“Working with the Eide Bailly team to implement NetSuite was a great choice for our organization. They got us exactly what we needed within our required time frame. Now we are able to manage multiple subsidiaries from one single place and save time and effort on inventory processes.”

Key Challenges

  • The accumulation of different software solutions, each designed for a single purpose
  • Unscalable, disconnected systems resulting in data silos
  • Time-consuming processes

A Custom, Scalable Solution Designed to Support Growth

Due to the complex nature of their manufacturing operation, which relied on highly specialized processes and recipes, BHN was looking for an ERP system that would accommodate all facets of the operation, from accounting to manufacturing and quality control.

Our team was able to design a customized solution for BHN with NetSuite for Manufacturing and RF-SMART, a built-for-NetSuite inventory management solution. Combined with NetSuite ERP, the solution allowed the BHN team to drastically reduce their inventory count time from three days to a few hours by leveraging automated processes and new barcode scanning solutions. This helped free up time and resources for the team to focus on other aspects of the operations, rather than manual data collection. In addition, the automated features of NetSuite ERP and the warehouse management system has greatly reduced the risk of human error.

The Implementation Isn’t Over After Go-Live

With our team’s rapid prototyping capabilities, BNH was able to test and review different environments before committing to their implementation. This not only helped shorten implementation time but also ensured that the end-result was exactly what the company envisioned. As an added benefit, the customizable nature of NetSuite ERP has made it easy to integrate newly acquired subsidiaries post-implementation. BHN not only received an optimized solution that met its unique business needs but also enhanced business processes to allow the company to scale and remain competitive.
