If good governance means ensuring we can build better machines, faster and at a lower cost, then I’m convinced that this is not possible without IT.

Frank Vandeputte, CEO of Valvan Baling Systems

By continuously innovating and focusing on new demands in the market, the project-orientated machine construction specialist Valvan Baling Systems has been able to secure an enviable competitive position on the international stage. The Valvan Baling Systems approach was a smart one – consistently correlating all of its activities with a project. Its management team swiftly gained a comprehensive overview of the products which brought benefits and those which resulted in losses. But the systems used to supply the information needed to manage this approach simply couldn’t cope with the rapid growth that the company had experienced over the past few years. To help keep this approach on course, Valvan opted for Microsoft Dynamics AX and selected Ad Ultima Group as its implementation partner.

Thanks to Microsoft Dynamics AX, the organisation is now transparent and controlled and the return on investment has already been achieved.
