Portable toilet maker seeks to eliminate wasteful data entry in global ERP
October 28, 2011 – by
Using global ERP to manage the complex supply chains and financial transactions of multinational commerce is nothing new to Satellite Industries. But the Minneapolis-based manufacturer of portable toilets and rest rooms will take a big step toward managing global operations more efficiently when it upgrades this fall to the latest, more consolidated version of its Sage ERP X3 system.
Satellite’s perch is truly global. Besides its headquarters, the company operates a plant in Texas and a mix of manufacturing and sales facilities at wholly owned subsidiaries in the United Kingdom, Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium, along with several other offices, including its Asia-Pacific base in Hong Kong.
X3 helps keep the flow of money, materials and finished goods moving smoothly among the various entities and rolls it all up into a consolidated accounting picture, according to Satellite senior management.
