As a manufacturer of aftermarket filters for controlling air pollution at industrial sites throughout North America, it was crucial for Standard Filter Corporation to maintain an updated IT environment in order to stand apart from their competition. Unfortunately, the corporation found itself in an environment of outdated technologies and systems, and found itself facing challenges trying to provide the quickest service. That’s when The Network Co. of California came in – offering solutions that made sense to Standard Filter Corporation, they were able to dramatically improve the IT environment without the hassle that Standard Filter Corporation was preparing for.
If a company begins falling behind in the world of technology, they are bound to face significant challenges with information technology and data communications in their daily processes, as well as challenges when the time comes to upgrade – due to retraining, and moving of data collections.
The Situation: The Need For An Updated IT Environment to Set Them Apart From The Competition!
With outdated technologies, Standard Filter Corporation was falling behind and realized it needed help updating its IT environment. The Network Co. of California was able to take their old technology and make it work in a new IT environment, dramatically improving performance.
Toby Wiik of Standard Filter Corporation explains how critical technology is to their corporation, saying, “Without the IT infrastructure we would not stand out from the pack.” He continues, “Using ERP allows us to have quicker quoting and quicker deliveries than our competitors.”
Standard Filter Corporation made the decision to seek help from The Network Co. of California as they had already been a client for over 20 years, and had established a large amount of trust. When the time was upon them, Standard Filter Corporation knew exactly where to turn.
The Network Co. of California created an R&D test environment and designed a solution that would allow Standard Filter Corporation to run their old 32 bit LOB app without purchasing a new ERP system -which would have run them over 140k-. The new ERP app would have taken over a year to implement, required the retraining of all their staff, the redoing of all their processes, and the migrating of over 10 years of historical data.
