Long-term K3 Business Technology Group (K3)customer, Black Cat Fireworks recently made a quantum leap forward with a major upgrade to its Enterprise Resource Planning system. For any company, the idea of changing from a system it has been using for years and moving to newer technology could potentially be a challenge. However, with K3 understanding the unique nature of Black Cat fireworks business and its IT requirements, the implementation and roll out of the upgrade went smoothly and has delivered significant benefits.

Black Cat Fireworks has been using various versions of SYSPRO from K3 since 1991, so the company knows the capabilities of the system and has trusted its features and functions to provide the IT backbone for the firm’s business. A key feature has been the additional bespoke programming requirements of the company for integrating other essential software such as a custom designed and developed load planning solution.

“It was a natural choice to stick with SYSPRO and K3 rather than look elsewhere. The K3 team knows what we need to run our business. The improvements from using SYSPRO 6.1 are immense.”
