Stera Technologies - Supply Chain Evolution

"We started our journey together with Variantum in 2011, when we decided to automate our customer contract manufacturing order - and product manufacturing processes to shorten lead-time and to minimize human errors in order handling and in product structure creation to manufacturing.
Our co-operation with Variantum has worked without problems and Variantum has fulfilled its promises. When configuration model has been created and tested, system has worked flawlessly and reliably integrated to our ERP system."

"We have used sometimes Variantum’s help when we develop new customer product families, but mainly we have managed our product models and changes ourselves. Sometimes complex configuration model development is not easy, especially if you don’t have the experience.Variantum has delivered us business benefits through flexible and error-free production. We can now master complex parametric production structures cost-efficiently.Our message to other companies is that configuration model development certainly takes time, but the investment is really worth it! With Variantum, we succeeded to change our order-to-manufacturing process from days to hours.”
