E N T E R P R I S E l CASE STUDY l Customer Profile This 30-year-old company has grown into a multi-billion dollar organization by providing exceptional customer service and expanding their market share with new customers and key acquisitions. Thousands of employees in dozens of locations around the world focus on waste management collection and destruction in a safe and sustainable manner. This company has a reputation for meeting both customer expectations as well as strict regulatory and compliance requirements. Despite the complicated logistics for collection and destruction of waste materials, this company has a stellar reputation for meeting the requirements for scheduled pickups at corporate offices, hospitals, and pharmaceutical locations, and completing safe, secure drop offs at appropriate disposal / destruction facilities. Like so many of waste management counterparts, this company uses a management information system (MIS) and enterprise resource planning (ERP) application to organize several aspects of the business, from scheduling to finance. Their acquisitions over recent years had left the company with several dozen disparate MIS / ERP software applications in use, which had become an insurmountable challenge in trying to streamline processes, logistical scheduling, accounting, finance, and other business areas. Unfortunately, the inefficiencies led executive leadership to direct a business initiative to improve its internal processes and control cost-efficiencies. When IT recommended that a new, modern, integrated, and feature-rich MIS/ERP software application should be implemented, the company agreed and approved the substantial, multi-year budget to complete the project.
