When converting to a new system, training is a key element for the technical staff as well as the user community. Supporting a new system provides a unique challenge for in-house technical personnel, and Ashwood offers assistance by teaching how to support applications from the database level.
Upgrading our legacy ‘Results’ system to Ashwood’s ForeMost on Reality has helped to enable Barium & Chemicals to save time and money. It has enabled our employees to work more efficiently. With ForeMost, our inventory turn-over rate is improved, we have more accurate material tracking, and we have expedited our order processing and invoicing.
Our typical order can include many line items of very large quantities and varying products. Some orders are as small as 1 lb sample to truckloads of the same product or mixed products. We produce many different chemical compounds and each compound can have various specifications matching the customer’s engineer’s drawing or request. We custom pack our materials to our customer’s individual material handling request.
Detailed order requirements and documentation are a requirement on the sales order and shipping packets that must travel with every order to our customer sites located around the world. International Regulatory requirements such as the Harmonized Global Standard labeling, DOT, IMDG, IATA labeling, Harmonized Tariff codes, Safety Data Sheet requirements and other various trade regulations often apply and ForeMost enables us promptly and efficiently address these requirements.
I was very impressed by Bob Wyatt and I think Ashwood is very fortunate to have people of this caliber on staff. This has been by far the easiest and least problematic of any conversion I have been involved with in my 30 years in this industry. Bob has the rare and elusive combination of excellent technical skills combined with excellent communication skills that I thought only existed in theory. Throughout the entire conversion process, Bob kept me informed of where we were, let me be involved in any decision that would affect our business and answered all of my questions concerning new features on the new system.
Again, thanks for all of Ashwood’s help with this transition. I look forward to continue our working relationship as we go forward with our system development and continue to grow our business.
It has been a pleasure working with Ashwood Computer’s techs. They have been assisting Utilities, Inc. with the legacy portion of our conversion to Oracle, and have worked diligently to be on-time with each project deadline. They have also come in under budget. In a complex conversion such as this to be on-time and under budget is a rarity and most welcomed. We look forward to working with Ashwood in the future as additional project present themselves.
Things are going fine here and Mr. Bob has been keeping a watchful eye on us.
Speaking of Mr. Bob, “Things Go Better With Bob”!
I wanted to take a moment to tell you how incredibly pleased I was to have had Bob on site to get our new server up and running.
Bob’s knowledge and skill-set are matched only by his constant professionalism.
It’s such a great feeling to know that someone who really knows what they are doing is there to help us when we need it.
Murphy and I enjoyed his visit and just can’t say enough about how nice it is to work with someone as competent and professional as Bob.
I’ve spoken to Scott Herndon and we all agree that we need Bob out here at least once a year to do preventive maintenance, to keep the machine running in good condition and to help us with all the many projects that we are going to need help with.
We’ll definitely be coordinating that visit with you soon.
