Seifert mtm Systems Malta Ltd manufactures 35,000 industrial cooling and heating systems annually at its 11,500-square-meter production facility. The company supplies all major global markets through a worldwide sales and service network.
Seifert needed to build a real-time integrated business by automating its materials requirement planning, and it replaced its legacy Sage and Swan Software Solutions financial and manufacturing systems with Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12. The company met 80% of its complex-manufacturing requirements without customization, confirmed delivery dates and quotations faster, optimized production capacity, and gained the ability to scale processes to support its growing business.
Seifert rejected upgrading to newer versions of Swan Software and Sage in favor of the seamlessly integrated, real-time business applications offered by Oracle E-Business Suite that enable fully automated materials-requirement planning.
"Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 gives us world-class functionality, scales to our business, and will allow us to upgrade to innovative new technologies and leaner processes rapidly and inexpensively as soon as they come on stream," said Ruben Cuschieri, general manager, Seifert mtm Systems Malta Ltd.
Seifert used the preconfigured templates offered by partner Megabyte’s Oracle Accelerate solution for general business to complete the implementation in nine months and gain rapid user acceptance, which minimized disruption and mitigated risk of new technology adoption.
"Megabyte’s Oracle Accelerate ERP Solution jump-started the implementation and steered us towards implementing standardized processes. The solution’s preconfigured templates helped us build 80% of our requirements out-of-the-box. Oracle Accelerate solutions make implementing a tier-one solution affordable and risk-free for midsize companies," Cuschieri said.
Seifert chose Megabyte Limited, an Oracle Gold Partner for its Oracle expertise and reputation in successful Oracle E-Business Suite implementations in Malta. Megabyte configured the software to Seifert’s requirements, built the required customizations, and helped ensure an on-time implementation with rapid time to value. Megabyte’s consultants also transferred knowledge to Seifert’s two-member IT team to help them become self-sufficient in system support.
"Megabyte provided a one-stop shop for all our requirements. Their expertise was fundamental to our successful go-live, and their ongoing support ensures we maximize the benefit of our investment in Oracle technology," Cuschieri said.
