Many of us know of Kores as the manufacturer of stationery items for offices
like punching machines, carbon paper and colors. But Kores goes far beyond that.
They are into 12 different lines of business. Each of these businesses was
running in islands isolated from each other. Sales depots, head office and
divisional offices were not connected to each other. Consolidation of data was a
major problem. Kores wanted an application that would bring in standardization
across all units, branches and business lines, and all offices would be
integrated with each other and connected to the head office.

They used MySAP 4.1 ERP, Oracle as the database and HPUX as the OS.

This deployment has helped reduce inventory as it has now become easy to find
out stock positions. Better production planning is now possible now, and there
is better control on sales schemes and discounts.

Project Specs

management, from production to post delivery.
