Cutting Tool Maker Adopts ERP Solution

OSG Europe, a multinational manufacturer and distributor of precision cutting tools used in the automotive, aerospace and precision instrument industries, selected Compiere ERP to streamline operations. The implementation included order processing, inventory management, shipping, purchasing, financial analysis and accounting. The ERP system offers OSG Europe the ability to share country-level product, supplier and customer information enabling their central operations to have a consolidated view of these assets. OSG Europe worked closely with Belgium-based Compiere Partner, WinFloware, to integrate and customize Compiere to OSG’s specific business needs and support their rapid implementation.

“Compiere provides a modern, cost-effective ERP solution that not only delivers visibility and efficiencies across our operations, but also allows us to quickly and efficiently customize and upgrade it to meet our evolving needs,” said Nobu Osawa, managing director with OSG Europe. “The WinFloware team applied its deep knowledge and expertise of Compiere to setup and assist in the implementation, including data migration, user training and on-going maintenance.”

OSG Europe is the hub for consolidating activities of financially independent OSG subsidiaries in eight European countries. Unlike the company’s previous system, which was 20 years old, users can now work and produce documents in multiple languages and currencies, OSG pointed out. OSG Europe is also able to create separate accounts and automatically generate sales and purchase transactions within subsidiaries yet maintain a consolidated view of certain assets such as products, customers and suppliers.
