Gwalior Alcobrew Engages Sage Software Solutions For Streamlining Manufacturing Processes
Gwalior Alcobrew Pvt .Ltd., an alco-bev company having its unit at Gwalior is the largest producer of spirits in Madhya Pradesh. With the plant sprawling over hundreds of acres, GAPL is one of the largest plants for producing grain based spirits in the country and was the first distillery in the state of Madhya Pradesh to produce grain based spirits during its installation.
With this sheer magnitude of size and processes, GAPL soon started facing a concern for keeping all its processes streamlined and accessible in a single view. “We had multiple systems for tracking different processes.” Says Mr. P.V.Murlidharan, General Manager, “this soon started posing a huge functional problem for us as we did not have a single view of our manufacturing unit and relied on different systems for different set of data. This would lead to delay in identifying lacuna in the process and eventually a delay in taking strategic decisions. When we realised this problem, we wanted a solution that would help us get rid of all the multiple systems and gave us control of all our processes along with a complete control of the inventory from putting in request, purchasing, financing, procurement to disbursement. We previously used spreadsheets and excel to maintain our data but we needed a solution which would make this data actionable. This was when, we evaluated options and found Sage X3 to be a possible solution for our business”.
