Project Overview: Global implementation from Australia to the U.S. using United VARs

Main challenges

  • Business was using a lot of different legacy systems with different spreadsheets
  • Low efficiency, not a single source of truth for proper decision making
  • Processes were fractured within the business and created problems with communication with the customers

Benefits for Makinex

  • Management has a very clear visibility of the performance of the business across the departments and countries of Makinex' global business
  • Improved efficiency and management focus on strategy rather than day to day operations
  • Improved Cash Flow
  • Clearer visibility of the stock holdings

"DXC Oxygen was involved in all stages throughout the rollout including design, testing and training, through the actual go-life implementation. Seidor was the local partner in the USA and their knowledge of the local landscape was invaluable. We were able to rollout in the USA only 2 months after we went live in Australia, in a very efficient and cost-effective way."
