Glovia International, a subsidiary of Fujitsu and a provider of extended enterprise resource planning services for engineer-to-order and high volume manufacturers, has reported that Oil State Industries has migrated to the current version of its Glovia suite.
Oil States, a Glovia customer for more than seven years, migrated in order to take advantage of additional supply chain management functionality, which has increased operational visibility and streamlined and standardized system use.
Prior to the migration, Oil States had been running the initially installed version of the enterprise resource planning (ERP) software. According to the companies, this older version was becoming difficult and time-intensive to navigate due to the high volume of customizations that had to be created to keep up with the growing business.
One of the most important steps we took in deciding how to proceed with adding additional functionality and streamlining our system, was to work with Glovia to perform a business optimization analysis (BOA), commented Linda Corbin, business systems analyst for Oil States. This process enabled us to see exactly where and what we needed to upgrade as well as how to best go about it.
