TEC Helps Corona, a Global Ceramics Leader, Simplify Its ERP Selection in Record Time

Corona solves problem of multiple ERPs through objective software evaluation and selection methodology

Montreal, QC, July 14, 2009 - Corona, one of the largest conglomerates in South America, specializing in ceramic and tile products, recently engaged the services of Technology Evaluation Centers Inc. (TEC), the leading resource for enterprise software, to help evaluate its existing enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems against top solutions in the market. TEC's best-practices methodology and decision support system, eBestMatch™, enabled Corona to confidently select in record time a standardized ERP solution for all of its operations-without anyone having to leave the office.

While recent company acquisitions helped Corona achieve growth, they also resulted in several ERP systems that weren't able to communicate with each other. "Our primary goal was to find one ERP system that could be implemented at all manufacturing locations, allowing data to be consolidated and used effectively, and reducing overall complexity," explains Beatriz Jaramillo, Corona's coordinator of process engineering and ERP.

TEC's software evaluation capabilities and up-to-date, extensive vendor-criteria knowledge base made it easy for Corona to identify and prioritize detailed feature-and-functionality business requirements. "All in all, we reduced the time ... to half of what we'd needed for previous software evaluations," says Jaramillo.

Any initial reservations about working with a firm remotely on such a complex project were put to rest by TEC's ability to deliver timely, accurate support in multiple languages, including Spanish. "TEC's methodology truly lived up to its reputation as a best practice" adds Hernan Dario Londoño Zea, Corona IT director.
