Forging and stamping company replaces legacy ERP with IFS

Client background

Founded in 1941, New Standard Corporation is one of the largest metal stamping, fabrication, welding and assembly companies on the East Coast of America with a team of 400 associates in three locations.

The business challenge

In moving from their old ERP solution, New Standard was looking to benefit from the significant advances made in business system technology over the past two decades. Critically, New Standard needed to be able to drive efficient business processes, using real-time data to gain actionable insights into their high-volume, multi-site operation. They were looking for a dramatic reduction of between 25-50% in administrative data entry related tasks to all our functional areas, as well as being able to take advantage of the newer ERP functionality that simply didn’t exist at the time.

What stood out for me with Baker Tilly Digital was their technical capability and expertise as well as their understanding of our business needs. Often, it feels like consultancy firms are trying to fit you into their framework, but Baker Tilly Digital’s approach was more tailored. They came in to see what our actual needs were and then crafted an engagement based on that.

Strategy and solution

Once they had selected IFS Applications 10, New Standard struggled to find the right implementation partner in North America. Whilst they had the basis of a solution, they were finding it difficult to pull it all together. After visiting Baker Tilly Digital’s booth at the IFS World Conference in 2019, Baker Tilly Digital then provided a proposal to New Standard setting out how they could assist the team to get their project live.

Baker Tilly Digital began working with the New Standard team in January 2020 with onsite visits and workshops to help complete the solution design and begin work on the implementation phase. However, when COVID-19 struck, both companies had to quickly adapt the engagement to ensure the project could continue. Fortunately, Baker Tilly Digital was able to accommodate despite travel restrictions.
