According to Gary Gold, vice president of quality assurance, and Troy Grove, director of business technology, the payback took less than nine months. Berner's non-conformity reporting and inventory systems have helped reduce scrap and waste by 38 percent, saving more than $200,000 a year. The new warehouse and in-process records systems have reduced labor costs by 10 to 12 percent, saving $40,000 to $50,000 per year.
Scot McLeod, vice president of marketing for Ross Systems, says the Ross iRenaissance system can be used by a single-plant or multinational corporation. System pricing varies from $75,000 to more than $500,000, depending on the size and scope of the deployment. With its vertical focus, the cost of implementation services tends to match the cost of the software.
