Everything at a glance
Navision is the core of the company at Boucherie: from production and planning to warehousing, logistics, after sales and purchasing.
Boucherie and NORRIQ have been partners since 2006. A whole range of developments has been implemented in the past.
In 2016, Boucherie decided to update their entire Navision package to the new standards, while saving the historical data.
Discover how the collaboration between NORRIQ and Boucherie has paid off.
Fit to the modern standards
The fact that the support of Navision 2006 would be discontinued, led to Boucherie reaching out to NORRIQ again to continue their ERP story.
Lisa Boucherie, the 4th generation of the company, says: “Since we had to switch to a new package anyway, we decided to go for more than just an upgrade. A lot of specifications that were on the wishlist were integrated additionally. ”
“The center of our company is the manufacturing accelerator used in the production department. We make nearly all parts ourselves and each part has an individual processing order. Thanks to Navision we can monitor this process and make sure each piece goes to the right machine and person for each operation. This is also connected to a time registration. With us, each machine forms a separate project in Navision and project management therefore is very important during an upgrade. We need to be able to monitor perfectly what has already happened, what still has to be done and in which phase each part is.
The accounting department is also included
"The necessary upgrade was an excellent opportunity for us to include the Microsoft Business Central Accelerator for our accounting department. We formerly used another package that was linked to Navision through an interface. The fact that now everyone can work in the same environment in the same package offers many advantages".
Boucherie's customers are also winning thanks to the update. "Ongoing projects can be monitored a lot better, making it possible to detect problems and delays more quickly within our processes. This has a positive effect on meeting agreed delivery deadlines. This is not easy, because we do not build standard machines. Everything is tailored to the customer's needs".
Accessibility as the ultimate benefit
Why Boucherie has chosen NORRIQ as a partner since 2006? "They always provide fantastic support. They are available when you need them, are helpful and knowledgeable. That accessibility and flexibility is very important to us," concludes Lisa.
The next steps are already planned. "Soon we will also implement the graphical planner in our system. Especially during meetings, a visual image that provides an overview is necessary. And this will be perfectly possible."
