For more than three decades, Rabensteiner has produced and sold innovative, high-grade prefabricated and custom-made greenhouses, commercial nursery structures, greenhouse accessories, and shade/heating equipment throughout Europe. Efficient management of its order-based production cycle and the integrated sharing of information between its manufacturing center and design office were the main reasons Rabensteiner desired to update its ERP system, but it also needed to monitor all aspects of order management, including planning, budgeting, scheduling, and preparation of final statements as well as cost analysis, receipts, and profit margins.
Rabensteiner chose Microsoft Dynamics NAV with vertical Project and Service Administration (PSA), an ERP solution for NAV intended for companies that design, manufacture, and supply products and services on a project basis. PSA integrates completely with all of Microsoft Dynamics NAV’s other management functions, including accounting, sales, purchasing, warehouse management, planning, production, and client assistance.
With the new ERP system we have fully synchronized the management of every order with the production process, resulting in the maximum transparency of data about the various phases of the business cycle, and offering complete visibility of the progress of the production phase and the profitability of each order.
