PITTSBURGH, April 23 /PRNewswire/ — Adonix, a Sage company and provider of leading enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions to mid-market companies, today announced that Langley/Empire Candle Company (www.langleycandle.com) selected the Sage ERP X3 Process software suite to manage its production operations and gain access to real-time business information.
Based in Kansas City, Kansas, Langley/Empire Candle Company produces over 300 types of candles, specializing in handcrafted, scented candles made by American workers. The company distributes through big box retailers like Wal-Mart and Kmart, as well as through an online storefront.
"Our legacy solution couldn't support our business processes," said Erik Williams, Director of Information Technology for Langley/Empire. "And, we couldn't anticipate problems before they occurred. Since a lot of our processes were still followed up by hand, we couldn't get real numbers until 60 days out."
Sage ERP X3 provides real-time information via a variety of easy-to-use, built-in tools. Dashboards and the User Portal build on the system's intrinsic business intelligence capabilities by providing user-defined, actionable graphical representations of key statistical information such as revenues and equipment usage. Dashboards can help boost profits by providing instantaneous access to key company data, allowing management to quickly react to changing business conditions. The newly released Sage ERP X3 version 5 also features a new business intelligence engine, which allows users to analyze their business performance on the fly, by simple drag and drop of aggregated data that are updated in real time with the flow of daily operations.
Langley/Empire Candle Company will also implement Sage ERP X3 Data Collection for the seamless and secure processing of a broad array of shop floor and warehousing transactions. "With better visibility into inventory levels and labor tracking," said Williams, "we'll be able to eliminate unnecessary capital expenses." He added, "Sage ERP X3 offers all the functionality we need without requiring third-party add-ons. Adonix is a one-stop shop and it will be very convenient to call only one supplier if we need help."
Additionally, Williams expects that Sage ERP X3 will help free up resources to focus on the company's growth strategy. "Without being bogged down by paperwork and manual, repetitive processes and with accurate, real-time information, we'll be able to put our expansion plans into action," he said.
