Microsoft Dynamics NAV in pig breeding.

Success story:

TOPIGS-SNW GmbH is one of the largest suppliers of swine genetics. As more and more piglet producers are convinced of the products, the company is growing constantly. The core business of TOPIGS-SNW GmbH is to supply farmers with high-quality gilts in terms of fertility, longevity and fattening performance. In addition, the farmers are supplied with boar semen.

Challenge

„Our specialists advise and support producers so that they can optimally exploit the potential of our swine genetics. For this, we needed an individual solution in order to be able to have all the necessary operating information available on the go and to manage it in real time.

Before moving to Microsoft Dynamics NAV, we worked with four separate programs that were not linked to each other. Working with these standalone solutions had taken time because of the need to jump back and forth between the applications and the fact that we had to do multiple data entries.

Another problem was that we do not have any articles or stock in that sense. After all, we handle living animals. As a result, it was a challenge to map this feature in the program, taking into account various billing cycles.

Also our tour planning was suboptimal before the change to Microsoft Dynamics NAV. Many information and processes were not represented in the system, but rather stored in the minds of employees. For example, additional Excel spreadsheets and documents in paper form were increasingly used. The documents then had to be scanned again after processing in order to be able to send them by e-mail. That had cost us a lot of time and resources and too many mistakes crept in through human error.“

Objective

“The introduction of the new software should solve 3 critical problems in our company. We need to move away from different isolated solutions that are not interconnected. In addition, it is important that our field service has all important data available in real time, even when on the road, and that our route planning runs efficiently and smoothly.”

Solution

„By switching to anaptis, we can map and edit the four areas of contact information, scheduling, billing and accounting in one program. You can see, that our interface problems were solved. The programming effort has been very worthwhile in our opinion.

The challenge of mobile data retrieval was solved by Anveo’a Mobile App. Today, our field representatives can enter data in real-time that immediately become visible in Microsoft Dynamics NAV after successful synchronization. This eliminates the need for coordination processes: fewer calls have been required by field staff since the app was integrated. You can now find a lot of information of the program yourself. The elimination of calls saves time on both sides. In addition to the flexible retrieval of data, we also have many evaluation options with various Microsoft programs available.

Our tour planning is easier and more efficient today. We now have an automatic overview of all orders scheduled in a week. Previously, we had to create them manually. In addition, the tour planning, including the dispatch of the plan to the persons in charge, runs completely electronically via the system, without any printouts. This again shows the great advantage of Microsoft Dynamics NAV compared to other ERP systems, supplemented by the connection of the whole Microsoft product range.

Our conclusion is undoubtedly: Microsoft Dynamics NAV is optimally tailored to our company. Anaptis allowed an individual adaptation of the program and thus the extension of the standard package.”
