“Epicor ERP was a clear winner in functionality and tecnology.There is also additional functionality for us to growinto over the coming year”.Chee-Wee Seow, PLP CFO Asia Pacific.
“Epicor’s ERP was a clear winner in functionality and technology. This gave us the confidence that the system was a solution we could use from day 1. There is also additional functionality for us to grow into over the coming year,” said Chee-Wee Seow, PLP CFO Asia Pacific.
“PLP investigated a number of solutions including QAD MFG/PRO and Infor Visual as part of a detailed evaluation process. COGITA and Epicor ERP were selected based on their ability todemonstrate extensive solutions to regional and local PLP management teams. It was evident early on that COGITA took time to understand our requirements and could demonstrate solutions to our needs that showed a deep understanding of the diverse manufacturing and financial business we operate”, says Chee-Wee.
PLP manufactures and distributes across Australasia and Asia, electrical power line equipment, fittings and cable hardware for the telecommunications and power sectors including solar power. The company also produces plastic mouldings, extrusions and rack system enclosures for communication and information technology firms.
Headed up by the Regional Managing Director, Norman Windell in Glendenning, New South Wales, PLP has manufacturing facilities employing approximately 590 staff across the region.
COGITA will supply PLP Asia Pacific, including Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia, New Zealand and Thailand with a new ERP system. “Although the solution represents a very high upfront investment for PLP, we are confident that, it will meet our long term objectives, and the total costs over the longer term makes this a very shrewd investment by PLP”, says Chee-Wee.
