The system was selected to provide an integrated just-in-time (JIT) supply chain execution solution throughout all Saint-Gobain Sekurit European sites.
"We have implemented Apriso's FlexNet system to provide a completely unified solution for manufacturing and logistics across 30 of our European manufacturing and distribution sites," said Hans Cordes, CEO of Saint-Gobain Sekurit. "After initially deploying the system in eight Spanish sites, we were able to roll out German and French versions to another 22 sites in a 13-month period. We were able to deploy these first 30 sites across Europe in less than two years because we implemented a single supply chain solution of SAP R/3 and FlexNet."
"This 1,500 user deployment at Saint-Gobain demonstrates all the key collaborative capabilities of Apriso and its FlexNet product," said Jim Henderson, president and CEO of Apriso. "FlexNet was designed from the ground up to extend the functionality of ERP applications to provide detailed traceability and visibility across multiple sites. FlexNet is the only product that locally manages, out-of-the-box, all the elements of manufacturing (materials, labor, equipment, tooling, and documentation) while also working tightly with ERP to provide global visibility and control across multiple sites. Saint-Gobain leveraged FlexNet's strengths into a world-class IT solution for their operations."
