Software Projects Consulting can help your business streamline operational systems, inventory tracking and more with local, hands-on support
Is your manufacturing company in desperate need of enterprise software to integrate all your operational systems for increased quality and efficiency? Or are you working with SAP, one of the world’s leading business solutions software systems, but failing to optimize its use?
In either case, Summerville-based Software Projects Consulting (SPC) can leverage SAP for your company’s customized needs — reducing cost, improving quality and efficiency, and boosting profit.
Since the beginning of the new millennium in 2000, SPC has offered its expertise in the SAP ecosystem, serving as business partner to longtime clients. A certified SAP Build Partner, Software Projects Consulting focuses on improving and optimizing internal and external logistics along the supply chain. SPC implements SAP-managed warehouses with RF and barcoding technologies, establishes SAP-driven quality control processes and material flows, develops operational and financial reporting systems and integrates them all to streamline business operations.
One manufacturing company working with Software Projects Consulting was tracking its quality inspection process for goods from suppliers in an Excel spreadsheet. They lacked a standardized process for determining what to inspect and were struggling with the downstream effects of products failing in the field. Software Projects Consulting implemented the SAP Quality Management module to fit the specific needs for that client. As a result, the SAP-driven process automatically arranges inspections according to predetermined principles and enables inspectors to record the results.
“The cost avoidance from a controlled procedure with built-in quality assurance lies in early error detection. You’re not putting away defective parts in your warehouse and potentially sending defective equipment into the field where it is far more complex and expensive to correct,” says Frank Muehlenkamp, CEO of Software Projects Consulting.
SPC partners with businesses over the long term, offering implementation, training and ongoing maintenance. Although the firm provides help desk services, it prefers to guide its clients to self-sufficiency on a day-to-day basis, and instead focuses on forward-looking projects that can further increase organizational and operational efficiency and excellence.
To that end, SPC is introducing two innovations that actually reduce the need for its help desk consulting but benefit the manufacturing sector generally. SPC is now providing turnkey solutions to common problems that can be applied universally and improve the management and transparency of affected processes. Additionally, SPC is working to partner with area educational institutions to develop an SAP-prepared workforce for the manufacturing sector. The added value graduates could provide to area employers would be significant.
Value-add is an important part of the Software Projects Consulting cosmos. The team of experts believes being on-site is as important as being online, and because of its proximity to customers, can respond in person to issues much more quickly than a consultant outside South Carolina.
Software Projects Consulting’s German roots are a boon to customers as well. Conversant in the cultural and language differences between the U.S. and Germany, SPC navigates potentially turbulent waters with ease, helping companies synergize the best qualities in either culture.
