WAYNE, PA - Paint and Coatings Industry Magazine (PCI) and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) provider Deacom Inc. will present a free webinar on March 11 at 2:00 p.m. EST titled "Break Free from IT: How Fully Integrated ERP Software Can Provide the Roadmap for IT Independence." The hour-long event will explore how using a single ERP software system for manufacturers of paint, coatings, adhesives and sealants can help manage all aspects of a business - from formulation and inventory control to order entry and invoicing - without the involvement of an IT department.
The discussion will stem from the experiences of American Inks and Coatings, a major manufacturer of high-volume inks and coatings for the commercial packaging industry, which had been using 15 different databases and a remote IT department before implementing a fully integrated ERP and accounting system designed for the coatings industry.
Webinar participants will learn how American Inks and Coatings integrated all areas of its business, from formulation and quality-control testing to lot tracking and accounting, in a single system; how the company implemented that software solution, including data conversion, installation, training and technical support, in a seven-week period; and how the company more than paid for its ERP system in one year through its savings on former IT and business process impediments
At the end of the presentation, participants will have the opportunity to pose questions and comments to the presenters, PCI Managing Editor Kristin Johansson and Deacom President Jay Deakins.
