Portek International Pte Ltd (Portek) today announced it will be using Epicor enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution to help the company further streamline its engineering business operations in Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia and Indonesia.
Headquartered in Singapore, Portek is a global mid-sized terminal operator and port equipment and engineering solutions provider. It has offices in over 10 countries across Africa, Europe and Asia.
The Epicor ERP enables Portek's management to have a single and consistent view of the engineering business by consolidating its disparate systems. For instance, the new platform will link up Portek's various warehouses to provide visibility into overall inventory levels and resource needs in real-time. This enables Portek to improve supply chain planning and overall business efficiency, as well as reduce the cost of operations.
Using Epicor ERP's reporting and cost analysis tools, Portek can also obtain real-time data and reduce the time taken to generate reports.
Tok Soon Chong, chief technical officer for Portek, said: "We selected Epicor after much deliberation, because we believe Epicor ERP will maximise productivity across our engineering businesses and optimise resource planning, which will help us manage continued business growth."
Epicor ERP will be first introduced to Portek's Singapore office, followed by offices in Hong Kong, Malaysia and Indonesia by mid-2014.
