Valcom Experiences Dramatic Results After Rapid
Implementation of Lilly Software’s Solution
Hampton, NH (USA), May10, 2004 — Lilly Software Associates, Inc., a leading provider of enterprise and supply chain solutions for manufacturers and distributors, today announced that Valcom, the world’s largest provider of integrated telephone paging systems, is experiencing dramatic results after the rapid implementation of VISUAL Enterprise™.
“With VISUAL Enterprise, we have drastically improved our buying, scheduling and follow-up processes enterprise wide,” said Jack Mason, president of Valcom. “As a result of the implementation, our people now have more time to take on strategic initiatives that directly affect the overall business performance of the organization.”
After an earlier attempt to replace their aging ERP system failed due to inadequacies in the new software, Valcom met with Lilly Software to discuss what VISUAL Enterprise could do for the company. The two parties signed an agreement on December 8th, and the full system was taken live at month’s end—only 18 calendar days after placing the order, considering that the company was closed for four days during the holidays.
“I can’t say enough about the implementation team,” Mason went on to say. “They were really dedicated to getting this system up and running in record time.”
VISUAL Enterprise has once again proven itself to be more than up to the challenge of addressing specific vertical industry requirements. The electronics industry is a demanding environment for a business system, with complex bills of material, hundreds of orders per month, and thousands of parts to procure and handle.
Valcom’s previous system had served them well when they were smaller, but could not keep up with increasing demands as the business grew. Lilly Software’s flexible, scalable VISUAL Enterprise solution is not only serving the company’s current needs effectively, but it will grow as Valcom grows to support future needs as well.
