Challenges & benefits

Challenges & opportunities

  • Logistical challenge as products for different phases of production are moved back and forth between the Netherlands and both locations in the Czech Republic
  • Production losses and delays in deliveries due to unstructured coordination, information exchange via e-mail and administrations non-integrated by production locations


  • Flexible solution without customization was a hard requirement. SAP Business One was quickly adaptable to CIREX’s needs without customization
  • SAP Business One has intercompany integration that other software does not offer
  • Lots of proven experience with software projects of an international nature


A fully automated factory is located in the Netherlands, where robots and automated vehicles manage the entire production chain, from the moment of order to delivery. This advanced approach results in increased service levels for customers, thanks to improved delivery reliability. The accurate understanding of both productivity and efficiency has resulted in significant financial savings.

One integrated environment provides a single version of the truth that is accessible across all locations and stakeholders. In addition, this system provides the ability to effortlessly connect other sites, giving the company room to grow and expand without sacrificing efficiency and consistency.
