Manufacturing and Distribution
Globalization has dramatically altered the once stable business conditions of manufacturers in North America. Domestic manufacturers are now facing tough global competition and decreased access to the U.S. market. This rise of global competition has changed the dynamics of the industry. The rules of the game have changed and so must the strategies.
Ideaca’s extensive experience in the manufacturing industry and benefits based delivery approach can help manufacturers adapt to globalization. We hold the key to staying on top of the competition – and that key is the elimination of wasteful activities that inflate costs and lower quality. Our technological solutions will enable you to reduce inventories, reduce costs, increase productivity and improve visibility into your operations.
With over 10 years of experience and 200 active consultants across Canada in Toronto, Kitchener, Edmonton, Calgary, Vancouver and USA, we have demonstrated success through our deep understanding of the industry. We have implemented solutions for many of the industry leaders in Canada including: ZCL Composites, Automated Tooling Systems, Canadian General Tower, Catalyst, Delta Controls, Samuel Manutech, Spin Master, Visioneering, Vicwest and Thermon Canada. We have the experience, depth and breadth of business and technical skills to help your business grow now and into the future.

What Areas Can We Help With?
We have a proven track record of working with manufacturing companies. The following are some of the solutions that we have delivered in the manufacturing industry to improve effectiveness:
Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP)Increase visibility and improve business operations to focus less on tactical pressures and more on innovation and strategic growth
Now more than ever manufacturers must produce the right products at the right price in the right quantities, while meeting compliance standards and evolving customer demands. There are plenty of ERP solutions available to help with these challenges but fully achieving the promises of an ERP solution requires more than just technical know-how. Ideaca creates lasting results by coupling technical know-how with a deep understanding of manufacturing specific business processes as well as tight alignment to specific, measure business goals. We deliver industry leading ERP solutions on the Microsoft Dynamics AX and SAP All-in-One platforms.
Manufacturing ERP AcceleratorDrive improved business performance with a preconfigured, fully integrated ERP system for small to mid-size manufacturers
Manufacturing ERP solutions have aided industry leaders in establishing the appropriate balance between optimizing customer satisfaction, running a streamlined operation and improving the bottom line. Yet, traditionally a fully integrated ERP solution has been beyond the reach of small to mid-size manufacturers due to the cost to implement and support the solution. Ideaca’s Manufacturing ERP Accelerator (idart), based on the Microsoft Dynamics AX , provides out of the box functionality, allowing small to mid-size manufacturers to compete more effectively at a significantly reduced TCO.
Corporate Intranet for Self ServiceProvide users with information and services to automate core administrative tasks
Corporate users are looking for ways to replace off-line, manual administration tasks. Ideaca’s Portals and Collaboration self-service solutions provide capabilities for employees to better manage their work and personal information in areas such as compensation information, benefits information, pay information, expense reporting, office services, compliance/security and training information.
Quality and Compliance Management SolutionStreamlines business processes with ISO standards across multiple departments
It’s absolutely necessary for manufacturers to adhere to company regulations and government compliance, but relying on a paper-based system within each department creates inefficiencies such as duplicate effort, lack of consistency and non-value added time consumption. Ideaca’s solution automates ISO compliant quality management processes for improved productivity and efficiency.
