Business Management Systems

Are BMS/ERP systems actually needed at all?

Practically, there are no more companies or organizations that do not use computer systems. Some companies have long recognized the difficulties associated with the interoperability and lack of integration of disparate solutions – this causes numerous problems and results in irrational moves such as multiple entry of the same data into different office applications.

Some enterprises formulate their expectations for IT support anew in order to achieve new business goals.

Finances – if you are seeing...

  • invoicing problems
  • payment backlogs
  • too many spreadsheets in use
  • problems with budgeting
  • time-consuming contractor settlements
  • troubles with fixed assets management

Logistics – if you are expecting...

  • matching stocks to orders
  • optimal rotation of goods
  • smooth procurement and transportation
  • optimal location of goods in warehouses
  • efficient procurement
  • effective warehouse management

Production – if you are coming across...

  • low machinery utilization effectiveness
  • the need for frequent changes in production schedules
  • problems with updating production documentation,
  • unnecessary downtime or overloading of machines
  • difficulties in meeting order completion deadlines
  • problems with a detailed accounting of production costs

HR – if you have...

  • time-consuming recruitment processes
  • difficulties in scheduling training
  • tedious work time tracking with errors
  • untimely payment of salaries
  • incomplete employee records.
  • lack of defined career paths
  • poor set of self-service functions

ERP system expansion
and integration

A perfect match to the requirements and needs of a company sometimes requires providing unique functionality. Then the attractiveness of an EMS/ERP system arises from its ability to integrate with modules supporting such processes outside the standard set of ERP modules. In other cases, it is necessary to go far in parameterizing the complete solution and custom-building additional systems, modules and functions to meet the organization’s individual process needs.

Kinetic is ready for instant integration with the following additional modules:

 

Advanced MES for production optimization

The MES provides automatic monitoring of production processes down to single machines.

Rillion - Data Management Systems

This module is designed to automate the purchasing processes from request to payment. Thanks to the shared database.

Epicor Data Analytics

The Epicor Data Analytics module collects data in its data warehouse to provide management information on the fly.

Dature - supply chain optimization

The SmartStock module is used to optimize the production and supply chain under decision uncertainty

Installation and operation
of ERP systems

Correct installation, maintenance, and effective operation of an ERP system can be carried out using a diverse IT infrastructure by a qualified team of experienced consultants. Changes to the functionality, installation of new releases, and control of interoperability with new versions of operating systems require constant supervision and attention.

Kinetic users can choose one of the following system use models:

Cloud

The entire system and full functionality can be accessed from any device with a web browser.
No additional software installation is required. Both public, hybrid and private cloud can be used. The cloud provider performs all patches and updates.

On-Premise

The system runs on the organization’s in-house servers, the IT department prepares the appropriate infrastructure, operating system updates, license management, data archiving and by itself provides the administration of the entire solution.

Managed Service

The supplier takes full responsibility for the applications, their performance and load, and monitors and fixes any problems and failures. The company can streamline system administration processes and reduce operating costs, thus reducing the total cost of ownership of the ERP system.

Body Leasing

The system supplier provides a team of administrators and consultants who, on a full-time secondment basis, maintain, update and develop the ERP system at the client’s site. They formally remain supplier employees, but their working time is fully dedicated to the client.
