What challenges did Monte Banato overcome with Senior Software’s solutions?

Up until the collaboration with Senior Software, the manufacturer’s main issue was that the old ERP did not have any development perspectives and it caused various issues, such as: the lack of accurate data, of visibility over inventory and planned production, etc

Using software solutions from different providers caused a series of problems, such as the generation of erroneous prices, incorrect application of promotions, and so on.

With Senior Software’s solutions, our problems started to disappear, like after taking a painkiller. The list of benefits is quite long and continues to grow each day. We have benefits on all segments and levels.

An important benefit brought by the software solutions is the reduction to almost zero of the quantities requested by clients that remained unshipped. The system’s workflow helps eliminate human errors and optimizations are both on the sales side […] as well as on the logistics and production programming side. In the supplying area we can make purchasing foresights. Before, we had delays in tracking the evolution of costs and we had delays up to a month in updating production costs, while presently this is done in real-time and we have an immediate overview of variations […]. The latest benefits are tied to budgeting, to closing a month and doing P&L reports, where you can immediately see what costs were not billed
