After a long and thorough selection process, Nitrex Metal Inc. (hereafter called “Nitrex”) has entrusted Projexia and its team of SAP experts to oversee the implementation of their SAP Business ByDesign system.
Based in Montreal and comprising over 380 employees, and its divisions (hereafter called “Nitrex”) have become an international success following over 30 years of continuous growth. The organisation offers its services to multiple industries, including the automotive, aerospace, and the industrial sector.
Serving over 100 clients in 8 countries, Nitrex launched a project in 2017 to optimise its integrated information system to streamline its activities across the group by improving synergies between operations and improving profitability. In order to meet its increasingly complex business needs and pursue further growth, Nitrex has chosen to partner with Projexia and SAP to implement an integrated solution: SAP Business ByDesign.
Nitrex was specifically seeking:
- A system that can easily integrate with other systems and support Nitrex’s divisions;
- A scalable solution to support the organisation’s growth and diversification;
- Eliminate data silos and reduce the use of Excel spreadsheets;
- Eliminate redundant data entry;
- Generate consolidated financial and operational reports of multiple companies for head office to meet country specific regulations;
- Greater visibility into daily operations, tasks, and Key Performance Indicators (KPI), with role-based dashboards;
- Mobile tools for live access to schedules, work orders, and other information necessary to mobile employees.
SAP Business ByDesign was selected for its ability to answer the above requirements, its capacity to manage multiple companies across different countries, its inclusion of a BI solution, and deployability as a turnkey solution.
This new cloud ERP system will replace multiple software throughout the organisation and will impact three business units operating in the following countries: Canada, the USA, Mexico, Poland, Italy, Germany, France, and China. The implementation will affect more than 380 people and will include the Finance, Sales, Purchasing, Production, Service, and HR modules.
