Filtering out ERP

Leading Manufacturer of heavy-duty filters in North America consults Microtek Systems to streamline and improve ERP infrastructure 

The Manufacturing Scenario Today

A recent study of the manufacturing segment states that 63% of manufacturing organizations exceed their ERP budgets and their overheads tend to be higher than the average among all industries. This is due to the complex nature of manufacturing ERP systems which require customizations and integrations.

The Business Situation

One of North America’s leading manufacturers of heavy-duty filters were the victims of the ERP challenges faced by the manufacturing industry. The company had several instances of legacy ERP system CINCOM, which was ported on separate servers. This was resulting in over capacity of hardware and IT resources as well as integration issues with other ancillary systems. All these challenges resulted in operational issues, barriers to improve company-wide efficiencies and obstacles to growth….until Microtek came aboard.

Microtek to the Rescue

Microtek helped the client reduce their ERP infrastructure costs and streamlined operations by designing APIs and Integration points from the Oracle Apps System with their ancillary systems. Microtek consultants were the part of project team to provide Oracle Apps 11.x technical and functional support during this upgrade project. They also developed customized reports and forms that improved business processes agility.


Upgrading to Oracle Apps transformed ERP systems, optimized and streamlined manufacturing operations to a large extent. It resulted in automation of supply chain processes, reduced financial reconciliation time, improved inventory turn and reduced inward cycle time, making overall business operations agile, adaptable and flexible to the dynamic needs of the marketplace.
