154 years old, with its parts in 80% of houses and 55% of cars worldwide – Brandauer is embracing the future with a new computerised digital transformation strategy.
Birmingham-based Brandauer started life in 1862 in the Victorian era as a steel pen manufacturer and now has a global presence, exporting 75% of its products with a goal to become Europe’s leading independent high-precision metal component specialist.
Supplying over a billion parts a year, their biggest sector is white goods and they dominate with 80 per cent of the world’s market using their precision components.
However, years of legacy systems had left Brandauer run by manual spreadsheets rather than a core software system. It was not a joined-up operation, with separate manufacturing and accounting systems, and spreadsheets on top. The old system simply was not up to the job and in choosing Microsoft 街霸5 and Dynamics 街霸5 /CRM with Technology Management, Brandauer can now access new markets and new customers.
Investing in the latest technology is helping Brandauer to reach new heights, and at Technology Management, we give them the tools to use that technology more effectively.
By using Microsoft Dynamics, Brandauer have:
- Cut out the paper
- Have information at their fingertips
- Have a single system to keep track of everything from finance, to manufacturing to customer interactions
- Streamlined operations to help remove wastage
- United Kingdom
It is not a new IT system, it is a business simplification project. We have reinvented our business process and Technology Management have been fundamental in helping us through that process.Rowan Crozier, Chief Executive, C Brandauer
