Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA – November 19, 2020 – Epicor Software Corporation says Technofit Sdn Bhd has chosen its global enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution, Epicor ERP to integrate their business processes across the organisation.
The aim is to increase efficiency and accelerate business growth, says the global provider of industry-specific enterprise software.
Incorporated in 1998, Technofit focuses on the development of key industries such as infrastructure, power generation, and oil and gas sectors.
From providing boiler services and maintenance to numerous power plants in Malaysia, Technofit has now expanded its business scope and activities to companies in engineering, procurement, and construction installation.
The company is also engaged in commissioning for mechanical and electrical services, together with industry-compliant maintenance activities for various clients.
As an organisation that provides maintenance, support and construction services – both on a project and ad-hoc basis to large enterprises, Technofit needed a clear and in-depth view of their costings and budget.
Prior to using Epicor, most of Technofit’s data was managed in silos and manually processed using spreadsheets.
To have better visibility and control over budget and finance processes, Technofit needed a solution that can consolidate company data and integrate business processes. Technofit recognised Epicor as the perfect partner to help with their data integration and streamlining efforts.
With more effective systems in place, Technofit is now able to have a clearer insight into costings and budgets, achieve greater productivity and prepare the organisation for their future expansion plans.
“As our business grew and we started taking on more client projects, we realised that manual finance data processing using spreadsheets was no longer feasible.
“Moreover, having warehouses and offices in separate locations added complexity to the data management process. With the high volume of projects and ad-hoc customer requests, our processes were further strained and the risk for human error increased.
“Without a reliable ERP system in place, we had limited visibility on the overall health of the company’s finances which proved to be costly to the organisation in the long run,” says Mohd Kamal bin Zawawi, SNR quality & HSE manager, Technofit.
Mohd Kamal says the company opted for Epicor after researching various ERP solution providers in the market.
“We believe that Epicor’s cloud-first approach matched our business needs. We placed priority on cloud as we wanted to limit hardware investments and avoid other tag-along concerns such as server maintenance.
“With Epicor’s ERP solution, we expect better control on our project costings and budgeting, Technofit is grateful that Epicor had selected Stellar Dynamic Solutions as this project implementation partner, we are confident that with their signature methodology and continuous engagement with us will lead our business to greater height.
“Stellar Dynamic Solutions’ consulting team is professional and willing to transfer system know-how to our project core team which enable us to be self-sufficient and reduce the project total cost of ownership. ” Kamal adds.
Technofit, a leading service provider for the energy-specific industries, affirms the need for data integration as a crucial element for efficiency and growth.
Epicor ERP helps to integrate business data and processes across various business elements such as sales, purchase, inventory, warehouse, production, and finance. With a cloud solution, data can be accessed and utilised across multiple locations.
In addition, a cloud solution also enables customers to be updated with the latest versions of the solution when it is released – as opposed to being on-premise which involves running further upgrades.
Technofit aims to prepare the business for expansion while ensuring that day to day operations is managed efficiently, without having to invest in a large scale in-house IT team.
Therefore choosing Epicor ERP to support growth and productivity is a step in the right direction. In line with Technofit’s continuous commitment to innovation, the company is also considering Epicor’s DocStar solution to further elevate its day-to-day business operations in a seamless manner.
Vincent Tang, regional vice president for Asia at Epicor Software says, “We are excited to be able to support Technofit through our platform and solutions. Combined with our growth and focused development in cloud, and Epicor ERP’s features I have every confidence that we will be able to meet our clients’ specific business needs.
“With access to real-time data, improved visibility and ability to collaborate across business units within the organisation, Technofit is empowered to make better business decisions, improve efficiency and gain a competitive edge in the market. We are excited to be the strategic technology partner for Technofit’s business transformation.”
