They are challenging traditions in the plumbing industry with innovative ideas and smarter methods. To gain more control, VVS Prefab decided to implement ERP Cloud with help from RamBase partner BDO.
“To us, this is all about better management and more control. We went from a pretty simple accounting system to a complete management system that provides a new level of structure for us. We haven’t had a proper ERP system before now, and we’re convinced it is the right step to take”, manager of VVS Prefab Erik Kverneland says.
His company manufactures prefabricated plumbing units and have managed to move working hours from construction sites and into a factory. The result is a more efficient, predictable and sustainable reality for their customers. With the implementing of RamBase, the company hopes to gain more control of their operations and handle their projected growth.
“To us, RamBase have seemed like a lot more agile than other ERP Suppliers, and not as traditional. In terms of software functions, the system suits our type of business very well. We tailor our production to every client. Therefore, we chose a management system that is flexible, but still keeps us in control” Kverneland says.
Challenging traditions together
He also points out that one of the biggest reasons for choosing RamBase is that they will never have to worry about software updates. With RamBase, everyone is always on the latest version. New features and updates are based on user experience and feedback, as well as trends, new technology and pure passion from RamBase’s experienced team of developers.
“We are both an innovator in very traditional industries, where things have been done in a certain way for years. Instead of following everyone, we are bringing new ideas to the table with a passion for development”Per Kverneland, manager of VVS Prefab
What should change and what should be added? Getting the opportunity to answer these kinds of questions and influence how RamBase will evolve, has massive value for Kverneland. He calls it an investment for the future for VSS Prefab.
“It’s nice to have a partner that listens to what you say. To us, RamBase has already proved to be a lot more agile than other ERP suppliers, and not as traditional. With a cloud-based ERP system, we know we’re investing in the right technology. They have shown that they have the right competence and approach to make us better. We are both an innovator in very traditional industries, where things have been done in a certain way for years. Instead of following everyone, we are bringing new ideas to the table with a passion for development”, Kverneland says.
BDO leads the way
Being an innovator is never an easy task. Especially when you have to juggle between giving life to ideas and handling all the moving parts you find at a factory. Throw coordination of sales, project management, delivery, and logistics in the mix, and you got yourself the everyday life of VVS Prefab.
“Our main goal is to have better structure and control of production. We need a better overview of parts and flow of goods. With RamBase er are able to handle every process in a better way, from delivering an offer through the whole value chain to the products are delivered. It will also help us with service and maintenance. We’re confident that RamBase is the right investment for us to raise the bar quality wise”, Kverneland says.
