INTENTIA is providing Movex customers with ERP applications that are pre-configured for its key industries.
The QuickStep program is designed to help mid-sized companies lower the cost of ownership of a leading ERP solution by cutting implementation times by more than 50 percent.
QuickStep Food & Beverage will be generally available later this quarter. QuickStep solutions for the fashion, distribution and asset-intensive industries will be released later this year.
Focus on customers seeking a continuous improvement program
The heart of QuickStep is the latest version of the Intentia Application Suite, IAS 5.2, released in November 2005. The QuickStep solutions speed implementation of IAS by pre-configuring 70 to 90 percent of the key processes required by companies in each industry.
Moreover, they have been designed on a global basis, and provide full-functionality applications - not "light" versions. Customers can add additional features, components and customisation as part of a continuous improvement program.
The typical QuickStep customer will have sales of less than $US200 million.
Intentia expects customers will be able to implement QuickStep in three to six months, less than half the time required for a typical ERP implementation, with consequent savings in consulting and internal costs.
The QuickStep solutions have been designed by Intentia's industry experts. As a result, they incorporate best practices in each industry, based on Intentia's expertise in carrying out thousands of implementations over more than 20 years.
