After Achieving Remarkable Results with Lean Solution,
Lilly Software Customer Implements at New Employer
Hampton, NH (USA), October 5, 2004 — Lilly Software Associates, Inc., a leading provider of enterprise and supply chain solutions for manufacturers and distributors, today announced that Tim Draftz, Operations Manager for Seyller Industries, a Wathena, Kansas-based supplier of customized service and lube trucks to companies in several industries, has begun implementing VISUAL DBR®, Lilly Software’s leading lean manufacturing solution. After achieving remarkable results with the software in his former role as CFO/CIO at an Iowa-based transportation industry manufacturer, Draftz knew it would be a key to success at Seyller, as well.
“It took me 60 days to evaluate the company’s existing software and confirm my suspicions that it was inadequate,” said Draftz. “The folks at Seyller had seen an article about the incredible results we’d achieved with VISUAL DBR while I was at my previous company and, as a result, it took only about five minutes to get the approval to purchase the new software.”
With the implementation currently underway, Draftz is sure that the combination of Seyller’s outstanding products and the capabilities of Lilly Software’s lean solution will result in the company quickly becoming a dominant force in the industry. “While Seyller has been very well known in the Southwest, particularly in the mining industry, I’m convinced that VISUAL DBR is going to help us become an industrial leader in customer satisfaction, value perception, and order shipment cycle on a national scale.”
Mr. Draftz will be a featured speaker at Lilly Software’s Lean Manufacturing Breakfast, to be simulcast live from the San Diego Marriott during the APICS Conference and Exposition, October 13th, 7:00 AM to 9:00 AM. This is a rare opportunity to hear firsthand about the amazing results companies are achieving with Lilly Software’s leading lean solutions, directly from a customer who has implemented not once, but twice.
