Nexgen Enterprises Goes With Technology Group International ERP

By: Thomas Cutler

Founded in 1990 and headquartered in Toledo, Ohio, Technology Group International is a proven technology leader delivering Tier 1 application software functionality at a price performance level that can be readily accepted by organizations of all sizes. Specializing in software systems for small and mid-market manufacturing and distribution companies, TGI's integrated Enterprise Series software suite is a complete business process management solution. The product offering includes Enterprise Resources Planning (ERP), Manufacturing Resource Planning (MRP), Supply Chain Management (SCM), Warehouse Management System (WMS), Advanced Planning and Scheduling (APS), Decision Support System (DSS), Business Intelligence, Manufacturing Execution System (MES), and eCommerce. TGI implements, maintains, enhances, and supports its packaged distribution and manufacturing software solutions directly and via its channel partners.

Established in 1920 and based in Cincinnati, Ohio, NexGen Enterprises operates a large number of building material distribution centers, as well as produces equipment for the building industry. The company has been in a growth mode for the past three years through natural sales increase and acquisitions. The acquisitions of companies required a solid IT infrastructure to help manage the newly acquired companies and to take advantage of the larger NexGen infrastructure.

NexGen had been looking at software for 18 months and found the selection process to be somewhat confusing and difficult. It retained an outside company to help identify the key critical success factors of the company and develop a long-term vision for the company. From this exercise, the company developed an RFI based on the functionality required to mange the vision of the company. Technology Group International (TGI), a leading ERP software solution provider, today announced that NexGen Enterprises Products has selected and implemented Enterprise 21 ERP software as the replacement package for its existing legacy system. According to NexGen, Enterprise 21 was selected based on function, price, and ease of doing business with the software vendor.

The implementation of Enterprise 21 will allow the company to manage its seventeen sales and distribution points utilizing one integrated view of the transactions and data. By doing this, NexGen expects to reduce local inventory balances, improve business processes, share customer knowledge across the seventeen locations, and to develop a centralized buying power for purchased material; all of which leads to better bottom line metrics.

Although just newly implemented, fast ROI is expected. The software has just been put into production and the most recognizable benefit is finding out how different each of the locations do operate and being able to look at methods for improving all locations.
