"Every seven to ten years, our company wants to re-evaluate what's out there to see if there's a better product for our business," says Kenneth Kemp, Brentwood's IT manager. Like any other company in an industry as competitive as plastics, Brentwood constantly seeks to increase workforce efficiency, product quality, and operational excellence by improving the speed of access to data throughout the company. The most recent assessment came at a crucial moment.

The company needed its technology to support that level of growth while keeping margins strong. Managers also wanted to consolidate their list of software vendors to improve global visibility for all operations and provide users easier access to data.View Customer Profile PDF
