Top production quality with the use of IFS ApplicationsTM at SIMET

The company has been operating with no interruption since 1970 and it employs about 270 staff, of which as many as 200 employees are handicapped people, thus making SIMET the largest supported employment enterprise in the region.

NEED FOR A CHANGE
The dynamically growing company, with such numerous staff and operating in extensive areas, required a modern IT tool that would comprehensively support the management of production, resources and HR.
To provide for the need, InfoConsulting Poland Sp. z o.o. carried out a project of comprehensive implementation of the IFS Applications ™ system in version 10.
Another element required for correct functioning of the company was to implement a tool for fast report generation. InfoReports, developed by InfoConsulting, proved to be an excellent system, meeting the customer’s expectations.
The project that lasted almost a year was split into two phases:
- pre-implementation analysis ended with a Solution Design,
- implementation ended with dedicated assistance after production launch.
The implementation was carried out by an expert team headed project managers: on behalf of SIMET SA – Adam Cimosz, on behalf of InfoConsulting Poland – Adam Domagała.
