"As a manufacturer, we needed a solution that could handle the full cycle covering manufacturing, inventory and financials. NetSuite is extremely robust and gives us scalability to grow."
Designer and manufacturer of high-quality cosmetic brushes have improved operational efficiency 25% since upgrading from MYOB to NetSuite.
Since going live in June 2012, NetSuite has supported 19% revenue growth for Anisa, named to the Inc. Top 5,000 Fastest Growing Companies in America list.
NetSuite manufacturing capabilities, introduced in December 2013 at Anisa's wholly-owned 600-person factory in Tianjin, China, help streamline production of 22 million cosmetic brushes a year.
NetSuite manufacturing enables Anisa to reduce waste and inefficiency at the China plant with capabilities for bills of materials, work orders, assembly and bin-level management, routings and requirements planning.
Creation of purchase orders and bills of materials from sales orders for China production are automated through workflow, saving significant time over previous manual processes.
Using NetSuite, Anisa is rolling out new metrics-based monitoring of on-time delivery, volume and quality and other measures at the China plant, with performance bonuses for personnel based on quantified data.
OneWorld multilingual capabilities support Mandarin language for NetSuite usage by Anisa personnel at the China manufacturing subsidiary.
NetSuite enabled Anisa to bring new physical controls to inventory management at the China plant, accounting for raw materials, work in progress and finished goods.
NetSuite enables greater efficiency to help Anisa expand its business of producing cosmetic brushes and kits for 75 brands including Sephora, Target, L'Oréal and Estée Lauder.
Breakthrough visibility into sales, inventory and profitability enabled through NetSuite are helping guide strategic decisions for Anisa’s growth.
Anisa has accelerated its invoicing processes and cash flow by up to three weeks since going live on NetSuite.
Monthly financial close time has been reduced from two weeks to one week.
Limitations in MYOB data capacity, reporting capabilities and inventory management resulted in daily challenges and time-consuming manual work.
Absence of sophisticated IT software and infrastructure at the China manufacturing plant created manual workflows, unnecessary waste and undermined corporate visibility.
Performance management was limited by Excel-based reporting on China operations.
Lack of multilingual support in MYOB prevented rollout to China personnel.
Cloud ERP and manufacturing capabilities met Anisa’s desire to avoid in-house software, servers and a costly IT department.
NetSuite OneWorld and manufacturing capabilities supplied an ideal combination for brush production in China with on-demand control and visibility from the U.S.
Services by NetSuite Solution Provider partner Trigger Networks, based in Beijing, helped ensure a quality implementation meeting Anisa’s unique business demands in China.
