
Embee’s automated inventory management solution eliminated inventory ordering mistakes by providing all stakeholders an up-to-date inventory level detail. This helped customer save up to Rs. 5 lakhs per quarter which was previously getting spent on inventory that was ordered but never used. Better management of inventory also helped enhance production times and efficiency.
Improved production efficiency and accountability
Embee’s customized production management system always enabled the customer to track the status of production. This allowed them to make more informed decisions regarding production commitments to customers.

The production, sales, and purchase managers, equipped with data were also able to better manage their respective departments, driving up overall profitability.
