Aerts NV

Whoever works on a sophisticated brand policy and logistical processing at top level while providing a better service has already taken a major step towards the top. This has been demonstrated in the meantime by the glass and decoration wholesaler Aerts NV.  With the introduction of Microsoft Dynamics NAV they streamlined the logistical, administrative and financial processes across the whole the company, while immediately freeing up resources to satisfy the customer demand for an increasingly better supply of information. The integrated platform introduced by iFacto will also allow Aerts NV to continue to optimize and innovate in the coming years, from the integration of a forecasting tool to e-commerce.

VARO

As an importer and distributor, VARO in Lier has a gigantic warehouse: a total surface area of 22,000 m2, where no less than 22 million euros worth of electric and hand tools are awaiting orders from the DIY chains. This means there is always plenty of hustle and bustle at VARO: no fewer than 1,200,000 order lines must be processed each year, the warehouse staff are busy with all the picking, and the maintenance of the machines must also take place on top. Automating a company of this size is no easy matter. But iFacto succeeded perfectly with the implementation of Microsoft Dynamics NAV, supplemented by a very powerful WMS application.

FACE

As a distributor and integrator of professional audiovisual equipment, FACE offers a unique form of logistical services: under the name ESP (European Service Point) the company takes responsibility for all the logistical activities of manufacturers for the distribution of their products on the European market. Together with the traditional distribution activities, this results in an annual volume of 120,000 outgoing packages and more than 7,000 collective invoices. Speed and efficiency are decisive for the success that FACE is enjoying today; the investment in Microsoft Dynamics NAV and the iFacto Distri+ module proved to be the winning formula. FACE maintains perfect control of the growing logistical activities, and even uses the opportunity to offer customers a fully-fledged e-commerce website as an extra service.

Piscaer

Electrical wholesaler Piscaer in Mechelen was at a dead end with its old IT infrastructure. Renewal was put off because of the too high development costs, while much time was being lost at the counter on administrative rigmarole. Since 1 January 2008 Piscaer has again been in the IT fast lane. The implementation of Microsoft Dynamics NAV as a business application saves the personnel innumerable hours each and every week, so more time is left to serve customers in the most flexible possible way. This is not unimportant because a top quality service has been symbolic of Piscaer since the very outset.

Ufttools - Uftlas

Maintenance and engineering departments, industrial enterprise, SMEs... Since 1971 thousands of companies have been calling upon wholesaler Ufttools - Uftlas when in need of welding materials or tools. The take-over of Ufttools - Uftlas by the current owners in 2007 immediately marked a new start for this ambitious company. Special attention to professional IT was one of the logical consequences: processes must be able to be controlled and integrated with speed and efficiency. The cooperation with iFacto resulted in the introduction of Microsoft Dynamics NAV and the iFacto Distri+ module.

D&M Depot

D&M Depot in Aartselaar distributes its own collections of glassware and stoneware as a decorative article wholesaler.  
The company has been enjoying strong growth in recent years and has opened an office in Hong Kong. The old DOS-based IT system developed by one person was due for replacement by a future-oriented platform that could offer full integration of the financial and logistical processes.  
IT partner iFacto Business Solutions not only implemented an integrated webshop on top of Microsoft Dynamics NAV, it also developed a mobile application with which the D&M Depot staff could register orders at trade fairs.

CCI

CCI nv, an importer of various Japanese electronic appliances, had already been using an integrated industrial package for years. The system worked reasonably well, but fell short when it came to management reporting. Certain business processes were also still managed by separate applications. When the application reached saturation level, CCI decided to explore the ERP solutions market. The search ended with Microsoft Dynamics NAV Distri+, a universally applicable total solution that would also not cost the earth. It was IT partner iFacto, with its extensive experience in the electrical goods wholesale sector, who CCI entrusted to carry out the implementation.

Elec-Lightin’Art

Elec-Lightin’Art, a wholesaler in lighting, home automation and electrical installation material, had already been in search of a business management system that could automate all processes with as little as possible custom-made work for some time, or in other words: a standard solution in line with the requirements of the sector.  
In iFacto Distri+, Elec-Lightin’Art found the ideal solution for the efficient automation of all its administrative, logistical and sales processes. Combined with the powerful BI Cubes from Microsoft Dynamics NAV, this provided the required insight to ensure continued healthy growth.

Gehco

With boosting sales and reducing costs in mind Gehco, a distributor of sustainable fastening materials and building tools, took the decision to invest in Microsoft Dynamics NAV. Thanks to the specific Distri+ module from iFacto, Gehco can now further grow without extra personnel while expanding the range with an enhanced delivery service.

De Meester

It is essential for De Meester to deploy its staff more efficiently with as much automation as possible, and with a solution that can grow with the company. That is why De Meester opted for the Distri+ module from iFacto based on Microsoft Dynamics NAV. Distri+ offered advantages including faster processing at the counter, effective article management and simple purchase planning.

Goodwill

The distributor of Christmas decoration, Goodwill, has a very specific business process because of the peak season. During 9 months of the year, Goodwill works with a virtual stock to register orders that are also not yet billable. The company was looking for an integrated ERP solution enabling in the first place more efficient and correct sales over the various channels. Thanks to Microsoft Dynamics NAV and Distri+, Goodwill now shows a more efficient customer service and better sales performance. In addition, the integration with a Sana web shop accounted for 15% of the first year’s turnover.

Diginet

The distributor of video materials and installer for the broadcasting industry, wanted to show its entire product portfolio to its customers. That is why Diginet chose a Sana webshop driven by Microsoft Dynamics NAV and Distri+. Previously, the company had worked with an older version of Microsoft Dynamics NAV and with another partner, but needed an ERP solution for its distribution activities. Therefore, Diginet chose an upgrade of Microsoft Dynamics NAV with iFacto Distri+. In addition, the company deployed warehouse scanning, the Document Management System (DMS) Datahaven and the reporting tool Jet Reports, which are all integrated with Microsoft Dynamics NAV. Thanks to this total solution Diginet will make the difference in the digitizing market.
