In 2019, Riedon reached out to CMTC for help with the company’s software system. The existing system relied on a number of spreadsheets to support finance and operations, lacked functionality, and was slow and inflexible. As Riedon’s business expanded, the software’s limitations prevented the company from moving forward against the competition. Riedon’s management team was looking to investigate new business systems to provide decision-makers with easier access to information about business operations, sales, and markets.
From May-August 2019, CMTC provided resources and expertise to perform an enterprise software selection (ERP, MRP, and key modules) to address long-term business system needs. CMTC worked closely with key Riedon managers and employees beginning with a thorough and clear understanding of the business and future growth goals; identifying and qualifying vendors and implementers; preparing vendor demos and vetting references. The planning methodologies and deliverables were specifically designed to provide Riedon’s management team with the tools they needed to efficiently evaluate, and subsequently select, viable enterprise systems.
Riedon attributes significant results to CMTC’s guidance through the ERP project, reporting $40,000 in cost savings, $100,000 in capital investments, $100,000 invested in workforce practices, and $70,000 invested in information systems and software in the past 12 months. The company was also able to retain 1 to 2 jobs following the ERP implementation.
