Bryanston, South Africa and Lichtenvoorde, Netherlands – February 25, 2004 – Lithotech Limited, the largest, market-leading producer of continuous and cut-sheet business forms in South Africa, and DiMS! organizing print, a leading supplier of Management Information Solutions for the printing and packaging industry, jointly announce that Lithotech has chosen to implement DiMS! in their 13 South African locations and is planning the same for the 8 French locations. Leveraging DiMS!’ comprehensive ERP functionality, the deal will enable Lithotech to improve operating procedures across every segment of the company – both locally and on an enterprise-wide basis – and strengthen its position as a leading solutions provider rather than merely a products and services supplier.
Lithotech will roll out the DiMS! software in its production facilities and sales branches in South Africa, in addition to planned implementations in the company’s French locations. By implementing DiMS!’ Web-enabled, multilingual print management system, Lithotech aims to integrate and optimize its processes at the company wide level, while at the same time avoiding language and currency issues. In addition, DiMS! will enable Lithotech to dramatically improve customer service and efficiency. Dedicated to delivering customer-focused solutions, Lithotech views DiMS!’ flexibility and proactive workflow as the perfect complement to its business vision.
In addition to the unmatched architectural composition of the software, Lithotech selected DiMS! for its comprehensive, customer-centric ERP functionality: “DiMS! is a clear winner against other contenders and our requirements. The system is inherently extremely customer-centric with good global visibility and functionality from Estimate through to Factory and back to final Sales Invoice,” said Gary Craye, Group IS Manager, Lithotech Ltd. “It appears to be the only package with adequate enterprise strength for the multi-company situation, and it will cater to all our business types,” he added.
