NetSuite Cloud ERP Provides Philippine Paper Products Maker with Scalability, Flexibility and Agility
SAN MATEO, Calif.—May 18, 2016—NetSuite Inc. (NYSE: N), the industry's leading provider of cloud-based financials / ERP and omnichannel commerce software suites, today announced that Sanitary Care Products Asia (Sanicare), the premiere manufacturer of home and facial paper products in the Philippines, has implemented NetSuite to support and fuel its rapid business growth. Sanicare replaced Microsoft Dynamics GP, multiple Excel spreadsheets and manual processes with one single instance of NetSuite. Now, Sanicare is using NetSuite to run mission-critical business processes across 22 sales offices including financials, order management, reporting, shipping, bill of materials, multi-location inventory management, and multicurrency management in Philippine Peso and Indonesian Rupiah. Sanicare can also gain the scalability needed to manage high order and invoice volume, as well as operational efficiency, and the agility to get the system up and running rapidly while having a real-time view into its business performance. NetSuite's flexible and agile SuiteCloud Platform can also enable Sanicare to build industry specific functionality, in addition to EDI integrations with its retail partners, streamlining their order fulfilment process.
Sanicare was founded in 1996 and has experienced significant growth in recent years. Prior to NetSuite, Sanicare used Microsoft Dynamics GP, but the system could not keep up with the rapid pace of the company's expansion. The software would freeze up under high order volume, and was not properly integrated with separate inventory systems. This created costly inventory imbalances because Sanicare could not adequately account for raw materials and finished goods shipments. The lack of integration among Sanicare's business systems made reconciling orders and managing relationships with suppliers a gruelling, time-consuming process. A warehouse fire, which damaged the on-premise ERP servers, added to the company's data woes.
As Sanicare's brands gained traction through corporate and institutional clients, as well as independent retail channels, the company looked into on-premise solutions. But after careful evaluation, Sanicare selected NetSuite to manage its growing business. Working with NetSuite partner CloudTech, Sanicare implemented NetSuite in six months. Because NetSuite offers end-to-end ERP with financial and inventory data unified in a single system, Sanicare has complete control over the value chain and visibility across all its locations. The resulting efficiencies have helped to decrease order processing times, reduce the number of hours spent on financial analysis, and improve leadership's ability to monitor profitability and results in real-time.
“Before NetSuite, we did not have a comprehensive view of our business, only islands of information,” said Ven Sio, President at Sanicare. “The control we now have over our raw materials and finished goods is critical to our continued growth.”
NetSuite is vital to Sanicare's continued success because of the wide range of business benefits it can deliver, including:
By moving to the NetSuite cloud, Sanicare's vital records and data-driven relationships are no longer at risk from fire or other disaster events. The solution grows as Sanicare's needs grow, including the demand planning capabilities Sanicare will soon activate to further refine its production schedules.
“We now have the tools to understand how our business is performing at all times, from the largest retail store down to the smallest shops,” Sio added.
Today, more than 30,000 companies and subsidiaries depend on NetSuite to run complex, mission-critical business processes globally in the cloud. Since its inception in 1998, NetSuite has established itself as the leading provider of enterprise-ready cloud business management suites of enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship management (CRM), and ecommerce applications for businesses of all sizes. Many FORTUNE 100 companies rely on NetSuite to accelerate innovation and business transformation. NetSuite continues its success in delivering the best cloud business management suites to businesses around the world, enabling them to lower IT costs significantly while increasing productivity, as the global adoption of the cloud accelerates.
