The Business Need/Challenge
Chicken Cycle-Kit had experienced a surge in new business activity, which led to a rapid increase in revenue and growth of their operations. However, this sudden business growth presented them with a software challenge, since their existing solution was unable to cope with the increase in transactions, preventing them from supporting the current- growth and achieving further growth.
Their bespoke system lacked integration, reporting and drill-down options, as well as adequate functions for stock control, sales & marketing, and financial analysis. This was creating delays and loss of valuable time for both individuals and the company. It was taking too long to perform seemingly straightforward tasks, reducing profitability in other areas of the business. In addition, when information was required, it wasn’t easily accessible or up to date.
Chicken Cycle-Kit recognised that they had to change their business software applications and thoroughly researched a variety of ERP solutions before selecting Microsoft Dynamics NAV. Their NAV partner, Evo-Soft, were able to demonstrate how Microsoft Dynamics NAV had the capabilities and functionality they needed for the business to run smoothly.
Chicken Cycle-Kit built a good working relationship with Evo-Soft during the research stages and were impressed with their knowledge and expertise in delivering the right application to meet their needs. Microsoft Dynamics NAV allowed the company to integrate and centralise all of their core operations, such as finance, inventory, and sales, which helped increase productivity, support growth and adapt as the business requirements changed.
An additional motivator in the decision to invest in NAV was its configurability and how the system could be tailored to fit their business, helping them to operate more efficiently.
