ESS is a leading provider of audio and digital video semiconductor
and software solutions for the PC and consumer electronics
company offers comprehensive multimedia solutions
for audio, video, modem and home networking applications.
ESS Technology sells its products to a variety
of global consumer electronics manufacturers including
Compaq, Dell, Hewlett Packard, IBM and Sony.
ESS was relying heavily on manual, non-integrated processes.
There were many problems in the areas of inventory
visibility and accurate cost accounting. Their products required flexible quoting and
order management, tightly linked to the planning process. They had no ability to track lots through the
manufacturing process, and plan their capacity in
line with their demands.
Quovera proposed an integrated solution allowing for automation
of processes, information accessibility, growth, and
our industry expertise in the semiconductor vertical,
we were able to recommend best practices and identify
areas requiring re-engineering and optimization. We also had an eProduct integrating Oracle
Applications and Fastech FactoryWorks, greatly reducing
the time-to-implement for this solution.
