Kvaser AB chooses Jeeves ERP for the future
Kvaser is a world leading Swedish-owned Company, with more than 30 years’ experience in advanced CAN-development. CAN stands for Controller Area Network, which is a safe network for instruction control units that can be found in for example vehicles, elevators and medical equipment. Kvaser develops and sells CAN hardware to companies that in their turn, design and develop software solutions for the automotive, truck, buss, aviation and medical technology industries, to name a few. All the product development takes place in Sweden, at the head office in Mölndal. However, with a global network of partners and several sale offices and warehouses in Hong Kong, Shanghai and Los Angeles, Kvaser absolutely has its place on the global market.
A system that is ready for the future and can handle multiple geographies was important when choosing the new ERP-system
Kvaser is following a steady and stable growth curve and they have grown out of their old current ERP-systems in the last few years. – We looked thoroughly at several different ERP-systems before making up our minds. It was important for us that we found a system that would be able to meet future needs without being too big or too small: A system that will welcome growth – even growth on the international market, says Claes Haglund, Supply Chain & Quality Director at Kvaser, who has been part of the ERP- project since it was started. With Jeeves ERP Core, Kvaser gets access to all the core features in the system, such as Manufacturing Management, Supply Chain Management, Sales Management, Customer Relationship Management, Product Management, Service Management and Projects and Assignments. The implementation will include all Kvaser’s sites/countries where Sweden is acting as a template company during the rollout process. With local sales offices and warehouses in many different countries, Kvaser needs a system that can handle many different sites; a system with so called Inter Company Transactions- features. The ICT feature is one of Jeeves strengths, and one of the reasons for why Kvaser chose Jeeves as their ERP-system provider. Since their organization is scattered across many different geographies, the company also required a solution for e-invoice management. Thanks to Jeeves eApproval, Kvaser will easily be able to handle their supplier invoices internally. Kvaser was also searching for a flexible ERP-system that is easy to customize and develop further:
Since Kvaser is a technologically driven company where we develop, design and manage our products in many different systems, such as Altium Vault and Enovia, we were also in the need of an ERP-solution that was easy to integrate with other systems. Thanks to Jeeves ERP, we will be able to follow the whole PLM-process in one fully integrated system, finishes Claes.
