"With Epicor, consistency of data is reality, and that gives confidence to our organization, vendors and customers."
Rafael Marrero, IT Manager | Grupo Reveex
Based in Maracay, Venezuela, Grupo Reveex is a company dedicated to the manufacture of pharmaceutical and nutritional products for veterinary use, as well as agrochemicals and pesticides. The Group consists of three companies: Laboratorios Reveex, Reveex Nutricion and Reveex Agricola. The area of animal drug products of Laboratorios Reveex was founded in 1979 and is the oldest company of Reveex Venezuela.
Grupo Reveex's mission is to produce and ensure veterinary medicinal products of the highest quality according to strict international standards developed to reach the goal of being world leaders in the market.
In 2007, Grupo Reveex began an accelerated growth stage that led them to seek a new technology alternative. They needed an enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution that would enable them to support their growth without neglecting customer service, an element of vital importance to the company.
Technological innovation as the key to success
To streamline operations, Grupo Reveex selected Epicor iScala in January 2008, after a careful evaluation of the solution in addition to solutions offered by two other vendors of high reputation in the industry.
"We chose Epicor based on the positive experiences of other companies in our industry," said Rafael Marrero, IT manager for Grupo Reveex Venezuela. "After hearing what the Epicor solution offered us, and given the integration issues for the administrative accounts with the system we had, we decided to migrate all group companies to this platform."
A year later, in January 2009, Grupo Reveex was running its operations with the new technology solution; in a relatively short time Epicor gave major benefits to the three companies of the group.
The importance of teamwork
The plan to implement new software was soon shared with all of the company staff. With proper coordination of efforts, the company began to see results over time.
"Teamwork made the project go faster than expected; we followed the Epicor way for the implementation. We created teams, everyone did what they had to, and soon things began to fall into place," said Marrero. "At this time, we felt very confident with the consultants that Epicor assigned to us, and their knowledge of the pharmaceutical industry."
Epicor leverages grupo Reveex operations
After implementing Epicor in Grupo Reveex, the way the company works, and the results of everyday work changed dramatically. The area where the most benefit has been achieved is manufacturing.
"With the previous system, we did not have accurate batch control. This integration is accurate and traceable, which creates great satisfaction inside and outside the organization," said Marrero. "On the other hand, management of power factors in the raw materials was finally automated, saving plenty of time in the everyday product manufacturing."
The sales area has also achieved important improvements for the Venezuelan company.
"The department has been powered in a short period of time, and now the staff has information that comes from Epicor to their mobile devices. The most important thing is that everything is integrated; vendors know when the order has already been loaded because we have a whole string of data in the system," said Marrero. "With Epicor, consistency of data is a reality and that gives confidence to our organization, vendors and customers."
With Epicor, Grupo Reveex has obtained a significant increase in operational efficiency.
"Today, direct and indirect users work in the Epicor platform though a mobile intranet and portal. All of them are now experiencing the flexibility on business processes, they have information that is always available, and are confident that they have a flexible and scalable software solution that will grow with Grupo Reveex," concluded Marrero.
