Yamaha Motor (Nikkei Listed) is the second largest motor company in Indonesia with the production volume reaching 1.5 millions units per year (2004 figures) with almost 24 hrs production cycle.

The integration between systems, such as productions, sales, taxations, inventories, and financial systems became tedious, complex, and irrelevant. Double inputting existed within departments and consolidation became nightmare.

After total made over the existing chart of account, reporting formats, and better collaboration within departments by establishing a newer SOP and policy.

KDS Manufacturing (Nikkei listed) is one of the four largest crystal maker in the world with capitalization of over 150 millions US dollars, supplying companies like Nokia and Sony. The initial complain was that they were having difficulty in providing the 14 ‘must have’ standard reports to Japan. It seems that they could not get much out of the existing system, Sun Micro System. These mandatory reports consist of production costing reports, project costing reports, cash flow reports, financial reports, production comparative reports, and accounting reports.
Initially, expectations and goals were clearly set; however, client did not have any idea on how to go about achieving it. After series of meeting, the requirements were being documented and studied by our team. Thorough planning and implementation strategy were also being introduced. The implementation was then successfully being carried out in less than 2 months. Excelsoft was able to generate all the mandatory reports (total of 14 different types) without having to modify the standard system. KDS can now directly produce the reports from automatic MS Excel Sheet without having to type any single numbers. Yet, the automated sheet is linked and refreshed every few seconds to reflex the actual data. The users were deeply impressed and rejoiced for their daily agonizing routine has been lifted.
We were told that these ’14 reports’ took 3 -4 weeks to produce in Tokyo head office. The Indonesian office was able to produce within 2 weeks for they have more manpower. Now, the director quoted “now I will print the reports few minutes before the meeting”
