Cladtek Improves Business Operations With Epicor

Founded in 2003, Singapore-based Cladtek is the world's largest manufacturer of weld overlay corrosion resistant alloy (CRA) products, and a global leader in CRA mechanically lined pipe (MLP). Cladtek counts most of the world's leading oil and gas industry contractors and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) as its customers.

Cladtek originally utilized a number of home-grown systems to support financial, procurement, and production functions. With further growth targeted, the company recognized the need for a consolidated and integrated system and the benefits that better access to and use of data would bring.

  • Existing data management systems were outdated and independently run
  • Plans for international growth required access to more and better-quality data
  • Needed to improve operational efficiency and be able to make decisions faster
The company knew its global expansion plan was not sustainable without a comprehensive enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution that would provide the management team with insight into every aspect of the business. Cladtek selected Epicor ERP and the eight-month implementation period for the Epicor ERP solution allowed Cladtek and the Epicor team to ensure the ERP system was integrated across all its locations and departments.

As a result, information is now available in real time, online, and integrated across all departments-allowing staff to foresee potential problems and prevent them from occurring in the first place. In addition, they are able to respond quickly when changes are necessary, so they can be twice as responsive to ever-increasing customer demands, market changes, and 24/7 business pressures.

Financial information is more accurate and transparent, and allows the management team to have better visibility of the overall business operations. The latest support features for multiple data sources in Epicor ERP are expected to realize even further benefits for Cladtek. With the means to publish dashboards on mobile devices and Microsoft SharePoint sites for improved collaboration, different departments and locations are able to better work together to deliver first-class performance and standards across the business.
