Drilltec decided we needed to reimplement our Infor SyteLine ERP system – we’ve used SyteLine for many years but knew that based on how our organization has grown and changed we needed to take a fresh look at how we were executing our business processes and utilizing the system. We had the WM Synergy Center of Excellence team come onsite for Business Process Mapping; they were knowledgeable in best practice and kept us focused and on track. The event had our team participating in breaking down how we do things today and identifying the issues that need to be addressed to bring our organization to the next level. This was a great way to start our project – not only do we have the processes defined on how we’ll train, test, and use the ERP system, but our team is looking forward to changing the way they do things. I fully recommend this approach to anyone in a similar position.

WM Synergy's Center of Excellence team came onsite to help us map out our Purchasing, Inventory, and Planning/Scheduling processes. We knew we weren’t aligned with best practice and were looking for guidance, based on both software and industry expertise, to get us there. I’ve been involved in many mapping sessions throughout my career and the event facilitated by WM Synergy exceeded my expectations. The sessions were well organized and thorough, and our team was engaged, embracing change, and actively involved with defining a future that aligned with best practice. We are looking forward to executing on the provided plan to get our new processes in place. If you know you need to improve your processes, I highly recommend the WM Synergy Center of Excellence Team’s expertise and their Process Reengineering engagements to support you.

We recently engaged the WM Synergy Center of Excellence to facilitate an Everything DiSC Management session. The session was unanimously received as being a very positive event. This program will help this group become better managers as our company grows. Many of this management team will take on more responsibilities over the next year and it is important they are as prepared as possible to ensure the long-term success of the company. I highly recommend working with the WM Synergy Center of Excellence team and the Everything DiSC program to facilitate teamwork at your organization, as well as strengthen your management team.

We have engaged WM Synergy’s Center of Excellence in a series of Process Re-Engineering sessions over the course of several months. At Leonard Valve, we have strategic plans to reshape our organization, where the processes haven’t changed in many years, to create a new foundation for growth and efficiency. Engaging WM Synergy to help us streamline our business processes is a fundamental part of this effort. It has not only helped us identify best practice process and ERP utilization for our business model, it has also engaged our employees so they are part of defining the future and looking forward to change and improvements. I can’t recommend this valuable approach or the Center of Excellence team enough.

We engaged WM Synergy to support us in our shop floor design as we were moving to a new location. By walking through the process, creating spaghetti diagrams, documenting wastes, and brainstorming optimal flows in our new footprint, we were able to map out and implement an optimized shop floor layout. Where we had previously occupied different areas, had starts and stops in our process and some materials stored far away, we now have an incredible layout where you can see the status of the cells at a glance. I highly recommend the WM Synergy Center of Excellence team if you are looking to gain efficiency, reduce floorspace, and have room for growth whether it’s in your existing space or a new space.

Joining Industries engaged WM Synergy’s Center of Excellence to conduct Business Process Re-Engineering sessions for our Operations and Financial processes. We knew there were more efficient ways to get from Quote to Cash with our ERP system but needed help to figure out how to get there. We also wanted to make sure our current system was still the right fit for our business. We found the sessions to be extremely valuable – not only did we engage our team in defining our future, but we also came away with a solid plan and strategy to achieve it. We know we are heading in the right direction for our business and the improvements identified will set the stage for our future growth.

We worked with the WM Synergy Center of Excellence team over the course of four days to map out all of our business processes. We currently have one of the largest backlogs in our company's history and needed to reevaluate how we approached all aspects of our operations in order to gain efficiency and speed. We went from wondering if our ERP was the right fit for our business to being confident in what the future holds for us; employees that started out skeptical left feeling like there was light at the end of the tunnel. Deciding to move forward with this event really felt like a leap of faith, but I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this approach to any organization – while we know we have work ahead of us to put everything in place, we couldn’t be happier with this as the first step of our approach.

WM Synergy educated our company on the value of Lean and the proper execution of Kaizen and ERP optimization. As they facilitated each event, they were teaching our team how to sustain improvements and how to continue the program for years to come. WM Synergy made it clear, they were here to educate, not to direct and that if we were to be successful going forward, we would need to become the experts and take full ownership of the program.

We at Spectronics greatly appreciate the help we are getting from WM Synergy. The team assigned to us is incredibly knowledgeable and enjoyable to work with. Most impressive is the change in company culture that has occurred over the time the WM Synergy team has been working with us. We see them as part of the Spectronics team. Now, as we move into the next phase and introduce Lean methodologies into our program, we know our employees are ready to accept change that will lead to more sustainable improvements.

WM Synergy really stands out in its quality, attentiveness, and competence. No other ERP vendor that I contacted has spent the time and effort with us that WM Synergy did. They delivered both strategic business consulting and an implementation plan that addresses all of our concerns. As a small business manufacturer that is looking to grow significantly in the next five years, I believe that WM Synergy will be a valuable strategic partner.

The WM Synergy team worked with Innovant employees to improve our business processes and make visible the critical information needed to support data-driven decisions. They also helped us to redeploy and integrate our ERP, Design/Rendering, CRM, and CAD systems in a more effective manner. And today, for the first time ever, we can leverage these systems to monitor key performance indicators, measure progress, report financials, and accurately see detailed costs, which will help Innovant drive more improvement activities well into the future.
