Klaveness Footwear, in partnership with Arquiconsult, has been implementing several management solutions, namely the Microsoft Dynamics AX ERP, as a result of the need to find a global solution for the group’s companies, which would respond to the needs inherent to its internationalization. The collaboration with Arquiconsult extended to the Business Intelligence project, which emerged due to some internal failures at the reporting level. The project started in 2016, having evolved over time, with new areas and information being added as a result of the recent technological transformation, through the ERP upgrade.
“At Klaveness, the main gaps were in terms of Management reports, where we had the data in ERP and Excel files, scattered all over the place and we wanted to gather all the information in one place . We chose Arquiconsult’s service because it is our main partner in the ERP area and because of the satisfaction we have with the services provided so far.”, referred Nuno Moreira – IT & Logistics Manager.
The BI solution made available had a direct impact on the sales and production management area,
“the main indicators obtained being sales by different sales chains, sales by countries and efficiency in production by product range” indicated Nuno Moreira.</ p>
Klaveness has presented several opportunities to, together, adapt and improve the available solution, with new needs and business requirements that, over time, aim at improving processes.
As Nuno Moreira pointed out, “in terms of support, Klaveness is very satisfied, since the challenges that have arisen so far have had a quick response from Arquiconsult’s BI team. The cooperation between Arquiconsult and Klaveness has been very positive, both in terms of the roll-out of new projects and in terms of support. In Klaveness’ understanding, the partnership will continue in the future, in BI and ERP we have new projects in which we consider Arquiconsult to be the main partner.”
Klaveness Footwear is a multinational company manufacturing orthopedic footwear that developed a production unit in Portugal, in 1988, and has since then invested heavily in the development and marketing of these products. Maintaining close cooperation between orthopedic and research centers, Klaveness has, over the years, made a solid path in this activity.
