Partnering with gA, a global leader in Digital Business Transformation, helped Gowan achieve greater efficiencies and effective operations that Gowan could not have accessed on their own
Miami, USA- April 2017 – gA, a global leader in Digital Business Transformation, recently completed the optimization of supply chain processes for Gowan Company, a provider of quality crop protection product solutions for specialty niche agricultural markets.
After Gowan acquired a product line from a global chemical brand, the package included a manufacturing facility in Canada. However, “Due to the change of ownership, the plant was left in manual mode,” explained Robert E. Sanchez, Global IT Manager, Gowan Company. “The previous owners had SAP and a bar coding system in place. With those systems gone, inefficiencies were rippling across all supply chain process. Transaction procedures were slow, and data entries were often redundant. The lack of visibility for inventory and its movement through the supply chain resulted in inaccurate inventory statements and loss.”
Challenged to match the high performance operational procedures that were previously in place, and increase supply chain visibility immediately, Gowan partnered with gA. As a global leader in Digital Business Transformation, gA helped Gowan achieve efficiencies and effective operations that Gowan could not have accessed on their own.
To unleash the full efficiency of Gowan’s newly acquired manufacturing facility, gA applied the latest digital technology from DSI, as the solution. The DSI platform, deployable both in the cloud and mobile-first, and the project execution exceeded Gowan’s initial needs for inventory control and tracking by presenting new possibilities for success as a manufacturer.
Using cutting edge digital tools and applications, gA’s digital transformation of Gowan’s supply chain delivered optimal efficiencies and cost effectiveness, with real time visibility and accuracy that far surpassed what was achievable by simply replacing the bar coding system.
“Partnering with gA opened a broad new arena of opportunities and functionalities,” said Robert E. Sanchez, Global IT Manager, Gowan Company. “gA team has been very responsive, with excellent communication, and project planning skills. The project was completed on time and within budget. It has been a truly fantastic experience.”
Impressed with these results, Gowan continues to work with gA developing a Transformation Roadmap to launch a second partnership project, a Mobile Route Sales application for Gowan’s Sales Representatives in Italy. “We have an ongoing partnership for technologies we want to push,” add Sanchez. “gA’s project management and customer focus is delivering added value to all we do at Gowan, and we are very excited for the future.”
