K3 gap analysis shows SIC how to boost profits

Electronic solutions manufacturer Swansea Industrial Components (SIC) Ltd converted to K3 Syspro’s advanced Enterprise Resource Planning solution, SYSPRO ERP, from its previous business software/manual system.

To gain further efficiencies from its investment the company recently upgraded the software and called in K3 Syspro to perform a gap analysis for comparing the company’s actual versus its potential SYSPRO use. Two years on and SIC is still experiencing the benefits of the gap analysis and has reported increased productivity and profitability from higher visibility of company data and therefore, reduced administration time.

K3 performed a gap analysis to show SIC’s management team those SYSPRO modules that were being used successfully and those modules that were not being exploited. The gap analysis provided a live document that identifies areas for improvement and this document is still being used by SIC today. Two years on from the initial gap analysis, the company is reporting increased productivity and profitability from the procedure.

“ERP is never static, it constantly changes and evolves and by identifying areas of the software we were not utilising fully, we have been able to save administration time and ultimately increase the profitability of our business.”

Thurlby had a very specific idea in mind when looking at ERP. They needed a successor for its aging systems that would integrate several programs, ensure continuity and remain current and supported for at least 10 years. They found all that and more with K3 Syspro.
