The Client

About
bigHead Bonding Fasteners

bigHead fasteners have been going for over 50 years. With its own Dorset based factory, its team of designers, engineers and back-office teams work together to produce composite fasteners for some of the world’s leading brands and applications across a range of industries including automotive, marine and construction.

Understanding the Problem

The Challenge

bigHead had previously used Sage but the system was reaching end of life and struggling to cope with the capacity that the manufacturing firm needed in order to grow its business. With limited reporting, traceability and batch control it was evident that a new system was required that would provide a scalable platform to support the launch of its new product range.

Our incumbent Sage system didn’t allow us to automatically track our manufacturing bill-of-material or enable us to effectively manage our production and operations.

Making it Work

The Solution

Codestone implemented SAP Business One with Codeless Business Process Automation Platform (BPA) and the SAP Business One Usability Package.

The SAP technology provides a complete solution for all of bigHead’s business needs. From traceability for audit control, managing operations and business partners to procurement of source materials, bigHead has all the control and visibility it needs to streamline the business and launch its forthcoming new product range.

The time to create reports has been dramatically decreased by up to 20 hours per week. With live reporting data displayed automatically on easy to view dashboards, senior management can now easily stay abreast of KPIs, whether to check the latest delivery statistics or number of goods produced in a given week.

As an e-commerce business, a cloud-based ERP made complete sense. Once we were satisfied with the software and the pricing, and had met the Codestone team, we knew they were the right partner for GFG.
