IHI Hauzer Techno Coating replaced the old PDM system (ProductStream) for PRO.FILE PLM and the old ERP system (Acto) for Exact Globe.
It was a lot, but that meant that IHI Hauzer only had to turn everything upside down once. Implementing an ERP and a PLM system at the same time caused a lot of headaches and took more time than expected but remained under control.

About the implementation of PRO.FILE and its purpose

The reason for the entire operation was the internationalization of IHI Hauzer. The manufacturer of vapor deposition coating machines for the automotive and tool industry, now also has branches in China, Japan and Spain, in addition to Venlo. The ERP system - Acto - could only process the Dutch language and only cope with the Dutch tax system. If automation were to be taken, they wanted a solution in addition to ERP that could streamline business processes. Therefore, the PLM system PRO.FILE has been chosen.
