Fin Forelia, the market leader for forest tree seedling nursery production and sales has chosen Aava Software as their solution provider for an enterprise resource planning system. The goal of the system implementation is to secure Fin Forelia’s market leadership in an industry in transformation also in the future.
“The tree seedling nursery business is evolving in leaps, it has potential. Process-thinking especially is relatively new in the industry. Grinding our activities has required a change in our company thinking” says the Managing Director of Fin Forelia Juha Hotti.
The information system used by Fin Forelia earlier was noticed to have material defects, centered around production management. The old system could not anymore meet the demands of the company.
“Everything must work together seamlessly and the activity must be effective without sacrifing quality. It requires constant development in IT systems as well”, Hotti states.
Fin Forelia needed a comprehensive and integrated enterprise resource planning system to manage for example, tree seeds ordering and production, production materials procurement, materials and inventory management, logistics and order invoicing. The system needed to be easily expandable to changing needs of the future. The company analyzed existing solutions in the market and chose Aava’s flexible and easy to use ERP solution.
“In Aava solution, what impressed us expecially was the flexibility and company’s capability to build a solution fitting our exact needs” Hotti says and continues “ Our decision was sealed with Aava’s guarantee of completing the project in the agreed schedule and budget”.
