Berlin, 25 November 2014 – PSI subsidiary PSIPENTA Software Systems GmbH has been contracted by the Esterer WD GmbH (EWD) with the implementation of the PSIpenta ERP suite. The ERP system is to support the optimisation of the processes and assure more transparency and efficiency.
The modules order management; cost calculation and shipping will be implemented in the initial phase. Upon the successful conclusion of the project the company intends to acquire additional modules such as operational data collection, business intelligence solution, project management as well as the modules for automated production control.
PSIpenta/ERP will replace the predecessor’s product Piuss-O that has been in operation since 1993. Decisive for the selection of the PSIPENTA solution were, along with the sector focus, the visits to two reference customers in the field of mechanical engineering.
