Tokai Rika Co. Ltd., an automotive components supplier based in Aichi, Japan, has selected glovia.com as its enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution for a new subsidiary in the Czech Republic. Glovia.com's comprehensive automotive solution includes customer releasing, electronic data interchange and kanban. Customer release integrates automotive release maintenance with demand creation, planning, shipping and accounting. The EDI information, which includes orders, forecasts and advanced shipping notices, will be fed directly into the customer releasing module and the production system. Isaki Sugiura, vice president of administration at Tokai Rika Czech Republic, said glovia.com fit its requirements. "Integration with kanban was one of the key requirements as it is used to control the production line and material flow. The pilot demonstrated a more than 90% fit of Glovia's preconfigured ERP system with the business processes of Tokai Rika." Glovia.com is a product of Glovia International, which is a subsidiary of Fujitsu Ltd., Tokyo.
