San José, Costa Rica and Lisle, IL, United States – April 27, 2004 – Litografia e Imprenta LIL S.A. the #1 printer in Costa Rica and DiMS! organizing print, a leading supplier of Management Information Solutions for the printing and packaging industry, jointly announce that LIL S.A. has decided to implement DiMS! in their printing facility. As one of the largest printers in Central America, leveraging DiMS!’ flexible ERP functionality, will enable LIL S.A. to handle all business processes for the broad range of printed products they produce, including; forms, books, folding cartons, labels, commercial print and office products.
Improving control of their manufacturing processes, as well as enhancing customer service and consequently increasing profitability, were LIL’s major motivations to select DiMS! as their new integrated system. Additionally the 100% web-enablement of this industry-specific system will keep LIL S.A. ahead of the market as customers’ needs demand an increased service level. “As a strategic decision we began 2 years ago our research on an ERP solution to fit all the complex needs of our ever-changing industry. During 20 months we evaluated many ERP solutions around the World. Finally we decided that our future Manufacturing System had to be specifically designed for the graphics industry. It had to understand the complexity of the business by integrating the best practices of the printing industry,” said Mr. Mario Salazar, General Manager of Litografía e Imprenta LIL S.A.
LIL S.A. will be using the entire DiMS! system. As a leader in print in Latin America it is very important for LIL S.A. to keep, and even extend their position. Mr. Mario Salazar explains, “We have big expectations of DiMS! in order to improve the control of our manufacturing processes and to enhance customer service, and accordingly, we anticipate it will increase our sales opportunities in Central America and the United States, with a very high positive impact on the finances of our company. Our expectations are that with DiMS! we will consolidate all our strategic plans!”
DiMS! organizing print expects this to be the beginning of a very successful future in the Spanish language market. In addition to this agreement, just recently more deals in the United States, Europe, and South Africa were signed.
