Le défi

Kennedy experienced a great deal of growth that wasn’t being efficiently managed across its two manufacturing plants. Their custom built software system could no longer handle increased production, including jobs and projects that could taking anywhere between 2 months and several years to complete.

“For the past 30 years, we used a custom built software system. By mid-2014, we had far outgrown that particular system and were looking for a solution that would meet our unique needs as a custom fabricator,” says Pat Kennedy.

Kennedy’s old system presented many challenges, according to Bill Kennedy, purchasing manager and one of the 5th generation Kennedy in the company. According to Bill, the old system was “slow and difficult to track.”

“In particular, it was difficult to get [request for quotes] out and to track the historical cost of materials,” said Bill Kennedy. “Additionally, receiving was slow as purchase orders were displayed line by line and it took two employees to get the job done.”

As a custom steel plate manufacturer, Kennedy Tank was looking for a software solution that would meet the unique needs of a custom manufacturer. Pat Kennedy decided it was time to find a solution that would allow the company to grow in the modern, competitive landscape of manufacturing. Furthermore, the management team at Kennedy were in need of an ERP system that would track their jobs and projects in a seamless and easy-to-use way.
