Client specializes in the manufacturing of precision parts, wire forming, multi slide parts, plastic injection molded parts, stamping parts and contact welding parts. Before implementation of Odoo ERP, the company was using Excel application without integration along with the various operations. Most of the scheduling process was manual and email was the communication channel for sending reports and tracking information.
We conducted extensive study on manual process of manufacturing, sales, accounting And also analyzed generating varies reports in organization, tracking and forecasting. We reviewed the existing process of Sales, Purchase, Manufacturing and Invoicing process. Document Gaps and identified key improvements in the process.
