Fives

As an industrial engineering group, Fives Machining Systems, Inc. designs and supplies machines, process equipment and production lines for the world’s largest industrials including the aluminium, steel, glass, automotive, aerospace, logistics, cement, energy and sugar sectors.

Challenge

While Fives Machining Systems, Inc. offered advanced solutions for their customers; the internal operations team had one issue that needed to be addressed  —  manual processes needed to be automated.  Fives Machining Systems, Inc.’s 600+ employees still submitted spreadsheets that were then manually entered and verified which led to:

  • Staffing for entering data
  • Long cycle of data issue resolution
  • Billing delayed up to 2 months
  • No transparency for forecasting

Solutions

A native service order entry app was built & implemented in just 30 days that features offline functionality.  This mobile app enabled Fives Machining Systems, Inc. employees who were spread across 30 countries to save time, reduce costs, improve cash flow and enjoy a host of benefits.

“The first app was so easy to launch and was live within weeks… we are ready to expand the enosiX technology to numerous business areas – the business is very excited.” – Jonathan Towner, Information Technology Director – Fives Machining Systems, Inc.

Results

The results were immediate and highly impactful:

  • Real time integration into SAP
  • Reduced DSO
  • Improved cash flow
  • Daily forecasting of billable services
