Case Study: Georgia Systems Operation Centre
Do you work with multiple systems to meet business and legal compliance? If so, listen to this short video in which Edan Puritt, co-founder of Askari Solutions Inc., faces the significant challenge of connecting two major systems—a SharePoint front end to a LiveLink back end. In working with a Georgia power company Puritt solved the challenge of effectively connecting the systems so that work could happen on the front end and records could be maintained on the back end.
Edan Puritt led a team of six people on a 14-month SAP project at L&M Forwarding, an American-Mexican freight forwarding company based in Laredo, Texas. The objective was clear: improve the business process efficiency and effectiveness of the company. To accomplish this, a comprehensive SAP solution including the sales and distribution, material management, warehousing, finance, and foreign exchange modules was installed. Installing inflexible German software with an American consulting team in a Mexican company led to a series of cultural hurdles. This process was implemented in the heavily regulated environment of cross border trade and tariffs, leaving little room for ad hoc behaviour. Using a complex and highly developed system such as SAP, the important lesson was to use technologies for what they are meant to do. The parting advice is to configure where needed, but avoid customizing.
