For the Finance Department this project is crucial in an attempt to increase the effectiveness of business processes, controlling functions, and accounting operations automation. We have already enhanced the quality of analytical information as a result of the first stage of the project, and it allowed us to get deep analysis of agricultural products purchase operations.
The joint project team of Kernel and Innoware had an aim to take a fresh unbiased look at Kernel existed processes and find an opportunity to improve them. Thanks to new approaches, processes have become more efficient and controllable. For procurement activities, we integrated Microsoft Dynamics NAV with KernelEDocs SharePoint-based workflow system, which allowed the company to automate the contracts’ creation, approval, digital signing, as well as their storage. As part of the payment management processes implementation, we optimized the payment approval workflows, and transferred their processing to the “Payments Factory” division, and as a result, the speed and quality of settlements with suppliers has increased. During the first stage of the project, we have developed our own implementation approach that will allow us effectively implement the next stages of the project and minimize risks.
With the help of Innoware team, we have successfully implemented Microsoft Dynamics AX as our main ERP-system. For the purpose to manage human resources and salary management colleagues from Innoware helped us to implement IW HR & Payroll solution based on Microsoft Dynamics NAV platform. It is flexible solution that complied with Ukrainian legislation requirements towards HR and payroll calculation processes. Nowadays, the total number of employees at the plant is about 3 000 people, and IW HR & Payroll solution significantly increases the efficiency of work with personnel: it allows to conduct complex personnel management, payroll calculations taking into account the production specifics, and also to form all necessary tax calculation and statutory reporting.
Microsoft Dynamics AX appeared to be the appropriate and functional ERP-system for our company in view of price/quality ratio. Innoware consultants demonstrated thorough and diligent approach to the analysis of our business processes. As a result, the solution we’ve got at the moment of launch completely satisfied us. The transition period to the work in the new system took us about three months. Six months later we adopted it in full. Due to the implementation of Microsoft Dynamics AX, we managed to solve the problems with unsynchronized and scattered data, including discrepancy in balance sheets and stock balance inconsistency. Now we are implementing Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online, which will be integrated with Microsoft Dynamics AX. This will provide a single informational environment for the company's business processes management and gives us numerous advantages that we could not get earlier.
