About us

Market leader in the sector of high-precision mechanical components, in particular of recirculating ball screws, for both the aeronautics and industrial sectors, the Umbra Group has grown immensely in recent years through the acquisition of foreign companies. Today, it’s streamlined operations and smart integrations have made it an international group with four branches in Europe and one in the United States, a workforce of about a thousand people, and a turnover of approximately 130 million euros.

Benefits

The business process reengineering project achieved full integration of all production, commercial, and logistics processes, with an overall improvement in the business performance of the entire group. Today the management can rely on a single and rational organizational system that corresponds to the needs of a small multinational and that, when necessary, permits the rapid integration of new acquisitions.

The global implementation of the Microsoft Dynamics AX platform has allowed the different companies to share business data, lowering management costs while improving planning and control capabilities, as well as human resources management. Specific benefits have been added by the Business Intelligence module, which has bolstered monitoring of the efficiency objectives of the production cycle. Additionally, the human resources component has made it possible to shift to streamlined and structured management of the various professional figures, facilitating competency certification (vital in the aeronautics sector). The integrated management of the entire production chain has helped shorten delivery time as well as response time to customer enquiries.

Insbesondere die Business-Intelligence-Funktionen brachten enorme Vorteile: Durch sie können die Effizienzziele für den Produktionszyklus nun optimal überwacht und gesteuert werden. Für den Bereich Human Resources hingegen wurden Funktionen eingerichtet, die eine effiziente und strukturierte Verwaltung der verschiedenen Stellenprofile ermöglichen, was die Anerkennung und Zertifizierung von Kompetenzen und Fähigkeiten potentieller und tatsächlicher Mitarbeiter im internationalen Rahmen wesentlich vereinfacht (fundamental vor allem für den Luftfahrtbereich). Schließlich konnten durch die integrierte Verwaltung der gesamten Produktionskette die Lieferfristen und Reaktionszeiten auf Kundenanfragen erheblich verkürzt werden.
