Diloy is a company that manufactures and sells watch straps and other complementary products for jewelry stores. The material is manufactured by the company in different places, is imported into Spain and then sent to the network of distributors around the world, some of its own offices, or sold from the online store. NaN-tic has replaced its old ERP with a powerful tool and 100% adapted to the specific needs of the company. The benefits have been noticed in all areas of the company, but in a very special way in the warehouse, where the resources needed to manage it have been drastically reduced.
The manager of Diloy is a telecommunications engineer who is very clear about what his company needs and how far the possibilities offered by the technology can go. He contacted NaN-tic in order to replace the management tool that the company had and that was not at all adapted to its business model or its needs. In fact, Diloy employees used an ERP designed and designed for the textile manufacturing sector.
For this reason, Diloy was looking for a platform that was more standard input, but at the same time, flexible enough so that it could be adapted to his way of working and his business model, marked by a large international product distribution network of watchmaking and for large volumes of sales at very small prices.
Apart from the implicit improvements with the change of ERP, Diloy requested two specific solutions: efficient warehouse management and an application to facilitate sales of commercial agents in offline contexts, solution, incidentally, never seen in the sector of The watch straps.
The starting point of the project was a basic configuration of Tryton with many generic modules (warehouse, logistics, delivery note management, purchases, sales, billing ...). The challenge at this point was to overcome Tryton's limitations regarding some foreign currency changes in aspects such as sales rates or commissions. However, the technical solution applied was relatively simple and a 100% functional adaptation could be made to meet the large international distribution network of Diloy belts.
Then the design of a specific application for warehouse management was addressed. A customized system was programmed that has allowed to reduce a lot of time and many costs in the company. Now the system allows to speed up and automate the reception and delivery of products to the maximum, and that in the case of Diloy is of a very large volume. The reduction in the volume of work in the warehouse has been such that it has allowed the people in this department to be reduced by almost 50%.
Another application was also created with the objective that commercials could make sales to different watchmakers without having to connect to the internet at any time to consult references or any other information. At this point we have had to make an effort to solve the problems derived from the wide family of products that Diloy sells (and that is that of the same belt model there are different colors and sizes, with the corresponding sub-references) with the additional complication that not all The products have such variants, others, such as clock machines or batteries, are unique references. Therefore the developed application had to adapt to different product configurations.
Finally, the project has also allowed the simplification of management between companies of the same group, located in different countries, with different taxes and, in some cases, different currencies. Tryton by default already simplifies this type of operations, but in the case of Diloy, adaptations have been made, especially in stock management, so that the operations between companies with which it is usually related, is fully automated.
Diloy has greatly improved its management, especially in areas such as rate management, data management, accounting management, sales management, commission settlement ... Also, and for the first time, the company managers have been able to extract a lot of data of all these operations, which has given them valuable information to make strategic decisions relevant to the evolution of the business.
But, without a doubt, the point where the benefit has been most noticeable has been in the warehouse. Since its launch, the management has been automated so much that the warehouse employees began to worry when they saw that they finished the job much earlier than usual. This situation led them to think that there was a significant drop in sales, when Diloy was selling even more than with the old ERP.
As for the application for offline commercial management, it is something that improves performance and resolves possible coverage problems.
In any case, the growth of the project and the benefits for the company has been as fluid as it is palpable. The change of ERP and the commitment to NaN-tic has meant an indisputable improvement for Diloy.
