Clean technology pioneer Protean Electric has awarded K3 Business Technology Group (K3) a contract to supply a fully integrated SYSPRO enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution to support the company’s rapid growth and expansion plans. The groundbreaking green automotive propulsion manufacturer has begun implementing the system with a go-live scheduled for January 2010.
K3 has tailored the SYSPRO system to Protean Electric’s specific requirements for fully automated finance, purchasing, production, engineering and distribution management. The company’s investment in the system underpins its commitment to providing excellent customer service and boost its own efficiencies, eliminating waste and gaining full real-time visibility of its entire operation.
"We selected SYSPRO because we believe that it will grow with us. From all the other products we reviewed, it offered the best fit for our business. It will take us through the changes we will experience as the company evolves when demand for our revolutionary Hi-Pa Drive electric system increases. We are looking to SYSPRO to provide us with all the information we need to effectively manage our business in real-time, giving us full visibility of every area of our operation, accurate management reporting and traceability," says Sylvie Nonhebel, Purchasing and Project Manager, Protean Electric.
"K3’s implementation plan is excellent and the modular design of SYSPRO makes it a very cost-effective solution. As we demand more from the system, we can extend it. This will provide a future-proof investment for the company," she adds.
Protean Electric’s revolutionary Hi-Pa Drive system is a powerful, light and clean power delivery system and development platform that meets a wide range of vehicle propulsion applications. The system is a disruptive in-wheel vehicle propulsion alternative for all sizes of vehicle, giving engineers, designers and integrators more power per pound, energy recovery, range, profits and design flexibility. This intelligent clean technology helps car manufactures to profitably build plug-in series hybrid electric vehicles with superior range, lower costs and more attractive designs.
