Deacom, Inc., the developer of a comprehensive Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution, has recently kicked off implementation with Transtar Autobody Technologies, a manufacturer of one of the most extensive repair, refinish, and detail product lines for the automotive aftermarket. Centralizing operations with Deacom’s ERP platform is a great example of Transtar’s dedication to developing, producing, and marketing quality products.
“Running our business on a module-based ERP system has forced us to move much of our daily work outside of the main software,” said Dennis Redies, Director of IT for Transtar Autobody Technologies. “Much of what we do relies on formulation and quality control but relying on these silos of data was challenging our ability to service our customers at the level we hold ourselves to. We needed to improve the ways in which we collected, analyzed, and applied data – including customer feedback.”
During ERP evaluations, the ability to keep all functions of the business within a single piece of software is what drove Transtar’s decision to select DEACOM ERP. By creating one of the industry’s largest set of manufacturing-specific, native capabilities, DEACOM is able to deliver users a thorough view of business operations with real-time data. For example, when Transtar alters a paint formula, it is instantly reflected in the inventory, production, and MRP data so business can continue to run seamlessly and without delays. There is no need to log into and out of various 3rd party applications and risk errors while manually transferring data.
“Its built-in capabilities provide us with operational transparency that will strengthen our processes, maintain our quality, and keep us competitive. We are confident that the all-inclusive software will simplify our lives,” Redies continued.
