I successfully worked with Realising-Potential when previously implementing a financial system and, when Immersive needed to refresh its business systems, chose to work with them again… Their team focussed Immersive throughout the project to align its system, process and people, delivering improved information systems to support our strategic goals.

Details of Project

Industry: Technology Manufacturing
Service Type: Business Architecture

The Client

Is the world’s largest and most proven supplier of surface and underground mining equipment simulators to the global mining industry.

The Challenge

Rapid business growth across the globe and product differentiation had led to the implementation of a number of poorly integrated systems. There was no company-wide view of critical business information, such as inventory. This resulted in the various business activities having to undertake data extraction, manipulation and review processes to deliver management reporting.

The Solution

Our client recognised that an integrated financial and manufacturing system (ERP) would enable them to assess customer and product profitability across the world, as well as synchronising customer orders with inventory purchasing and production.

The Result

Realising-Potential was engaged to formulate the requirements definition, assist with the software and vendor selection process and the application implementation.
